What is The Bottomless Pit?
The Bottomless Pit is gluten-free food blog and subdivision of Sunflower Creative Co. The blog’s mission is to make gluten-free recipes more accessible, tasty and less work for the everyday person.
The Bottomless Pit features recipes designed by the Founder, Arianna Negri. Wondering where the name comes from? Arianna has been described as a “bottomless pit” when it comes to food, always hungry and constantly thinking about the next meal or recipe.
Arianna has been gluten-free since 2018 and was later diagnosed with Fibromyalgia in 2019. The blog also serves as a safe space for those battling autoimmune diseases and offers tips, researched blog posts, and Arianna’s own journey with a chronic illness.
Meet Arianna Negri
Arianna has always had a passion for cooking but it really came to fruition after studying abroad in San Sebastian, Spain in 2016. While abroad, Arianna took a cooking class and fell in love with the art of food, the comfort that cooking provided, and the creativity it allowed her to pursue.
After returning for her junior year at Cal Poly San Luis Obispo, Arianna sought out any type of job that would get her closer to food. In 2017, she began working for Thomas Hill Organics, a farm-to-table restaurant in Paso Robles, as their social media coordinator and photographer. She fell even more in love with cooking and that’s when The Bottomless Pit was born.
What started out as a creative outlet, has turned into Arianna’s full-time passion project. After working for Thomas Hill Organics, Arianna went on to work as an assistant to a food stylist in San Francisco. Then, after doing her senior project on culinary tourism in San Diego, Arianna landed an internship at an event and marketing company that produces large-scale wine and food events in San Diego.
Fast forward three years and Arianna now owns her own business, Sunflower Creative Co., and runs The Bottomless Pit full time. When she’s not in the kitchen, you can find her exploring San Diego with her boyfriend, Sam, and cute rescue pup, Jules!
