The Single Gourmand website is filled with recipes geared towards singles and couples. Smaller recipes with shorter preparation times make these ideal for people who don't have tons of time to spend in the kitchen. Top it off with useful tips and tricks, how to's, and cookbook reviews it is a go to for new cooks who are tired of eating mac & cheese out of a box and want something more.
Because website design and the tools are always changing, The Single Gourmand, (TSG), I started this website back in 2002 as a way to expand and practice website design and photography. My love of cooking (and eating) guided me towards building a food blog site. Another driving force was wanting to help friends who were afraid of cooking by creating easier versions of recipes than what you could normally find on the internet. Besides being easier, the recipes were also scaled down so singles and couples can make enough for themselves and not have to eat tons of leftovers throughout the week.
The website was designed to be viewed as easily on mobile or a desktop
I have learned quite a bit about taking a good photo by building the website. All the photos are mine. I have gotten much better at composition, lighting, and color correction in photoshop. Currently I am using a Cannon Rebal Ti with a macro .25m/.8 ft lens for most of the photos and a Samsung A13 Android phone for lots of the pictures around the cooktop.
