Raise your hand if you’ve found yourself scrolling through Instagram at the exact time you’re at the tipping point of becoming hangry. You’re not alone. It’s the worst feeling because you’re craving absolutely anything and everything at that moment. But then, it’s an amazing feeling to scroll past all these amazing dishes that you wish could appear in front of you as soon as possible. One feed you should consider following is chef/ blogger, NATHANIEL CRAWFORD. Central Illinois-based Nathaniel Crawford runs the food blog, TermiNatetor Kitchen which launched back in January 2015. “By day, I’m a junior in college studying Hospitality Management at Eastern Illinois University, and by night, I’m a home chef, blogger, and small business owner. I also work with clients, such as Clabber Girl and
Aunt Millie’s Bread, with recipe development/ photography/blogging services.” To say Crawford is a busy guy is an understatement. Let’s start with his food blog which he describes as ‘Southern Gothic meets Martha Stewart.’ Interesting take, no? Everything about Crawford’s history is interesting! His journey with food started by accident back in 2013 when he would be stuck at home all day while his family members were at work. It was his mother who suggested Crawford to start making dinner for the family. First dish? “The driest stuffing casserole known to man. It was embarrassing and kind of a letdown but something inside of me kept pushing me, telling me to cook more and more. It happened slowly then all at once. I had fallen in love with food. The rest is history and I haven’t stopped since.”
