In PR, attention to detail is key. Everyone seems to organize themselves differently though -- some do so with email folders, others with to do lists. Personally, I love spreadsheets. That is until I tried to organize my all consuming obsession with food.
Organizing my thoughts around meals, from imagining my next dining experience to keeping track of the newest restaurants, isn’t easily accomplished with spreadsheets. Recently, however, I made a discovery that changed the way I wield my passion for food. A feature of the amazing Evernote app, which is a tool designed for note-taking and archiving notes (whether that’s a to-do list, a website, a picture or a voice memo), Evernote Food, has solved my food manifesto fears. Let me tell you why.
It helps you remember food you love: I can take snapshots of my delicious fried pork cheek and stone fruit appetizer (yes, I ate that). And along with a picture of my corn pappardelle with gypsy peppers and foraged mushrooms entree (yep, I ate that too!), I can add personal notes on the ambiance of the restaurant, who I enjoyed the meal with, or if I’m lucky (a foodie can dream) the chef’s personal compliments.
You can keep your recipes in one convenient location: whether you’re at a dinner party and need to jot down the name of that extra special Valle de Sol Ancho Chile Powder the hostess used in her homemade enchiladas, or at happy hour and want to savor the memory of cocktails with your co-workers, Evernote Food makes it easy. Since you can access the app online and on your mobile phone, there is no need to go back and forth between separate lists -- you can keep your foodie finds and facts in one place!
You can also find restaurants nearby to satisfy the curiosity of your taste buds. With the help of Foursquare, Evernote Food allows you to use map view to save places next to your home or office that you want to try.
Thanks to the app, I’ve enjoyed countless meals and memories of fun times with friends. Below are some of the meals I’ve saved on the Evernote Food app, and I’m already drooling thinking about my next one. If you’re a foodie like me, check out the Evernote food app for yourself!!
