Hey there, thanks for visiting my site and considering working with me. I would love to talk to you further and figure out how we can make some deliciousness together. With that in mind, below are my stances on what sort of companies and products I would stamp with the Dinner, then Dessert stamp of approval.
Here is the meat and potatoes of this page, and a topic that is very important. I am happy to endorse products and brands which are a fit for Dinner, then Dessert. No matter how enticing your offer is, if it falls outside of the type of products I use, it just won’t work for me. I am always appreciative of offers, but processed “cheese” in a can type products won’t find their way into recipes here, sponsored or not. For any readers who are looking at this page, please feel confident in knowing you will only see an ingredient used if I would just as easily have gone to the grocery store and paid for it myself. No exceptions. It is a form of respect for you all, who keep me motivated to get better and better in the kitchen every day.
As a chef and blogger, I make new recipes every day for many different types of eaters. From babies to kids, adults to high-end dinner parties, this is one of the biggest part of my day. If your company needs a custom recipe, I would love to work with you further.
As with pretty much anything else on this site, if it is something I would go out and buy myself (I’m looking at you Chef Puck, Chef Chiarello & Chef Keller) I am happy to do a cookbook review. I will need a cookbook for my review and at least one cookbook for giveaway purposes. In order for there to be a value in it for my readers, I do require that I can post at least one recipe from the book. We can communicate further about which recipe that is, but again it would have to be something that would work for my palate and for my readers. Seriously Mr. Chiarello, want me to review your Bottega cookbook? It would make my month!
If you have a product you think my readers would enjoy, I would love to talk further. Being able to give back to readers is something I look forward to, but it does have to be both:
- A product I love/would want to use independent of your giveaway [If I have not tried it before, you may need to send me a sample].
- A product that is relevant to my readers. While I appreciate offers of gardening items, this blog is pretty dedicated to things happening in my kitchen.
If you are interested in advertising with Dinner, then Dessert send me an email and I am happy to provide you with a rate sheet and media kit.
I look forward to bringing guest bloggers to Dinner, then Dessert in the near future. If you think you are a good fit for my readers, drop me an email and we can chat about it.
To My Wonderful Readers
I will, from time to time be compensated in my partnerships with brands and products I truly LOVE. I will never accept payment or product in exchange for writing a positive review that is not an honest representation of my feelings. I will never republish press releases as my own feelings. I may refer to information provided to me by a company, but not as my opinion. Your trust is of paramount importance to me.
