Hans Välimäki Finland's premier Chef becomes Lifeblogger and Blogger
Hans Välimäki, Finland's premier chef, holder of two stars in the Guide Rouge became Lifeblogger and blogger today. Congratulations Hans, you can follow him here. He is the owner of Chez Dominique, of which I blogged about here. He recently opened Mecca, a trendy place for food and soul.
I wanted to test a hypothesis that Lifeblog, a blog and a cameraphone could be great tools for the modern chef living hectic lives shuttling between the public eye and the stowe. I thought that Hans would be a perfect person to test my hypotheisis on, so I got in touch with him and presented my hypothesis. He bought into it.
Here are some of the rationale of my hypothesis:
- Chefs are creating all the time and inspiration can come anytime, anywhere, having the ability to record it visually could help them to recreate it when time and place is right.
- Chefs often work in teams and to achive consistency it is crucial to have good sharing ability, here a team blog could be great.
- Chefs experiment, having the ability to record, different stages and variants could help them achieve perfection.
- Restaurants are more than food, having the ability to record the life in the restaurant will become important mementoes in a long career.
I couldn't agree more; Here's how Jamie Oliver uses his moblog to keep his fans up to date with his 'Fifteen' Restaurant.
It's a good option for those with little time and constantly on the move.
