When I met Eli Knauer who writes Adventures of a Koodie he was nine years old with his goal in life is to be a food writer. In fact, I wrote a piece on him in August, 2010 just as he was starting to blog his restaurant reviews. Since that time Eli has made local, national and international news.
The international attention stemmed from his connection with Ron Matz of WJZ-TV. They both judged the grilled cheese contest at the Mt. Washington Tavern. Matz was impressed on how Eli took the time to taste and comment on the grilled cheese contest entries which precipitated an interview with Eli for the television station. From there interest grew. With over 100,000 hits on his blog and over 200 regular followers, Eli tastes and reviews restaurants letting everyone know if they are kid friendly and how the food tastes from a kid’s perspective.
