Katie Machol SimonKatie likes talking about herself in the third person.

After a studying TV broadcasting and realizing that she had a different calling, Katie received her culinary training at the International Culinary School at the Art Institute of Tampa. Her work experience in the food industry includes the kitchens of the Renaissance Vinoy Resort in St. Petersburg, Tastings wine bar, and an internship as a food stylist at The Home Shopping Network. Prior to moving to Austin, TX, Katie would do regular cooking demos on Studio 10, a morning TV talk show in Tampa Bay. Before leaving the Tampa Bay area, she was the editor for the Food & Drink and Green Community sections of Creative Loafing Tampa, an alternative weekly newspaper and website in Tampa Bay.

Now calling Austin, TX, her new home, Katie is currently a freelance food writer and recipe developer, and a full-time cooking instructor, blending her passion for food and her media background. She is known for her experimentation in the kitchen (which usually involves a lot of spice) and re-working of recipes to put a personal spin on them.

  1. Hi there Katie!

    My name is Steve Walters and I recently started blogging at http://www.eatingbangkok.com, which is currently being updated with recipes, but in the next few months will be my vehicle for covering the food and restaurant scene in Bangkok Thailand.

    I am now in the process of meeting as many food bloggers as I can and I found your site http://culinarypirate.wordpress.com recently and was pretty impressed. I’ve added your site to my Foodie Blogs list here: http://www.eatingbangkok.com/foodie-blogs/ and would also like to add you to my blogroll.

    If you could add my site to your blogroll and write back to let me know it has been added (foodie [at] eatingbangkok.com) I will add you to mine as well and the exchange would be greatly appreciated!

    As you might imagine I am very excited to get moved to Bangkok and get started on covering the food scene there as I feel it is an area that isn’t well covered by English speaking bloggers. I plan on adding loads of great reviews, pictures and even video and will be holding contests as well. It should be fun, entertaining and informative for everyone that visits.

    Thank you so much in advance for adding me to your blogroll and I look forward to reading your posts (I’ve subscribed!) and maybe even featuring some of your own posts as I do plan on a weekly roundup of Thai themed recipes and posts from other food bloggers.

    Warm regards,

    P.S. If you are on Twitter I would love to have you as a follower and I follow back:
