Before we started publishing edible 10 years ago, I often wondered what exactly a Publisher did. If you have writers, photographers, designers, and salespeople, what’s left? Oh boy, did I ever have a lot to learn.
The running joke is “Are we publishing now?”
Here’s a Day-In-The-Life-Of-An-Edible-Publisher: December 6, 2017
First up, four hours on the computer and phone (too boring to share a photo.)
Notices that these flowers look like asparagus.
Picks up fresh fish at Kam Man Market in Quincy for Winter edition recipe.
Buys crab whenever the opportunity presents itself.
Ponders this product. Would our readers be interested?
Cooks crab while Paula (eSS&SC food editor) prepares the fish dish for the photo shoot.
Asks (aka pesters) Michael to do a quick photo shoot of veggies patiently biding their time, waiting for their 15-minutes of fame in a future edition.
Here’s the really hard, but oh-so-important, part: hand-to-mouth-research. Look for this recipe in our Winter 2018 edition.
Then off to our evening event: Gingerbread House decorating hosted by KAM Appliances and Montilio’s Baking. (Note to self: get cute holiday outfit and hat.)
Whew. Done ‘publishing’ for the day.
