Another guest blog from my colleague at Kennesaw State University, Dr Josh Azriel who is rising to my challenge of examining the relationship between food and the high streets of the world for my book ‘Taste and the TV Chef’..
It can be daunting breaking into food media, especially television. Yet, 23 year old Courtney Rushing, of Atlanta, Georgia in the United States has embarked on a new career. As a recent college graduate of Kennesaw State University, Courtney entered a Facebook contest and won an opportunity in June to appear on an American national television show, Live with Kelly and Michael. She led a cooking demonstration outside the studio on a sidewalk in New York City. She is waiting to see if she finished in the top 2 for cooking guest appearances with social media “likes” for a chance at a second appearance on the show. In the meantime she hosts a food blog, “Rushing to the Kitchen” at rushingtothekitchen.com.
Courtney sat down with Kennesaw State University Journalism Director Josh Azriel to talk food, her career and where she likes to eat in Atlanta.
