Hello! We are Angela and Mark and welcome to our foodie adventures here on Cooking with Wine. In this blog we share our passion about all things food including our original recipes, wine pairings, cooking tips, recreating our favorite dishes from our travels, and finding creative ways to incorporate unique ingredients into our meals. We find happiness in this journey, and strive to discover our next favorite meal with you!
Thank you for joining us on this adventure, and we hope you discover a passion for food the way we have, or at least find a few yummy recipes to try out yourself!
Q: Do you have professional culinary training?
Mark is currently completing his Elite Diplôme de Cuisine at the Culinary Institute LeNôtre in Houston, Texas.
Q: Did you always love to cook/bake?
Mark has always had the ‘cooking bug’ but I (Angela) discovered my passion for cooking when I met Mark. We began cooking together when we were first started dating and fell in love with cooking and each other along the way.
Q: What equipment do you use for your photos?
I shoot all of my photos in my home studio using my Nikon Z7ii, Nikkor Z 50mm, Nikkor 24-70mm and Nikkor 105mm macro lenses. I primarily shoot with artificial light sources (strobe, speedlight and continuous light). For editing, I use Adobe Lightroom Classic and Photoshop.
Q: Is blogging your full-time job?
Until recently, both Mark and I had other professions and careers that took up the majority of our time, so the work we did for the blog was primarily a passion project that allowed us to make some money on the side. Call it our side hustle if you will! But as of June 2021, I left my other job to focus solely on the blog, food photography and content creation for brands.
Q: Do you partner with brands for recipe development, photography or sponsored work?

Q: Do you teach cooking classes?
COMING SOON!!! We plan to launch a series of virtual cooking classes at some point. Stay tuned! For now, you can find us cooking on Instagram stories and IGTV.
