Did you know that CbusFoodBloggers consists of over 50 different bloggers/instagrammers? Some of us you may already
stalk follow, and others you haven’t yet had the chance to meet! In an effort to help our readers get to know us and the bloggers behind our group, we conduct monthly interview highlighting one of our members. This month, we have Daniel Moroyoqui from This is my take!
- How did you become a food blogger? What is the theme of your blog/IG?
Almost 13 years ago I was diagnosed with Juvenile Rheumatoid Arthritis which a few years later evolved to Rheumatoid Arthritis and yes, that was a life changing fact for me, but I won’t bore you with all the details, the important thing is that as of today I have never been stronger, healthier and happier in my entire existence! Well, that condition took me to a place where I needed to be more conscious of what put into my body and there´s where my journey began.
“This is my take” is a place where I share my own version of some of my favorite dishes but with an interesting and pleasant healthy (sometimes healthyish) twist. Breakfast, entries, dinner, juicing, bread, pasta, desserts? I’ll do it all!
A year ago, I also entered the YouTube world launching with my own channel, which is also focused in recipes but also some hotel reviews and some other travel topics.
- What is your favorite thing to cook for yourself or others?
Since I’ve been in a bread journey for the last few months, I think bread for others. And for me, I’d say nothing beats some shiitakes, carbonara sauce, a short pasta and a glass of wine in a weekday afternoon.
- What makes the Columbus food scene great? Or what would you change?
I moved to Columbus from Phoenix, Arizona just a few months ago! So, I can’t wait to get to know the city and the food scene! Which I can tell is huge!
- What restaurant(s) is at the top of your “must try” list?
I was recently in México city and had the opportunity and the luck to book a table at Pujol (by Enrique Olvera). This has been ranked amongst Top 50 restaurants in the world for a few years in a row. If you ever visit Mexico for vacation or work, I strongly recommend this place. Being from México, this place really makes justice to our ingredients and culture. You can read more about my experience in my latest blog post at www.thisismytake.com
- What’s (and where) the most memorable meal/dish you had recently?
This might sound weird, but I recently tried a soup made out of small stones! Yes, rocks! It’s called “Caldo de Rocas” (literally Rock Soup), the rocks are heated to over 500 degrees and are put into a plate to cook some seafood and vegetables to get a stew effect. This soup is cooked almost instantly. Definitely an interesting dish to try.
- Give us the inside scoop — what’s your favorite happy hour, hole in the wall, or hidden gem in Columbus?
My favorite happy hour in town definitely goes to The Rossi-Bar and Kitchen. They make mean spritzes and their fish taco and lamb lollipops are to-die-for! You can also read more about this place in my blog!
- What is your favorite locally made food product?
Is anyone else also a spice freak like me? I’m obsessed with North Market Spices.
- Some of us are not full-time bloggers. If you are not, what is your “real” job?
I’m a Project Manager and a Business Analyst at an IT Company. Love my job!
- Tell us an interesting fact about yourself!
I’m absolutely not ashamed about this but… I can probably eat 24 oysters, for lunch.
And just to get this out of the way: I’m a Potterhead! Ravenclaw by heart.
