Welcome to Bistro OneSix… a Boise, Idaho food blog
written and photographed by Linda Whittig.
This food blog was born out of the desire to have a creative outlet doing some of my favorite things – cooking, writing and photographing. I’m lucky to have a day job as a graphic designer and web department manager at a firm in Boise called Foerstel. While that’s a creative outlet as well, it’s one dictated by clients and marketing strategies and ROI. Here I get to do everything just as I want.
I’m an Idaho girl through and through. At one point, I wouldn’t have exactly bragged about that but since then I’ve come to my senses. I live in the historic north end neighborhood in Boise with my husband, Devin, and my two furry children, Duke & Louie.
I started this food blog back in April of 2012. It’s amazing to see how much things have changed over that time. Everything from the type of recipes I focused on to my photography skills (the latter is actually sort of embarrassing at times). I think it shows growth though and I hope that never stops.
I focus on healthy, clean eating recipes, looking for opportunities to move away from meals that are centered around a protein and find new and interesting ways to incorporate veggies into almost anything and everything. While I’m not a vegetarian or a vegan, I am experimenting more and more in this area, using new and interesting ingredients and discovering a whole new arena of food.
Thank you for stopping by. I hope you find something here you enjoy.
