You are probably wondering why you should vote for me and for what? I am part of a online foodie community called FoodBuzz. Through this website, I have "meet" so many people with the same interest. I love the website because I get inspired everyday. I learn about various techniques and food combinations I would never think of using. They are hosting a little competition called the Project Food Blog. Each week there is a challenge and if you are selected, you get to move on to the next round. When I heard about this, I immediately entered. Food and blog challenges also challenges me to learn and grow as a chef.
The first challenge was main to let the world know about me and why I should continue on in this competition. If you know me, I'm pretty much an open book (a nice way of saying, I talk way too much). For this challenged I asked myself this question, what defines me as a foodie?
I was a foodie at a young age. I would go to a bakery and just stare at all the beautiful pastries they would offer. I thought it was amazing how the bakers took simply ingredients and created something so elegant as a cake, croissant, or even a cookie. More times than not, I would hide the little masterpiece I chose at a bakery and I would only eat a little at time so it would last longer.
During college, I did look into culinary schools but The Brother reminded me my resistance as a child in learning how to cook from my grandmother. I resisted as much as possible not to learn how to cook. My loving Lola would ask me, what will I do when I get married. My response was "I will just marry someone that could cook". This is probably why I was never promoted from peeling and chopping. So that career choice was out, I shouldn't have listened to him.
I'm a late blogger, one of my good friends Anna introduced me into blogging by her blog. I thought it was a great outlet but I didn't think I had anything to say. I was really surprised when I started, I had quite a few ideas. There was bumps in the beginning but I'm glad I stuck to it.
My philosophy on cooking is that each attempt at a recipe is an adventure. There are new techniques and flavors that would be explored. I even considered the mishaps adventures. Those adventures teaches you what not to do.
