Meeting Deb Perelman of Smitten Kitchen

How does she do it? That’s what I wanted to know! Deb Perelman of Smitten Kitchen talked about her successful food blog at the Apple Store on 14th Street in Manhattan. In her slide show she showed us a picture of her New York kitchen. It is actually smaller than the Teeny Tiny Kitchen. And she puts out a food blog from that tiny kitchen. Now, that’s awesome. So what’s her secret? There isn’t any. She talked about blogging, commenting, cooking, parenting, and writing a cookbook, but all comes down to good writing. Like Dianne Jacob in Will Write for Food she recommends Anne Lamott’s Bird by Bird. I read it about 5 years ago the summer I started writing my dissertation proposal. I thought it lyrical and wise, a book about life and writing about life. That’s just what food blogging is all about too.
