Greenpointer, Liza De Guia, started merely tweeting as SkeeterNYC, sending traffic to her Vimeo channel that aired food stories highlighting sustainable, small businesses across the state of New York.  She gave us a behind-the-scenes look at Milkmade, a subscription service for home-made ice cream that never delivers you the same flavor more than once; lead us to Long Island to meet Dan Machin and his self-titled farm ‘The Lone Acre’, revealing his goal of living for one year as a solo man with but one acre of land and the intention of growing over 100 varieties to sell at his first NYC market stand; and last but not least, allowed us to spend time with urban beekeepers based in Brooklyn who wanted to fulfill their desires to make home-made honey.

Her official new site, Food Curated, has only just launched but already her culinary narratives have found themselves embedded in New York Magazine’s GrubStreet, Eater, Brooklyn Based and New York Times website (listed as a must-see video), all through the power of online entrepreneurism and word of mouth buzz.  The site not only encompasses a library of her video journalism, but includes a curated platter of food information; a schedule of food events across the city, a go-to list of local farmers for quality produce, food blogs to follow and a shopping list of gastronomic destinations for the best in local and gourmet ingredients.  Armed with the belief that  ‘all good food has a story’, Liza has taken a do-it-yourself approach to discovering what has been untold, drawing a sharp new light to shine around New York’s burgeoning sustainable food community.
