Walkley talkie



Foodblogging looks like the latest hot topic doing the media rounds. And too right, for what could be more newsworthy than food?

Grab Your Fork scores in a mention in the latest edition of The Walkley Magazine, the media industry mag produced by the Media, Entertainment and Arts Alliance of Australia.

The bulk of the article centres on interviews with Anthony from Spiceblog and Sean from Sydney Food Diary, who discuss their own blogs and motives against the growth of foodblogs in Australia in general.

Journalist Trevor Cook also adds:

Another Sydney-based food blog that already provides some coverage in these areas, as well as restaurant reviews, is Grab Your Fork http://grabyourfork.blogspot.com/). Like Sydney Food Diary, this site also has heaps of photos of plates of food. You can't help thinking that the waiters must wonder what is going on with these people.
I like to think they smile with amused resignation as the geek on table three takes infinite shots of the meal they've just delivered.

With all this media coverage of late, next thing you know I'll be on Big Blogger =)

    Hi Reid - Tnanks =) When it rains, it pours right?

    Hi m-h - Cuban Chinese? Sounds bizarre. I actually spotted a Hispanic Asian grocery in Little Italy but didn't get a chance to check it out. Next time I'm in the area...

    Hi Saffron - Thanks, and yes, I'm looking forward to seeing the article too!

    Hi Trevor - Next time definitely! I will have to check my emails more often!

    Thanks for the link and thanks for all your efforts in publicising Australian foodbloggers.
