Today I started my internship at Bon Appetit magazine.
With three other interns, in a not-so-roomy intern room, I spent one of the busiest days of my working life. Yes, there was a lull. It was the first five minutes. Then the emails started.
Soon, I was talking to chefs from New York and San Francisco about their signature recipes, hunting through 1977 issues for long lost recipes, listening to an avid foodie talk about the benefits of parsley for 30 minutes and running to and from B&H Photo to pick up a remote timer camera for the dudes in the photo department.
All of this, whilst trying to fit in extensive research on food of all kinds to come up with story pitches.
We did manage a twenty minute lunch, albeit at 3pm, and swiping in and out of the building and magazine offices with our newly authorized badges was pretty darn amazing.
My pillow beckons (and at 11pm, will you believe?) and my eyes are closing as I write this, but all I can say is, can’t wait to wake up and do it all again! :)
