I’ve been looking forward to writing this post for almost 5 months now—the post where I can finally share with you that I’ve launched a business called Wooden Spoon Studio!
When I started blogging here in this space, my goals were to share my love of food and cooking, and to figure out a way to channel that love into a career. I was unhappily training to become an architect and I desperately wanted to break out and do what I loved.
I didn’t know where I’d end up, so I hustled like crazy, hoping something would stick. I did catering, freelance writing—went to food festivals, networking events—even quit my career in architecture to pursue my undefined food career full-time.
Eventually I got to know a network of fellow food and beverage lovers—farmers, makers, writers, bartenders, cooks—all intent on turning their love into a career, just like me. I started getting hired to shoot photos, write recipes and do design work—and the rest, as they say, is history.
Since January, I have fully turned my focus to building Wooden Spoon Studio. In addition to serving food and beverage businesses with content, we will also be serving home cooks with recipes, stories, good design and eventually, cookbooks. We’ll have a new blog that will feature a variety of voices, recipes, and articles about the food world, and I can’t wait to get that all started!
I’ll slowly be migrating the stories and recipes here to Wooden Spoon Studio’s blog, after which I will be closing down What’s in Season with Des for good. It was a difficult decision to make, but a crucial one in wanting you to hear from a wider range of passionate cooks and writers.
I’m sure this is all a lot, but I do hope you’ll follow along on this new and exciting journey. It’s been so much fun sharing and growing with you, and I can’t wait to see what’s next!
Lots of love,
