Daily Texan on Austin Food Bloggers
I was honored when a writer for the Daily Texan, the student newspaper for the University of Texas, contacted me for a story they were doing on local food bloggers. The story ran yesterday in Longhorn Life, an “Advertising Supplement of the Daily Texan.” Not sure how Tasty Touring and Rebeccamendations ended up in there since we didn’t pay for the articles but I’m not going to complain!
Read on for our mind-blowing insights about Austin’s best cuisine, favorite dish (I don’t actually have one but picked a past obsession), favorite thing eaten from a trailer, place to take out of town friends, best romantic atmosphere, and group happy hour.
After checking out the article, I’m very thankful they let me send them a photo that I like (thanks to Adam H. for taking it at the Tasty Up tour). While Kate sent me questions for the Q&A over e-mail, we didn’t have a formal interview so I’m guessing she pulled the information in the article from my blog which might have been misleading. A couple corrections just for fun (and for records sake):
- While originally from Canada (and proud of it), I actually moved to Austin from New York City in 2003. Before that, I lived in Maryland, Michigan, Spain, Maryland, Montreal, and Ottawa (in that order backtracking).
- I can’t confirm or deny that the most viewed feature on my blog is Tasty Tuesdays. With Google searches and SEO, that’s probably true. The sad part is that I haven’t posted a Tasty Tuesday since October 2009. I better get on that again. If you have suggestions for future Tasty Tuesdays, let me know in the comments!
It’s true that I tend to cover trailers and dives more than the fancier restaurants in town — but not without exception of course! I’m up for covering any spot where the food is made with love.
Kate did her homework and didn’t list the weekly food show on KGSR that ended in Dec. 2009. Shout out to Andy and Bryan who gave me that awesome opportunity — I miss you guys! If any readers hear about a local radio or TV station that wants to do a regular food segment, feel free to name drop. I’ll take you out for dinner if it works out!Tags: adam, canada, daily texan, food blogger, kgsr, rebeccamendations, Tasty Up
