You’ve got questions? I’ve got answers. Don’t see what you’re looking for here? Email me at eatingniagara(at)gmail(dot)com and I’ll get back to you.
Are all the words and images on this site yours?
Yes, they are unless otherwise noted (and looking back over the years, I wish some of those images weren’t mine, but hey, I’m a writer by training, not a photographer). I occasionally feature guest posts from friends but I don’t post pre-fab editorial content from outside parties representing businesses.
Do you do product or book reviews?
I’m open to reviewing products or services, and working with organizations and brands that align with my values as an eater. They simply have to offer a good story to tell. I review cookbooks that appeal to the way I eat (I’m vegetarian, and a big fan of regional and seasonal food). As an author, I understand the importance of getting your book in front of as many eyes as possible so I do reviews as a show of support to fellow writers. I don’t accept editorial input or payment for book or product reviews.
Are you paid for the links you include in your posts?
No. I link to farms, food businesses and social organizations that I like and support personally, and that I believe may be of interest to you. None of the links are sneaky paid advertisements meant to look the part of prose but dupe readers. All sponsored posts are clearly marked and appear in the Marketplace section of this website.
Are you looking for story ideas for your podcast?
Always! I try to produce one episode every month and am always keen to find people who have a great story to tell.
Do you sell advertising space on your blog?
Are you open to freelance writing assignments or recipe development?
You bet. It’s what I do for a living. I feel comfortable writing about most topics but as you can tell, food, agriculture, and travel are my passions. I don’t have a culinary background but love to play in the kitchen and have developed recipes for clients, including the Ontario Apple Growers. I like simple flavours and using seasonal produce in the recipes I create. If that fits with what you’re after, we’ll get along just fine.
What’s the scoop on your book, Niagara Food?
Thanks for asking. All the information on my book can be found over here.
