I haven’t posted in a long time and I think this is definitely the time to do so. I’ve been busy for a few years and kind of lost track of time in the world of food blogging. A lot has changed since I was actively doing it 8 years ago. During my first year I had 1500 posts because I’m a maniac like that. It’s not that I wasn’t creating things or working on things I just found it difficult to share. Instagram is easy and super efficient and it doesn’t really require me to write anything more than a word or two. I’m a pretty horrible writer so I stick to pictures and cooking more and more but I want to keep people in the loop rather than posts on Facebook which is closed off to people I know and whatnot. So here we are!
I don’t think that I’ll be able to write on this blog as much as I want. I have thought about doing a podcast for years and a youtube channel as well. I need to get a few more things going in that department to make it happen but it’s something that I will make happen by the end of the year, which is super exciting!
As far as what’s going on with me professionally I’m the executive chef of the Alexis Hotel. Bookstore Bar, Author’s Corner in Seattle. It’s pretty great because I have the chance to make whatever food I want and have a chance to explore cuisine even further than I ever have before. I’ve been asked by guests to do a newsletter about the goings on there so I wrote this a little earlier so you can also have a glimpse as to what I’m up to in the food world!
