The Princess Gourmet

ABOUT THIS BLOG

I’ve been taking photos of food way before Facebook and other social media. When I finally bit the bullet and joined Facebook back in the summer of 2008, I began posting photos of food and writing short captions to describe my photos. A few friends suggested that I start writing a blog but I dismissed that idea–I had no time to devote to a blog, or so I thought. I began to realize that it takes just as much time and effort to select photos, upload them on to Facebook and then write the captions that go along with each photo. In essence, I was already writing a blog…sort of. So one day, out of sheer boredom, I decided to meet the challenge head on and start a blog. But what to call it? I toyed with many names and settled on The Princess Gourmet. There really isn’t any meaning behind it. I thought it was eye-catching and might elicit enough curiosity for potential readers to explore my site. It fits my girly personality.

I wanted to come up with a focus or culinary point of view for my blog. I do like to cook but I also love to eat out more (eating out more won out) but who says it has to be one or the other? This blog is about simply about food–whether I prepare it at home, if I’m dining out, attending a food-related event, visiting a gourmet food truck, or experiencing the local cuisines of places that I’ve traveled to. It’s simply about food.

If you decide to check out any of the restaurants or gourmet food trucks mentioned in my blog, please let me know by dropping me a line. Or, if you have a favorite you’d like to share, I’d love to hear about it and perhaps experience it–depending on what it is, of course!

ABOUT ME

I’m a Los Angeles-based foodie whose only criteria when it comes to food is that it’s well prepared, flavorful, pleasing to the eye and most importantly, pleasing to the palate. Whether it’s a hole in the wall, a food truck or a 5-start restaurant, it really doesn’t matter. It just has to be good!

This blog was meant to be my own food diary but it’s now taken a life of its own. I’ve met so many amazing people who are just as passionate about their love for food and am honored to be a part of the food blog world.

Bon appetit!

  1. Hey there,

    Nice review of Bleecker Street! After reading your review, I’m thinking you could actually win an award for it. Yes, seriously ^_~ . There’s a new award for the best reviews online being presented by Lunch.com (a site where people can share reviews on any topic). Lunch is recognizing the best reviews across a plethora of topics, and your restaurant reviews are fantastic — I think you stand a great shot of getting nominated and winning a “Golden Thumb” trophy! I work for Lunch, searching for the best reviews and reviewers online, so when I came across yours, it was a great fit.

    All the info about nominations and voting are on the Lunch Awards page (lunch.com/t/9), and any review written in 2010 is eligible (no matter where it was originally posted). If you know anybody else who is sharing amazing reviews online, they are welcome to post them on Lunch to be submitted as well. There are categories for best reviews of businesses, movies, books, products, hotels, video games – you name it!

    Really hope you submit your reviews for this year’s Lunch Awards! Plus, the “Golden Thumb” trophy is being produced by the same company who makes the Academy Oscar Awards! When you come on the site, follow me at lunch.com/zephyr2050 so I can be sure to also nominate your review.

    Good Luck!
