Sometimes success starts with geeky enthusiasm.

At least, that's what it was like for Claire Thomas, creator of the mighty blog The Kitchy Kitchen and host of ABC's Food For Thought.

"I love food and I'm a food nerd," Claire admits. Even if she's not a trained chef, Claire takes pride in making her recipes approachable for all foodies and home cooks: "I never wanted [the blog] to be inaccessible in any way. It's been great to see how it's connected with such a wide group of people."

The food guru shares the story behind her blog, how she got into cooking, what female chef she idolizes and what adorable (and unique) treat her mother would make her growing up.
