Ever since I “started” my foodie-journey on a hotel bed in Boston back in 2013, I’ve been fortunate enough to have worked under two great blogs, Eater Chicago and The Chicago Chic. During that time, I’ve learned how to (properly) write, how to network with the hospitality industry, how to stay “on-top” of the food news, but most importantly, how to enjoy and enhance my craft of critiquing.
I remember a friend told me one day while we were enjoying a meal that I had become a “food snob.” Not even realizing it, my experiences had made my palate (dare I say) sophisticated. By going to enough restaurant openings, writing handfuls of articles, and even reading up on the basic dishes/cocktails, I’ve realized that I truly enjoy critiquing my experiences.Although I don’t have an education in the culinary world (see about me section) and growing up in a middle class household on the Southside, one thing that I do excel at in my everyday life is telling it like it is. Even at my corporate job, I try to be as honest and as fair as possible; taking all aspects and origins into account. I use this same tactic whenever I dine out. Letting the dishes, cocktails, ambiance, and service dictate my as experiences.
As I continue to journey through my “double life” and get to try new experiences, I hope I can translate through my words and my pictures some insight, recommendations, or even a laugh.
Looking forward to getting to know you all and I hope you enjoy this as much as I will 🙂
