Ok, my bloggies, it’s that time again and I’m excited to introduce you to this lady, Joan of Foodalogue! I really really love this gal, she had me at Culinary Tour Around the World and has kept me for every bite she shares. Joan is part Spanish, Italian (I think), photographer, traveler, publisher, tour guide, chef–the list goes on! The reason you’ll like her, is because she’s an awesome writer, a kick-ass photographer, her recipes are impressive and you can just tell she’s just ‘good people’.
With such a resume, I HAD to ask her to honor me with a guest post and that she did. I’ll get out of the way so you too can get better acquainted.
What is the elevator pitch for your blog?
It’s a well-designed blog by a home cook who takes food to the next level with creative interpretations and finishing touches, spiced with light narratives, photography, and travelogues.
Why and when did you decide to become a blogger?
I’ve been involved in desktop publishing in the workplace for years so it was a natural segue and the perfect forum to meld my passions — food, travel, photography and writing. I began FOODalogue in August 2008.
What’s next for your blog?
FOODalogue has been strictly savory but I’ve recently started to think about baking…something I’ve not tackled because I’m always watching calories. I also hope to travel more next year so I guess I¹ll be updating my I ATE series from new locations.
Who’s playing on your IPod?
Mixed bag of Latin and Soul and some pop stars like Rod Stewart singing the classics. Also ‘zumba’ music for my exercise walks.
Which 4 shows are you currently hooked on?
Only 4? Love most food challenges on FoodTV and Bravo; The Good Wife, Parenthood, Grey’s…(Modern Family, Brothers + Sisters if I could squeeze 2 more in.)
If your job made you move, but you could choose which country you would be living in, which country would you choose and why?
It would probably be Italy or Spain (or some Spanish-speaking country) because of my ancestral heritage and cultural leanings.
If you could go to Atlantic City with any celebrity alive today, who would it be?
Andy Garcia…hellooo, he’s Latin, good looking and played a casino boss in the Ocean’s Eleven movies.
I told you, didn’t I? She’s super chévere! She gave me a choice of posts to pick from and I had a tough time picking just one, but I thought I would allow your first experience with her be similar to the one I had. So, a travel/food log post it is. This one about her visit to Puerto Rico.
I was so excited to see her announcement for the 2011 Culinary Tour, there will be a stop in Panama… I wonder if you can find anyone from there…jiji. These are always fun and interesting, I hope you will participate and/or follow the journey. In the meantime, go check out Joan’s baby, Foodalogue, you’ll be happy you did.
