I’d love to hear from you: admin @ polyvoracious . com
Q: What do PR folks need to know about you?
A: I will happily try out products from companies with ethical business and supplier practices, preferably local to the Pacific Northwest. I will not review products containing GMOs. If I like the product and believe that my readers would benefit from knowing about it, I will write a post about it. Also, I am not a mom, so kid-oriented products aren’t relevant for me. Please feel free to contact me with any questions at the email above.
Q: What do you cook?
A: I cook anything that requires fewer than 200 steps and doesn’t need extremely special equipment. I enjoy trying out new recipes and inventing new and modified dishes. I cook almost every day so oftentimes I post what I’ve just made. I gravitate towards whatever’s in season since we grow a bunch of our own food, especially during the summer. We also have chickens, so we eat lots of eggs–those eggs take baking to a whole new level, so I’ve been playing around with baking even though I don’t have enough patience to call myself a baker. New Mexican food holds a special place in my heart so I like to experiment with green and red chile. Seattle has the best seafood in the world, so I do a lot of fish and shellfish too. I love discovering great vegetarian dishes as we’ve made a focused effort to eat less (and mainly humanely raised, grass fed) meat due to environmental, health and animal welfare concerns.
Q: Why do you cook?
A: Simply put, I love good food. I think about food all the time. Those people who look forward to taking pill to cover every nutritional need rather than eat real meals? They’re out there, and I sooo don’t get them. I love to share recipes, I love trying out new things, and I love it when friends and family gather to enjoy a good meal. I am especially thrilled when someone makes something I’ve posted or suggested, and is happy with the results. Magical things happen when people have full, happy bellies. I also believe in knowing how to feed myself, and the cooking process is meditative for me.
Q: I know it’s a difficult question to answer, especially for food nerds such as yourself, but what is your favorite food?
A: I could eat Dungeness Crab every single day.
