It’s been a while since our last post, and although the writing has become less frequent, the presence of great food in our lives is constant. Want proof? Just follow my personal account on Instagram!
But can I be honest for just a moment? It’s no secret that I am now working in a professional kitchen, and I have to admit that, in my line of work, I don’t openly advertise that I am a food blogger. I made the “mistake” of mentioning it once and was immediately barraged by rants about the food blog scene as a whole and its double-edged effects on the restaurant industry. So, in all honesty, it’s been difficult to motivate myself to sit down and write.
I love food and I love people who love food. Julia Child once said, “People who love to eat are always the best people” and I wholeheartedly agree. Sadly, gone is the era of the prestigious food writers and critics whose insightful articles were respected the world over; now it is all about smartphone-wielding online reviewers and everyone seems to have an opinion… often not the most educated or informed one.
No one has summed up my feelings about online review sites better than Anton Ego from the Pixar film Ratatouille.
Luckily, the purpose of Nom Nom Cat has always been simply to share our love for food, by inviting you to visit our favorite local restaurants or by inspiring you to try our moms’ classic recipes in your own kitchens. I enjoy writing about food, with no pretension, no judgment, and I hope to continue providing content of which we can all be proud.
Thanks for letting me rant, and stay tuned for some new posts coming soon!
