I wish to offer you a mandate to write, create recipes, direct a photo shoot, etc.
You’re in the right place then! This blog is a personal tribune for me to write on topics that interest me most. That said, most of my time is spent as a professional food and ad writer with over 20 years experience. To find out more, just click here. You can also write me to explain your projects or your needs.
If you don’t find the answer to your query below, feel free to write me by filling out the contact form. Thank you.
I write for a newspaper, magazine, online community or other. Can I interview you on the subject of cooking, terroir or other?
Gladly. Please send me your interview request here by filling out the contact form here.
I’d like to advertise on FrancoFoodie, how does it work?
First of all, thanks for your interest! I’ve refused advertising and sponsorship requests for a long time, because FrancoFoodie’s my personal blog and playground so to speak. I also want(ed) to avoid conflicts of interest given my role as a magazine columnist. Plus, as a food/advertising writer, I work for multiple food brands…
For all of these reasons, it’s best to write me to outline your project proposal. A media kit is also available upon request.
I’d like to send you a product for you to try/review.
I’m always looking for new products and services to talk about, on this blog or elsewhere in the mediasphere. If you think your product would be of interest to my readers, write me .
Important: The fact that I agree to consider your product doesn’t represent a guarantee of publication. I receive multiple products each more interesting than the last and I have to make choices, often difficult ones. Also, this blog’s my personal tribune to share my very favourite products and ideas. I don’t diss. If I don’t like your products, I simply won’t talk about it. If I like it but it doesn’t jive with my interests for one reason or another (or because there’s too much going on!), then I’ll let you know.
If I like your product and decide to write about it, I’ll disclose that I received free samples or gratuities, for the sake of transparency.
At all times, don’t forget that you can simply advertise your product or service on this blog, if it’s of interest to my readership. To do wo, write me with your project outline. A media kit is also available upon request.
Can I sponsor a post on your blog?
I’m open to publishing a sponsored post if I think your product or service follows my editorial line, is of interest to my readers who would benefit from discovering it. Sponsored posts are written by me, in my personal style, based on discussions with your team. I do not accept third-party posts. Sponsored posts are given significant visibility through the scrolling banner on the home page, plus a link to the product or sponsor website. Write me with your project outline. A media kit is available upon request.
Do you sometimes write for other blogs or media?
I accept the occasional remunerated mandate as a third-party blogger or columnist. If you’d like to discuss such a collaboration or wish to receive my media kit with rate card, write me here.
Do you speak at events such as professional tradeshows, seminars etc.?
Yes, sometimes, although my busy schedule doesn’t allow for it as much as I’d like. For example, in the past year, I took part in a round table on food writing at MagNet, the professional show for the Canadian Magazine Association in Toronto — the program is here. I’ve also presented a conference on the history of Québec cookbooks (my passion!) at the Saint-Hyacinthe Book Show etc. etc. Write me about your event, who knows…
