20 Questions with TasteSpotting’s Summer Intern, Georgia!

Georgia Tollin, Editorial Intern
In case you haven’t noticed, and you probably haven’t because she brilliantly picked up her duties without a hitch, TasteSpotting has a Summer Intern!

Georgia Tollin came to us via Brown University (though she is from LA, where our TasteSpotting HQ is). She’s been working on the editorial side of the site and contributing posts to our Features (check out her recipes for Mint Chip Ice Cream and Coffee Cake Cupcakes if you haven’t already). She’s been with us for a few months now but we haven’t had a chance yet to formally introduce her because, well, look at her photo! She’s a very busy girl negotiating business, closing deals, and you know, making dinner reservations and stuff.

But we finally got her to answer a few fun questions so you can get to know her better. May we introduce you to Georgia Tollin via the inaugural post for a new feature here on TasteSpotting, 20 Questions with…

That’s Georgia!

Despite all our efforts to deny it, summer is indeed coming to a close, so we only have a few more days with Georgia before she heads back to Providence to start her sophomore year. Yes, we are devastated and have no idea how we will survive without an excuse to take our intern to a two-hour lunch every day.

p.s. 20 Questions with… is a new feature in which we’re hoping to spotlight interesting people who have great taste. Know someone we and the rest of the food-wide-web should get to know? Send me an email (sarah at tastespotting dot com) with a suggestion and I’ll chase them down!

Ohmygoodness! You are the only other person I have ever heard of who gets mushrooms and olives on their pizza like I do!!! So nice to have a pizza soul mate out there somewhere. ;)

Having been the beneficiary of many a yummy chocolate chip banana bread I can vouch for Georgia Tollins baking acumen. Go Georgia!

Today I JUST discovered the blog. How did I not know tastespotting was more than just the picture board?

Anyway, love this side of things too! I would love to know more about interning and even job opportunities with tastespotting.

I think you were lucky to have Georgia as a summer intern. She always excels at everything she does. And she does a lot of things!
She also is as sweet as any dish she makes. What a girl!!
I love her very much.
