Some of you may have spotted something shiny and new in your inbox this morning – Issue#01 of the JENIUS Newsletter!
JENIUS Newsletter

Editor’s Letter:

JENIUS has grown so much since its humble beginnings in 2006 and it really excites me that I am able to launch this monthly e-newsletter which will be a delicious extension of the JENIUS you so often read. Here you can expect to find an overview of stories which you may have missed; ideas on seasonal produce to try; a Q&A section showcasing some popular questions which are directed our way, a re-cap of where we’ve been eating whether it is a favourite from the JENIUS archives or a new eat worth the drive to.

This month was dedicated to ‘Indulgence on a Budget’ because I believe that regular indulgence is necessary and it doesn’t have to be costly. While I adore being pampered at a day spa or fine dining at one of Sydney’s best, nothing is more uplifting than a bit of weekday romance or a long Sunday picnic. You can find these tips and more in our Fresh Stories section. I also had a chance to speak with the marvelous Tomislav Martinovic who is of course the chef/owner of hot new bistro, Tomislav.

All in all, I truly hope you enjoy this first issue and join me again at the next.

Love, Jen 🙂

Jennifer is the founding blogger of I Ate My Way Through (originally, Jenius.com.au). Growing up in the multicultural melting pot of Sydney’s Inner West as a second generation Australian (of Vietnamese refugee parents of Teochew Chinese ancestry), Jen has always had a deep curiosity about global cuisines, culinary heritage and the cultural assimilation of immigrants. For Jen and her family, food is always at the centre of all celebrations, life events and milestones. A lover of the finer things in life, as well as cheap eats, her blogging ethos is all about empowering and inspiring people to expand their culinary repertoire. When not running her two companies (she is also the Managing Director of The Bamboo Garden online marketing agency), Jen can be found exploring old-world charms at vintage markets and delving into local eats around the world. She has a weakness for fried chicken.

    Thanks Simon! Funny you should say that because I never feel like I have enough time to do everything I want to do or to eat everything I want to eat!
    I write lists and lots of them. I have to-do lists on notepads, whiteboards, post-it notes, organisers, on the back of envelopes, you name it. So the newsletter was just lots of little steps which has come nicely together *phew*
    With that said, blogging isn’t my full time job. I’m still sticking to my advertising background with consulting gigs and running a boutique agency which i’ve co-founded. I’ve picked up more freelance food writing work along the way too and food blogging just falls inbetween everything 🙂

  • I like the graphic design on your newsletter it looks very professional.
