Special Feature: Products Sally Recommends

Mary Bloch

Mary Bloch’s (mary.bloch@gmail.com) spouse and children come first; food and travel constitute a close second. She loves to cook fun, healthful and stimulating meals, the more unusual the better. Researching which restaurants to visit is also a favorite hobby, and she relishes the payoff – visually appealing and palate-pleasing dishes. For years, she has been a resource of friends and family who want to know where to go, where to stay and where to eat.

When Mary travels, the food experience is paramount and takes precedence over most sightseeing excursions.  Her love for seeking out exciting spots has been instilled in and appreciated by her two sons, whose adventurous spirits have transformed her own journey in the kitchen.  It is much more satisfying to cook for an appreciative audience.
Mary’s husband maintains an immense garden of fruits, vegetables and herbs, another important inspiration for her endeavors and a treasure trove during the summer months.

Though an attorney by trade, Mary’s love of cooking, combined with her passion for food and travel, led her to turn to food writing, which, according to her friends, is a natural fit. She writes a monthly column in The Independent, a local Kansas City magazine, in which she shares restaurant recommendations, food trends and finds, cooking and menu suggestions and culinary tips. Mary also contributes regularly to Go Magazine’s monthly destination guide, and her work has been published in Midwest Airlines’ magazine.  Serving as a regular panelist on “The Food Critics”, a local public radio show, provides one other medium for Mary to discuss the restaurant scene in Kansas City.
