Hi everyone, I’m so so so excited this morning to share with you a bit of news that’s been in the works for awhile (no, I’m not pregnant, mom).
It’s the Honest Cooking tablet magazine!!
A little more than a year ago I started contributing to the Honest Cooking website, a forum for food writers and bloggers from around the world to share fun recipes and interesting food stories. Last summer, it was announced that Honest Cooking would be releasing a food magazine — and all contributing writers were welcome to submit. Up until that point, I had been working on writing pieces for relatively unknown expat magazines and tiny blogs. Somehow I had to get serious about turning writing into a career, and here was the perfect opportunity.
I pitched two pieces, one of which got picked up. Truth be told, I think I was on the B-team, as the email received told me that someone else had backed out and I was chosen to fill in last minute. The email asked if I could do it.
Umm, let’s see. Fly back to California last minute for four days, spending half of what I would make for the article, to make a deadline that was due within a week? YES, PLEASE!
Half a year later, I’m so excited to report that my work is in print — er, on the screen. The tablet magazine was released today, and it’s 100 pages of glorious food stories — about rogue artisans, local craftsmen, international cuisines, and nitty gritty profiles, all testaments to why food and dining rock.
