When do you publish your online magazine version of FoodieCrush?
You can see recent issues here. The magazine is currently published bi-yearly, and features profiles of favorite food bloggers, their recipes and photography. With a point of your mouse (or flick of your finger) the flippable magazine features click-able links that take you directly to featured recipes, contributors, products, online shops, and of course—your favorite bloggers sites.
How can I contribute to FoodieCrush?
I love receiving recipes, photography, home entertaining and cooking inspiration submissions from up-and-coming food bloggers as well as seasoned pros. I’m always looking for inspiration that has seasonal appropriateness and amazing food blogs with food photography readers are inspired by. If you have a creative idea for a food story or blogger profile that you’d like to contribute to, please contact me.
How do I get a recipe—or my blog—featured on FoodieCrush?
Due to the highly visual nature of FoodieCrush, the photographic style and quality of images—in addition to a great recipe—are essential for consideration as a featured foodie blog(ger). So shoot me an e-mail with a link to your blog, flickr account or photo gallery. I’d be happy to check out your food photos.
What type of camera do you use for the pictures you take?
I use a Canon 5D Mark ii. I like that it shoots full frame and has really good video capabilities. For 90% of my food photos I use the Canon Macro EF 100mm 1:2.8L USM lens. BUT! If you don’t want to drop a pretty penny, I highly recommend the nifty fifty, Canon’s 50mm f/1.8. I shot with this lens exclusively for the first year of the blog and still use it for overhead shots or when I travel. For the price, you can’t beat it. See more of what’s in my camera bag here.
What are some of your favorite food blogs?
Oh man, that is so hard! I have a rotating list of blogs I follow at the bottom of my home page as well as a monthly list of 5 Food Blogs I’m Following Now that you can see here.
Do you review products?
Yes I do. Acceptance of your product does not guarantee we will review or write about your product.
Submitted items should be relevant to content you see on our site, so no thanks to products and services that aren’t food related or relevant to my reader’s best interests.
Do you review cookbooks?
I looove cookbooks, e-Cookbooks and I love magazines, so the answer is yes. If you have a cookbook you’ve written or one that you’ll soon be releasing, please e-mail us a book information and publication date.
Do you review restaurants?
When I’m not in the kitchen or at my computer blogging it out, I love dining out. I don’t do restaurant reviews on the blog, but if I eat something tasty, you can usually find me touting it on Instagram.
What about food + travel?
I’m big into travel and when appropriate I enjoy sharing it with readers. You can see some of my travel posts here.
Do you have any job openings?
I don’t have any full-time positions available but if you’d like to talk about contributing, collaborating or interning, I’m all ears.
How can I advertise?
I’m happy to chat with you about creative partnerships in the magazine or on the blog as long as it’s appropriate and interesting to my readers. .
I do feature some affiliate links on our site and receive a small commission from sales generated via those links.
