Everyone Needs a Ticket to Tasty

"Eat, Drink, Explore & Aspire!" That's what Ticket to Tasty is all about. Founded by Justine Frostad (CAS '09), it isn't just a food blog. It's a forum designed for people who love to cook and people who love to eat.

We had the great opportunity to talk with Justine about how Ticket to Tasty began, what she's learned about creating a successful food blog, and how NYU alumni can get started with a blog of their own. And we even got to try one of her recipes!
