I am a sucker for an interview.
The more creative the questions are, the more delightful the conversation. “Bravo, Bravo,” I squeal inwardly as I silently applaud a question that seems to appear from left field. To me it is just as much fun to read/hear the questions as waiting for the answers. I don’t care if it is a sappy online poll, a riveting 60 Minutes interview, or someone revealing their quirky side in their twitter profile, I just love a good interview.
Perhaps that is why whenever I am approached for a podcast or an online interview, I jump on it. What kind of questions will they ask? Will I stumble with a response? Will I have any idea what they are talking about? Will I ramble on and on and on and completely forget the original question? Argh, it is like an awesome adrenaline rush! Give me more!
Slow down, Lyndi.
I was recently interviewed by Cilantro, A Cooks Shop as part of their Expert Interview program. This family owned-and-operated cookware, bakeware, and kitchenware retail store is based in Nova Scotia. Their online store is a massively awesome site that carries kitchen essentials, local artisanal Nova Scotian and Canadian made products, as well as international bakeware, cookware, and kitchenware brands. Right up our alley, right?
The interview questions were actually quite a challenge.
Breathe, Lyndi. Breathe.
I had to gulp hard and put on my big-girl pants to sensibly answer them. Questions were posed related to digital foodie tools, global cooking implements, high tech appliance design, and a general probe into what a foodie is looking for nowadays. What an adrenaline rush!
