Mmmmm, food. Mouth-watering, yummy, delicious food. For many of us at Evernote (and many of you out there), food is much more than a necessity—it’s a hobby, a job, a fascination, a passion, and maybe even a bit of an obsession.
If you’re anything like me, then food-related thoughts enter your mind with embarrassing frequency. From recipes to restaurant reviews to gadgets to cookbooks, it seems there’s always something worth throwing into Evernote for later. Without exaggeration, Evernote is the greatest food companion I’ve ever had (sorry friends and family). As it turns out, I’m not the only one who feels this way.
Welcome to Food Month
And so begins Evernote’s Food Month, our exploration of all the many ways gastronomy and Evernote intersect. Throughout October, we will bring you user stories, videos, tips, community projects, giveaways, and tons of other great stuff all around the topic of food and Evernote.
Let’s get cooking!
We’re really excited about our first Food Month activity: seasonal recipe cooking class. We’ve enlisted the help of Laurine Wickett, chef and owner of Left Coast Catering (and Top Chef contestant) to use Evernote to put a new twist on your favorite seasonal recipes.
UPDATE: The video is up! Thanks Kanton for the recipe suggestion.
How it works
Leave a comment on this post telling us your favorite fall main and side dishes. You can either give us the name of the dish, a personal recipe, a favorite one, or link to a recipe on the web. If you provide a recipe, make sure to always give appropriate attribution.
Later in the month, Laurine will use Evernote to prepare her favorites from among the submitted dishes for a special video segment.
Lots more to come
Stay tuned for tons of great ideas on how to use Evernote to turn your notable world into an edible one.
