If you subscribe to Foodies Like Us's newsletter, you'll notice in today's installment that Susie Timm is absent from the photo in the header. Now, it's just an image of Jay Pizarro laughing it up all by his lonesome
At least, I noticed it right away, because the co-founders of the culinary event company have always been photographed together since they started their biz last year.
But as of November 1, Timm is no longer half of Foodies Like Us. She sold her interest in the business to Pizarro and is starting up a new enterprise called Girl Meats Fork.
"I really wanted to focus my energies on social influence marketing for the food biz," says Timm. "I truly enjoy helping restaurants create a 'butts-in-seats' model of grassroots support. I did that a lot during my stint at Foodies, but it was not on the forefront of my business there."

Right now, Timm's website is just a single page promising content "coming soon." What's in the works, besides her marketing and consulting biz?
She'll be posting recipes, videos, and commentary on a range of food and cocktail-related topics, but the main focus will be barbecue, from marinades to smoking and grilling.
"I am very passionate about all things BBQ and meat related," she says, "so you can expect detailed adventures of my life on the competitive BBQ circuit -- being one of few women is a very interesting adventure."
