Introducing travel.write’s Mardi

Mardi of (@eatlivtravwrite) is a Canadian food blogger who is excited to be visiting London for #FBC5.  She told us about her love of food, travel and blogging!

What are you most looking forward to about #FBC5?
Connecting with people in real life. The learning! London!

What motivated you to blog about food and how has food blogging changed your life?
I started my food blog as a creative refuge in between my MA and my PhD. After a couple of years I realised I much preferred writing about food over academics and put my PhD on hold indefinitely…

Do you blog full time or, if not, what’s your day job? What does your family/partner think of your blog?
I’m a full time French teacher to elementary-school aged boys. My family (and my school – I blog about my boys’ cooking clubs) support my blog 100% – thankfully – I couldn’t do it without them!


What are your future aspirations for the blog? From where do you get inspiration and who taught you to cook?
Future aspirations? I love writing about travel and am also passionate about teaching kids to cook so I’d eventually love to have (a) regular column/s (online/ print) somewhere about one or both of those topics..



How many cookbooks do you own? Who is your favourite celebrity chef and and who is your favourite food writer? Why?
Over 200 cookbooks. I’m a huge fan of Jamie Oliver and all he’s achieved. Nigella is a favourite of mine also. Favourite food writer? Hmmm… I love Dorie Greenspan – her recipes are always spot on. Also, Ruth Reichl, Molly Wizenberg, David Lebovitz, David Leite… but there are SO many food writers whose work inspires me, it’s hard to put that in a list…

What’s your signature dish? If you want us to feature your favourite recipe from your own blog, include the link here!
Well, you know I seem to be known for making (and teaching others how to make) macarons…
