Do you like to eat food paid for by someone else and write about it. If so this job opportunity may interest you. Tourism officials in Richmond, British Columbia are seeking applications from food bloggers from around the world. They say the city of 200,000 outside Vancouver is "a hidden gastronomic gem" with more than 400 Asian eateries, and want to capitalize on the international rise in culinary tourism.
It’s a demanding job. The successful applicant will have to visit at least one of the city's restaurants every day. The one-year contract comes with a salary of $50,000, plus compensation for housing and living expenses, as well as a daily stipend for all restaurant meals. And to help burn off all those calories, the perks also include a membership to the Richmond Olympic Oval and its 2,100-square-metre fitness centre.
It is amazing the food blogging is becoming a profession and the influence that food bloggers are having.
