Celebrating 10 Years of Food Hunting With A Giveaway!

By: The Food Hunter

I can't believe it's been 10 years already; boy how time flies when you are doing something you love. My motivation for starting this blog was to share my trials and tribulations on locating hard to find ingredients in Phoenix. Back then it was not uncommon for me to drive 30-45 minutes to purchase everything that was needed to put together a meal. Something I wasn't accustomed to, having lived on the east coast. One night over pizza and wine, a friend suggested I should start a blog to help others who might also be "hunting" for hard to find ingredients. And that's how the Food Hunter's Guide to Cuisine was born.

It's interesting to look back at my earlier posts, some of which didn't include recipes or photos, and see just how far the site has come. As I mentioned my focus when I started was locating hard to find food items in the Phoenix area, but since then my blog has expanded to "food hunting" all over the globe; from NYC, to California to Northern Italy.

The Food Hunter's Guide to Cuisine not only gave me an outlet to voice my opinions about food,  products and ingredients but also allowed me to develop my culinary skills and meet some wonderful people along the way. Over the years I’ve created recipes for cookware companies, grocery chains and local food growers. I've also had the opportunity to test many new and innovative products in order to share my findings with all of you.

Being able to share my passion for quality food and products with all of you is what inspires me to continue writing each and everyday. I want to give a big Thank You to everyone that has ever made one of my recipes or even thought about it; anyone that has read my restaurant/hotel reviews and/or considered my opinion when picking out new kitchen products! As a way to demonstrate my gratefulness I am giving away a beautiful 12 inch dual handle Lodge Cast Iron Pan.

Lodge is a family owned company that has been making cookware in the U.S. since 1896. I love cooking with cast iron and hope you will too! See contest below.

  41. We have a cast iron skillet that we rarely used because things always stuck, but once we properly seasoned it, we use it once a week at least.
