Guest posting is a natural phase of food blogging because that’s what the community is all about … sharing.
It’s an honor to be asked to imprint your work on someone’s blog because it’s their way of saying “I like what you do and I’d like to introduce my readers to you.” By accepting the offer, it’s your way of saying “ditto, right back at ya“.
Laz (lower left) and I have a little bit of history. I’ve followed his blog for a while now and about 3 months ago I became a member of the 5 Star Culinary Makeover Cooking Group which he co-hosts … then, we met in person for a 3-hour fab tasting lunch in Miami … and, now, we’re collaborating as teammates for our next cooking club challenge. But, it’s hush-hush and I can’t tell you anything about that … yet.
When I visit Laz’s blog, I laugh at his irreverent bad boy language and admire his sophisticated (even delicate) artistic plating. So when he asked me to guest post, I knew I wanted to try to do something ‘al estilo Lazaro‘. I hope he likes this.
And while you’re there, take a look around at some of his work. He does things like this very inspired remake of bacon + eggs which he made for a cooking club challenge.
Laz is also a big fan of fish and frequently posts dishes like this olive oil-poached barramundi with insalata caprese.
