Good Eats Wednesday

Foodie News
& Dream Jobs



Ego Anton, the Food Critic from Disney's Ratatouille.

I am extremely excited to announce that I will be the new Fort Lauderdale Ethnic Foods Restaurant Reviewer for Examiner.com. I have been wanting to write about food and review restaurants ever since I obtained my degree in magazine journalism. I can now dig out my dusty book Will Write for Food by Dianne Jacob, which I bought upon graduation.

Will Write for Food: The Complete Guide to Writing Cookbooks, Restaurant Reviews, Articles, Memoir, Fiction and More


I 've always been known as a dreamer, but with patience and preserverance, things sometimes do work out.

Here is another example... in kindergarten when told to draw what I wanted to be when I grew up... I drew a Disneyland worker. Sure enough when I was in college, I applied to work for the summer at Disney World in their college program, and even though I humbly served Pineapple Dole Whip, or eggrolls in Adventureland (depending on the day), I fulfilled my dream. It wasn't until my mom pulled out that old drawing that I remembered what I once wanted. While my experience at Disney was nowhere near what a child would dream, with the minimal pay and laborous schedule, it's the fact that I had achieved one of my dreams, learned a tremendous lesson about finances, and it led to me to where I am today... currently living in South Florida.


Modern Replica.
Don't Laugh.
I'm not sure if that's Mickey Mouse, or the Easter Bunny.
I think I did a better job drawing when I was 5.


So brace yourselves,
I will be sharing my future reviews with you.
Thanks to Mel @ Reverie-Daydream,

Bon appetit!
