I am pleased to present the judges for the Does My Blog Look Good in This? April 2010 Edition. We have a panel of judges from across the globe, collectively bringing together over 10 years of food blogging experience. I highly admire every one of these blogs, so want to thank each of these food artists for giving their time and expertise.
A native of Brittany, Dominique is intrinsically passionate about food. Her passion first and foremost is French food. She particularly enjoys creating flavoursome dishes with the array of foods abundant in the Breton region – seafood, vegetables, buckwheat flour, sea salt caramel. Her culinary taste buds are not limited to her native France. She has traveled extensively throughout the world – Indonesia, Japan, China, Morocco, Greece and Australia – savouring all the local food offerings available. She captures her local and international food journeys on her blog, De vous à moi.
Fresh is the dessert journal of El, a self-taught baker, writer and photographer who has a penchant for quality ingredients, artistic presentation and hand crafted desserts. A native New Englander, El loves local farms and orchards, historic homes, fresh cut flowers, fine chocolate and everything French. She holds two advanced degrees, has an incredible husband who makes homemade bread and puff pastry and together they are fixing up and decorating their Victorian home. El is an advocate of locally grown fresh food and believes that what and how we eat is a reflection of who we are.
Though Giao began her career as a management consultant for Fortune 500 clients, she’s always had a deep love for good design, and for good food. After pouring blood, sweat and tears into a two year remodel, Giao stepped foot into her new kitchen and never left. Her food is simple, seasonal, local and organic whenever possible. She’s transferred her passion of interior design into web design and photography –with an etsy store and web design shop in the works, so stay tuned. Until then, she chronicles her homemade culinary adventures at Kiss My Spatula.
Mowie comes from a long line of German bakers and grew up in a whirlwind of flour, sugar, and spices. He remembers falling in love with baking, seeing it as some form of alchemy, an almost magical hobby, and after my first successful attempt at an apple cake at the age of 8, he was hooked. Now Mowie bakes as often as possible always trying to use organic, fair-trade, seasonal and local ingredients whenever possible. Photography was a natural creative extension of baking. When Mowie picked up his first digital camera, everything seemed to fall into place. The blog Mowielicious was born.
