Babette Pepaj,, TECHmunch,

  • Babette Pepaj founded in August 2006 as the Web’s first food social network and recipe swap. With virtually no tech industry experience, the former TV producer (and avid baker) has built the site into the largest online community of its kind for food enthusiasts. In the process, she has earned some of the industry’s highest accolades, including back-to-back Webby Award nominations in 2009 and 2010 in the ultra-competitive “Best Social Networking” category.

    Prior to launching BakeSpace, Babette worked for more than a decade producing and directing reality TV. With Babette at the helm, BakeSpace has introduced many online food innovations including the first online mentor program for home chefs and most recently “Cookbook Café,” the first independent publishing platform where anyone can build, sell and shop for a digital cookbook and interactive cookbook iPad app.

    Babette is also the founder of TECHmunch and has built relationships with thousands of food bloggers around the globe. With the website, conference and digital publishing app, Babette has build three distinctive, yet cohesive, opportunities for home cooks to connect and share.
