Kosher Camembert is the winner of our Best of Kosher very competitive Kosher Food Blog Award.  Written by Gayle Squires also known as Zahavah.  She loves to read cookbooks as if they were novels and is always looking for the next destination.   Let's find out some more about Gayle.
1. Tell us about you and/or your company:

Kosher Camembert is a food blog that I launched about three years ago after visiting Paris and meeting Clotilde Dusoulier (Chocolate & Zucchini). What initially began as a means of keeping a recipe log has turned into an amazing outlet for creativity and learning. I have developed a voice, gained photography skills, and taken a few cooking and baking classes. While working a full-time job (health care IT), I try to post new recipes weekly. I am an untrained cook and like to to share recipes that remind me of my travels, often meeting with local chefs when abroad.

2. Why do you think you won Best of Kosher?

I suspect that my recipes and photos inspire people to turn to Kosher Camembert when looking for something to make for any time of the day, whether it's a salad for lunch, brisket for shabbat, or great cookies to share with friends and co-workers. From a practical perspective, I have friends and family all over the world and they were kind enough to ask their own communities to view my blog and vote.

3. What are your plans for the coming year?

It's always so hard to know what the future holds. I have a few projects in the works, including possibly writing a food column for an international newspaper, but it is too soon to be able to share the details.
