Hey, guys! This is me, Natalia. It’s officially fall and I don’t know how about you, but I am ready!
Pumpkin spice latte, candles, fresh chilly moody weather vibes… through it all at me 🤪
What I also can’t wait for is to finally start filming new online courses for the Culinary Academy 🤩 If you have any suggestions for me for the new topics to teach, I am hungry for your feedback (just reply to this email with your ideas).
Here’re some videos / posts that inspired me this week:
Ok, enough for the intro. Let’s get to it already.
ON YOUTUBE - Lots of ASMR fried food (that fried orange though…💣)
ON INSTAGRAM - Unknown Asian dish (I don’t know what it is… but I want to eat it 🤤)
ON TIKTOK - #Coffee (it’ll be trending all September in preparation for the International Coffee Day in October)
ON GOOGLE - Nymble cooking robot (another attempt at a robot that can cook “just like a Chef”)
