Last weekend, we were at the International Food Bloggers Conference, hosted by Foodista, in beautiful Seattle, Washington. As gift suite sponsors, we handed out some of our finest vanilla beans to conference attendees — everyone said they were the highlight of the swag! One of the highlights of the weekend for us: meeting two of our Brand Ambassadors:
- Culinary Concoctions by Peabody: Peabody was a great resource to have met before IFBC kicked off! As a veteran of the conference, she had all the pointers on what to do, where to be and when. If you haven’t been over to her blog in a while, get ready for some seasonal delights!
- The Vintage Mixer: Just like us, Becky was a first-timer at IFBC and it was wonderful sharing our deer-in-the-headlights moments with her! Despite chasing around an *almost* toddler, Becky’s energy and enthusiasm was contagious — just like her beautiful posts. We’ll take ours with a side of Seattle’s finest dark roast.
Along with Peabody and Becky, we were so excited to meet several other amazing bloggers and hear what they had to say. The weekend was filled with great conversations, and some educational seminars. From those seminars, we thought we’d share our reading list for the fall:
- The Flavor Bible: by Karen Page and Andrew Dornenburg. Karen and Andrew shared some of their history as keynote speakers and their creativity and energy for food was palpable. We’re sure this book will up our kitchen game!
- Will Write for Food: by Dianne Jacob. Dianne’s approach to food is out of the box and we are excited to apply her approach in the kitchen and in our posts.
