My name’s Erika. I’m a journalism graduate who hopes to, someday, make it as a professional food and travel writer. Thing is, someday might take a while to get here.
In the meantime, I thought I’d jump on the blogging bandwagon! The Hunger Pangs is inspired by all the mornings I wake up to with waffles or pancakes on the brain, all the afternoons whiled away at work with that gnawing feeling in my stomach shouting ‘feed me’, and all the evenings spent huddled in front of my laptop, trawling through food blogs and attempting to refrain from licking my screen.
Having been raised in a city like Melbourne, I guess it would be impossible not to be crazy about food. I love hunting for, and stumbling upon, places with exciting menus whenever I’m running on empty. After investing in a mixer, I’ve discovered that baking is the logical solution to almost all of my problems. And I’m a sucker for brunch. Big time.
I do not profess to be an expert on food and am a rookie baker/photographer at best. This blog is, for the most part, a creative outlet that celebrates food, family, friends and fun through restaurant reviews, kitchen hits and misses and other bits of fluff.
I can’t wait to meet like-minded food enthusiasts, make new friends – not in a creepy way, I promise – and share ideas on what to eat next and where! Any questions, comments or recommendations are warmly welcomed. 🙂
If you’re feeling a little peckish and haven’t yet had your daily dose of Internet food porn, check me out on Tagroom – I write for their food section!
Thanks for stopping by!
