few years back, all of us elderly ladies and gents who were blogging for
a while were suddenly surprised (and delighted) at a group of young ‘uns,
in their teenage years, who up and started food blogs. And let me tell
you, it’s really nice to see young people doing something worthwhile with
their time — like cooking and baking, for example.
introduction to them came when I was in an elevator at a food blogging
conference and found myself surrounded by 17-year olds when the door
closed and we all introduced ourselves. One of them was Kamran Siddiqi,
who created a beautiful blog, The
Sophisticated Gourmet, then went on to write and photograph
his own book, Hand Made
Baking. I don’t know about you, but when I was seventeen, the
last thing I wanted to do was be trapped in an elevator with some
tired-looking man, who looked like he just got off a five thousand mile
flight. Which I had.
