F&B MARKETING AND RESTAURANT MANAGEMENT In this assignment, I will give information about my favorite influencer, blogger , podcaster, and youtuber. Honestly, I have not listened podcasts until this assignment. I searched about them and tried afew podcasts just like: The Splendid Table , The Racist Sandwich and The Sporkful. All of these podcasts are not only about food. There are much talks about recipes and their stories. There are lots of historical , political , cultural and scientific informations about food. After listening a few episodes, I have decided that my favorite one is The Sporkful. The slogan of this show is ‘The Sporkful isn’t for foodies, it’s for eaters.’. Actually I liked the energy of the show and interesting information that they give listeners just like importance of smell. I am sure that I will contunie to listen this podcasts for years. In influencer part, I had searched my follows in Instagram. I saw that I prefered to follow hashtags more than accounts. But there are a few accounts of course that I follow. The minimalist baker and epicurians are some of them. Epicurians account includes mostly fine dining dishes. All of the posts are results of arts. The minimalist baker is an account that give easy recipes with less ingredients in a short time period. The account looks so colorful and energic. There are some suggestion post for followers for example instant pot. My favorite influencer on my social media is absolutely saltyseattle. I followed this account for years. The founder lady of this brand cooks plant-dyed pastas. They are just like supercool candies. That’s why my favorite one is saltyseattle. My favorite blogger is Damy’s kitchen. I follow her blog for a long time. First I met her with a recipe which was Focaccia 4 or 5 years ago. She is an animal lover. She has cat called eros and a dog called Bücür. She has a baby called Duru also. She decided to move a small village in South part of Turkey before birth from Istanbul. I follow her recipes and daily stories about her new life. When it comes to youtubers, my favorite one is Luke Martin. He is a traveler and discoverer of street food. He has lots of youtube videos from Turkey, Taiwan, Indonesia, Phillippines, Palestine, Japan, Korea, China, Malaysia etc. In his videos, he talks about the Street foods of that place. He tries them all and describe us. I always believe the best way to learn about food is travelling. However it is hard to travel everywhere. Therefore, I watch Luke Martin and similar travelers to learn about their experiences.
