I am: Rebecca Coleman, Vancouver, BC.
In my other life I: help artists, not-for-profits and small business to leverage social media to market their businesses. I am a freelance publicist, instructor of Social Media for Business at BCIT, and mom to Michael, the world’s greatest 9-yr-old.
Why I started this blog: I’ve been blogging for 5 years over at rebeccacoleman.ca. It’s a marketing blog for my business, but I wanted to write a blog that was just for fun. I love to cook, and own tons of cookbooks, but over the years, I’ve noticed I’m cooking more and more from my laptop. I also blog about eating out on a restrictive diet over at Vancity Buzz.
My philosophy: for me, cooking is creative expression, and it’s something I do for the people I love. The things I value most: travel, exploring, creativity, experiencing new things, friends and family–these all come together in the world of food for me.
My favorite food: Impossible to choose. I can’t go a day without coffee. I eat sushi several times a week. Vancouver is great for yummy, cheap sushi. Croissants. If creme brulee is on the menu, I will order it. A & W Onion rings. Chocolate.
I will NOT eat: Kombacha (I know, it’s a drink but it’s disgusting). Brussels sprouts. Bugs. I don’t generally eat meat, but stick primarily to a vegetarian/pesatarian diet.
Favorite kitchen tool: My knife. I even wrote a love letter to it.
