food friends…

Lately I have not been a very good food friend: no posts to the blog, no sharing of delicious creations, plus I’ve really kept you in the dark with what’s going on inside the yellow bungalow. All of that is about to change.

To make it up to you, I’d like to introduce you to some new food friends I’ve been hanging out with recently. They have a very cool nickname: tastemakers.

The tastemakers are part of an online community for people who love food, called Tastemade. In fact, Tastemade’s motto is “connecting the world through food,” which I happen to think is a pretty good mission.

I was introduced to Tastemade earlier this year, and have been working with them on and off ever since. Tastemade started out as a channel on Youtube, but they’re so much more than that. This summer they launched an app and have also been hosting cool food events & competitions in Los Angeles and beyond. I think they may be on a path to change the way the world thinks about food.

No biggie.

One Tastemade series that is particularly near and dear is called “Thirsty For,” which is a video collection of drink recipes. It was created by a guy named Eric Slatkin, a tastemaker with an incurable curiosity of food and an eye to make it all look beautiful. I was lucky enough to work on a couple of these videos with Eric, and I’d like to share the first one with you today. In fact, it was filmed at the bungalow, so you can get a peek at what things look like on the inside!

I hope you’ll pour yourself a cup of tea, grab a sweet treat, and spend some time familiarizing yourself with what is going on over at Tastemade. There is a lot of cool stuff happening – shows about cooking, eating, & traveling, or some combo! – and this only the delicious beginning!
