This is more a blog than a website, but I’ve attempted to group the posts and information together to help you find what you’re looking for. You can also search the site.
I like pretending to be a spy. It brings out the James Bond or Mata Hari in me. I visit restaurants incognito and all food bills are paid on my dime. The experience I describe is one of a typical food-appreciating diner. I am not a chef, sommelier or food professional; just an average gal who cares about where my food comes from and enjoys good, tasty eats.
That said, I’m open to free samples and invitations. If I write a review of a product that I did not pay for or an event that I did not pay to attend, I will mention this in the review.
Advertising and Sponsorship
We all have to support our habits. In my case, I have to eat (and put a roof over my head). I do accept advertising from companies and products that I feel are socially and environmentally responsible, or at the very least share my values. This is a subjective evaluation. If you are interesting in advertising with MindfulTable, or doing a co-promotion, please contact me.
Giveaways and Partnerships
I am open to giveaways. If you believe you have a product that shares my values and would like to promote it through a giveaway, please contact me. If I am offering a giveaway, I won’t share your information with anyone else. You gave it to MindfulTable and it stays with us. If we need to share it with anyone (even the giveaway provider), we will ask you first!
By subscribing to the MindfulTable newsletter you will get our blog posts in a weekly digest format vie e-mail. You may also get special offers like giveaways or discounts from our advertisers. We don’t share or sell our subscriber list. Your personal information stays with us.
