1. Why did you start Daily Unadventures in Cooking?
Originally this site began because I was teaching myself how to cook and wanted to retain notes on what worked and didn’t work so I could learn from my mistakes and perfect my recipes. Yes, I am methodical, scientific, and anal just like that. Over time it has developed into a hobby and passion for cooking and photography.
2. Do you do product reviews?
Occasionally I do review products. However only if it is a product I am interested in, that fits with the blog and I think my readers also may be interested in. If you want to send me a product to review please contact me via email. I reserve the right to post my honest opinion on the product or nothing at all.
3. How often do you post?
I try and publish a new post on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. Unless of course I don’t feel like it. And yes, I know it is called Daily Unadventures and three times a week is hardly daily. Sue me.
4. What culinary experience do you have?
Not much, most of it is chronicled here. I have taken classes and worked at a few restaurants in the front of the house but never been trained professionally or worked in a kitchen.
5. What kind of camera and lens do you use?
I have a Nikon D40 and a 50mm f/1.8D lens. I try and use the Manual settings as much as possible. I also have a tripod and do post processing using Lightroom.
6. What are your favorite kitchen tools?
My global knives, my massive wooden cutting board, and my garage sale Le Creuset dutch oven.
7. What do you do?
I work full time in the software industry. I am a business analyst and in the last 5 years have been a developer, a team lead & a development lead. I have a Bsc of Math and Computer Science.
8. What about advertising?
I am part of the Blogher advertising network. I also am an amazon affiliate and do post product links back to their site (mostly cookbooks I endorse) where I receive a small commission if you purchase. The money from all advertising goes back into the site and to making it even better. If you would like to discuss advertising please email me.
