Elizabeth Minchilli, author of Eating Rome..launches Eat-Italy App…she is going places!
I had the genuine pleasure of interviewing the well-known author Elizabeth Minchilli recently. She is dynamic, energetic beyond belief, engaging, and intelligent. In the interview she provided a lot of interesting material that is not only informative, but also thought-provoking. She is a woman after my own heart.
I contacted Elizabeth originally because a friend of mine follows Elizabeth’s blog closely and had mentioned the fact that Elizabeth is launching the App ‘Eat-Italy", which you can download for free. My friend knew I was headed to Italy this summer and suggested I check it out. I downloaded the App for my phone along with the new ‘Eat-Milan‘ App and found it may very well come in handy since I have not spent much time in Milan recently.
I thought I would include a few excerpts from this exciting interview:
When asked about her career and what motivates her to continue, she had this to say:
"As long as people are asking for more and as long as technology continues to change, I’ll keep writing about food on whatever platform is available. You asked how I got into Apps, but who even knows if Apps will still be around in a few years? I am always very happy to adapt, to change, and write about what I am passionate about."
"What keeps me going is the enthusiasm that people are bringing to my work. "
"First and foremost I am a writer. I always want to get what I am talking about to the people who want to have it."
"I hope that my greatest achievements are still to come"
When asked about her foray into the world of Apps, she had this to say:
"Within “Eat Italy” I have other in-App purchases (meaning that within that App you can buy separate Apps). I hope to have a lot more regions and a lot more cities."
When asked about her perspective on living in Rome, she had this to say:
"I basically grew up in Rome. So, Rome is home for me. On the other hand, I love traveling throughout Italy."
Ci sentiamo presto, Lina
