Surprise, surprise, TFAL talks about their favorite subject – FOOD – in this episode! Specifically food criticism. The team talks about the rise of Yelp reviews to which one of us wanted to be a food critic? Could you guess who that might be? If you suspect a TFAL food appreciator, you might be correct!

In this episode, the team talks story with Annabelle Tometich, a Florida based writer who revealed that they wrote under the pen name of the long established food critic Jean Le Beouf for The News Press and Naples Daily News. Annabelle shared her story in The Washington Post with the Opinion piece “What pretending to be a White guy taught me about privilege.” The conversation covers Annabelle’s journey from line cook to food writer and everything in between.

    Hi guys! I have a suggestion since Elaine hinted with ‘If someone knows how to make books happen…’. My suggestion is to write the book with a fountain pen in neat handwriting, because that writing process allows for reflection and more ‘straight-to-the-point’ storytelling. On a PC writing seems to get longer than neccessary, and then you also have to edit. Writing neatly with pen and paper is a process we learned in school for good reason!

    Warm greetings,
