The ATXgossip gang loves introducing you to the Best Austin Bloggers and Influencers. From fashionistas, artists, travel bloggers, writers, these are the accounts you should be following. This week we’re chatting with Gavin Booth and Karen Reinsberg of Couple In The Kitchen!
Gavin and Karen both grew up cooking a ton, so when they started dating, cooking together just made sense! So did sharing their love for food and fun on Instagram. They’ve been in the food and travel world for over seven years now and their website CoupleintheKitchen.com has become one of the top local sources for recipes, date ideas, travel tips and more!
“Being able to cook and travel for a living is a dream come true!,” Gavin told ATXgossip. “Our favorite partnership was traveling around the world to capture content for Hyatt hotels.”
The duo has big plans for 2022 especially since they are getting married this year! They are planning a small intimate wedding in Paris, and then plan to throw a big bash once they’re back in Austin. So, we can expect to see some of their wedding planning, more travel, food and there might even be a cookbook in their future.
Of course, we couldn’t let them go without answering some of our Totally Texas questions!
What’s your favorite Austin shot movie or TV show?
The first few seasons of Friday Night Lights are pretty hard to beat.
Who is your favorite Texas band/ musician?
Black Pumas play on repeat on our record player.
Who would you classify as “totally Texan?”
Who would play you in the movie of your life?
Ryan Gosling and Jennifer Lawrence would be ideal!
What advice do you have for Austinites looking to be successful in social media?
We started writing and shooting everything we love for ourselves and friends and family. Once we started it was such a fun hobby and luckily a few brands reached out, and with the money we made from them we invested in a camera to improve our work. Always be learning! So, with that being said, start blogging about your hobby without any expectation of it being monetary, and with enough good content brands will find you.
Who are some of your favorite accounts to follow?
OMG, there are too many to name. But when looking for fun spur of the moment events and date nights we turn to @365thingsaustin and @whenwherewhataustin. For food focused accounts we’re friends with and follow them all, it’s hard to choose favorites!
You can learn more about Couple in the Kitchen on their website and follow them on Instagram and TikTok!
