Even more things you may or may not like to know:
We live and eat in Washington, D.C., where Zach is a journalist and Clay works for a nonprofit. We got married in 2010. There are a few interviews with us online, including one from Gourmet Live and another from Washingtonian Magazine. A few more recent interviews are up on Front & Main and the PBS Food Blog.
We've been blogging since 2008. We started the blog as part of new years resolution after being inspired by this post on Serious Eats. We resolved to start putting our food magazines to work, cooking at least one recipe from each magazine. Our current stable of magazines includes Bon Appétit, Cook's Country, Cook's Illustrated, Everyday Food, Food & Wine, Fine Cooking, Food Network Magazine, Martha Stewart Living and Saveur. On occassion, recipes from other magazines sneak in, too.
Yes, we still miss Gourmet. Thinking about it makes us feel like we need a hug.
Some people like us! We've been terribly flattered by praise the blog has been given by others. The Bitten Word was named in 2009 by The London Times as "one of 50 of the world's best food blogs." It's also been featured as a Saveur.com "Best of the Web" and on Tastespotting.com (which is actually a really interesting way to view our archive). We've also been featured in the Washington Post and in Molly O'Neill's book, One Big Table.
We love you! Seriously, the best part of blogging is hearing from readers. Email us if you ever have a question about anything, or there's a particular dish you'd like to see us try, or if you just want to chat about Mad Men or something.
We love when you use our photos! Just ask us first.
