Featured #IFBC18 Blogger – Amanda Katili Niode

Omar Niode Foundation – Agriculture, Food and Culinary Arts
When did you first start blogging?
What inspired you to become a food blogger?
I read many impressive food blogs and thought “I could do this too.”
What do you view as your greatest achievement to-date as a food blogger?
A book that I edited, “Trailing the Taste of Gorontalo,” which won Best in the World at the Gourmand World Cookbook Awards 2016 for Asian Cuisine in the Asian Books category.
What’s your favorite recipe?
Binthe Biluhuta Gorontalo, a traditional corn soup made from corn kernel, shredded coconut, basil leaves, salt, lime juice and shrimp. You can use tofu instead of shrimp, for vegetarian option.
As a food blogger, do you have any mentors or sources of inspiration?
My source of inspiration is Dianne Jacob, the author of “Will Write for Food” since she graciously and constantly shares tips on all you wanted to know about food writing.
What would you tell those just starting to blog or thinking about blogging?
Read a lot of how-to articles and attend IFBCs.
As an IFBC alum, what’s your favorite IFBC memory?
I attended IFBC 2012 in Portland and IFBC 2017 in Sacramento. Always excited about the live blogging and the swag table.
