We’re back with another edition of Meet The Foodie. One day I am going to interview these people in person for a video or podcast episode if I can find the time. Until then read up on Derek Timm of popular local food blog Bluejeanfood.com.
Launching “Small Bites with Scott Macom and Derek Timm of Bluejeanfood.com”. It’s an innovative, captivating, and funny new program airing live Sundays from 6:35 PM to 7:35 PM on Wildfire Radio. This show is about food, beverages, travel, nightlife, and all topics related to the hospitality industry.
When did you start being an active online foodie?
Around 2011 when my wife started the website for me since she thought people should hear directly from me.
What do you like best about being a foodie?
Every meal is like a photograph in my mind to me. I equate food with memories, whether good or bad.
What platforms do you use?
Radio show, Blog, Facebook, Twitter.
How do you promote your work?
What is your favorite “foodie” or food blogging experience so far?
Meeting chefs and everyone in the industry.
What are your favorite cuisines/meals/recipes?
What are your favorite Philly area restaurants?
Too many to name. I always say to anyone that asks me what is the best place to eat, my reply is always it depends what you are craving at that exact moment. If I am craving sushi and someone gives me a cheesesteak, I don’t care how good that cheesesteak was, it was sushi I was thinking about.
Who are your favorite Philly area chefs or food business personalities?
All of the media professionals. Michael Klein, Craig LaBan, Drew Lazor, Danya Henninger, Adam Erace, Brian Freedman, etc. Anytime someone says to me they love my stuff or only read my blog, it feels like a slap in the face to all these hard working individuals who are much more talented than I’ll ever be.
How often do you go out to eat at Philly area restaurants?
As often as I can, usually twice a week
How often do you cook at home?
Several times per week.
What are your favorite stores/shops/markets to shop for food products?
Aldi – my son loves it there
Any Farmer’s Market
