It’s always great to receive an award, I feel like a movie star
I received it a few weeks ago from Steve at Oui, chef. Thanks Steve! It took me time to pass it on, but having people waiting isn’t what being a star is about?!
More seriously, it’s been a great honor to receive this award from a real Chef. If you don’t know his blog, I strongly recommend you check his awesome recipes (click here).
Getting back to the award, here are the rules:
A) List 10 honest things about yourself—and make them interesting, even if you have to dig deep!
B) Pass the award on to 7 bloggers who you feel embody the spirit of the Honest Scrap and whose blogs you find brilliant in design or content.
Let’s do this! I’ll comply with the honesty rule, please be indulgent on the « make them interesting » part
1/ It totally sounds like a cliché but let me tell you I love frog legs and occasionally eat snails too!
2/ I love experimenting when it comes to cooking but… I’m not always the wisest when it comes to combining ingredients. I definitely went too far lately with an eggplant, caramelized onions and pear soup!!…
3/ My dream job would be foodie globe trotter for a TV show. Can you imagine getting paid to travel, eat and learn cooking techniques all around the world?!… These guys are my heroes!
4/ I recently quit my job to launch a business (nope, I’m not a foodie globe trotter yet )
5/ When I was 18, I spent a year in the USA being an au pair. As a result, I would learn a lot speaking English with the kids. Believe it or not, I spent the first 3 months (until someone nice corrected me…) saying « I’m going pottie » when going to the restroom!!!
6/ I can’t sing… I wish I could, but I can’t!
7/ I had my two seconds of fame a few years back saying « Car mechanics are not my thing » in a French car manufacturer TV ad… Two seconds of fame that led to two years hearing jokes about it!
8/ I’m an avid reader, always have been. I just finished Seeing by Jose Saramago, which I enjoyed reading a lot.
9/ I’m worst than a 5 years old kid when it comes to eating candies; I can’t explain why but I love them!
10/ I had to live in Amsterdam to meet the man of my life who is actually Spanish… Who said life isn’t full of surprises?!
It’s time to pass the award on to foodbloggers whose posts and recipes inspire me a lot… And the winners are…
