Welcome Kenny, who’s bringing a slice of Italy to sunny London at #FBC5!

Kenny, an olive hater and food tour operator in Rome (yep, we’re not jealous at all), is hopping over to London to attend his first FBC. Kenny blogs at Eating Italy and tweets @eatingitaly.

What are you most looking forward to about #FBC5?

Meeting so many people whose blogs I love and meeting new people I don’t know about.

What motivated you to blog about food and how has food blogging changed your life?

I love food, I work in food, and I like sharing this interest with others. It connected me with people from all over the world with the same passion.

Do you blog full time or, if not, what’s your day job? What does your family/partner think of your blog?

My day job is leading food tours in Rome. I blog on the side.

What are your future aspirations for the blog? From where do you get inspiration and who taught you to cook?

For the blog to keep putting out more content and to try and continually find ways of making it fresh. My older cousin first taught me how to cook and then I travelled around the world and picked up new recipes and techniques cooking with others along the way.

Which other food bloggers do you follow most closely? Tell us something you learned from reading blogs you probably wouldn’t know otherwise?

Racheleats, Foodloversodyssey, chocolate and zucchini. I learned that writing for a blog can take on many different forms and styles its not a genre in itself.

What’s your favourite/least favourite food? What’s been your ultimate meal to date? And What would your last meal be?

Favorite – A caprese salad with aged balsamic
Least – Anything with too many olives
Egg Byriani

How many cookbooks do you own? Who is your favourite celebrity chef and and who is your favourite food writer? Why?

11 cookbooks. Anthony Bourdain for both because of his sense of humor and his unpretentiousness.

What’s your signature dish? If you want us to feature your favourite recipe from your own blog, include the link here!

Shrimp and grits.

Do you have a favourite kitchen tool/appliance? What’s the hottest item on your shopping list? (can be current foodie favourite or a desired gadget/book etc)

Coffee bean grinder. Desired gadget when I move away from Italy….espresso machine.
