Meet D’Angela Moore

Today we’d like to introduce you to D’Angela Moore. 

Hi D’Angela, can you start by introducing yourself? We’d love to learn more about how you got to where you are today?
After graduating college, I realized it was my time to do things as I saw fit. I initially went to college to gain the necessary tools to own a restaurant. Once receiving my degree, I felt a little cheated because I believe the advice I received wasn’t accurate to what I had hoped to achieve (not to discredit my Business Degree). However, this led me to start my very own food blog, BonAppéDee (many call me Dee for short, and from there BonAppéDee was born). I began to immerse myself in the world of culinary; not having any idea where this passion of mine would lead, I was able to meet other culinary individuals and cover food tastings and events throughout the Washington DC Metropolitan area. After taking a break for a few years, I began recreating a new and improved website/ blog of all my food journeys to highlight DC’s small but very diverse food atmosphere.

I’m where I am today because I decided to experiment in the kitchen. I later realized, I encouraged many at-home chefs & foodies to try different cooking techniques using spices and items in their pantry. And for those no-so at home chefs, I display local restaurants and food events around the DMV and beyond. I believe food connects people from all ethnicities and cultures.

Alright, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
Not at all, the many struggles that come with food blogging can truly be unforeseen. From deciding to have a website/landing/social page to purchasing the proper camera tools and deciding on what content best fits your food blogging style.

It’s sometimes very difficult to be consistent when you have a full-time job and other responsibilities. For me, I struggle with consistency because I have so many ideas, I want to execute but struggle with how I want to display my creativity.

Can you tell our readers more about what you do and what you think sets you apart from others?
I know not everyone is up for the challenge to master culinary kitchen skills, so I like to provide simple & helpful techniques that make at-home meals taste just as delicious as already prepared food and/or restaurant cuisines. I encourage my followers and subscribers to explore local markets for new spices to enhance their palates. I believe food should not only be mouthwatering but a continued experiment and work of art that should always be explored. I like to co consider myself the Food & Kitchen Helpdesk, I make the mistakes and do the research so others don’t have to. If you’re someone who enjoys food (spices, cooking, resturante, kitchen gadgets) and everything related, I’m here to help!

Can you talk to us a bit about happiness and what makes you happy?
I love being able to practice my passion for cooking and connecting with others; whether it’s local or abroad. I’ve found that my hometown has a little of something for everyone and I’m eager to take others alongside me on food adventures as I explore all things related to food!
