People always ask me where I get my inspiration from when I’m cooking or baking. OK, well maybe not ALWAYS (fine, I got asked it once by my friend Shila ) but it’s an interesting question that I always wonder about other food bloggers. Do they bounce around to other food blogs to get inspiration or do they leave their computer/iPad/iPhone and get to experience the real world with all that it has to offer? I know that whenever I feel stagnant in the kitchen (how can I come up with a different take on a cookie recipe?) I take a walk around my neighborhood or run over to my local grocery store where inspirations is bound to hit me in the face. So when I was challenged by Alexia Foods for their “ Reinvent a Classic ” project to come up with a new flavor of French fry for them, I started to think about all the great cuisines from around the world. Potatoes are such a great blank canvas for flavors and I wanted to see how far I could push the envelope while still keeping the fries approachable.
