Here’s a little teaser info for my loyal readers and followers…
I’m getting ready to start a food series! For a little hint I’ll tell you that it’s going to involve family, food, and travel. I can’t wait to start sharing! I’m hoping to start the series in October so make sure you’re following me on one of my social outlets or subscribe to my email list (at the bottom of this post or in sidebar).
Kicking off my foodie weekend is a special pre-conference excursion to the new Sur La Table Corporate Office Test Kitchen! I’ll be spending the afternoon with the folks of Sur La Table and KitchenAid. Say WHAT!? Yes, KitchenAid and Sur La Table. My new KitchenAid mixer is so pretty and powerful; I can’t wait to see what they have to share with us. Sur La Table is a store filled with so many amazing kitchen tools and pretties. Hopefully I’ll be seeing lots of fun goodies that I can share on instagram!
The weekend also features some amazing food samples, wine samples, and all around yummy goodness. Many amazing brands will be onsite sharing all about their brand and what they have to offer people who love food. Ever heard of Urbanspoon? They’ll be there! I’m looking forward to hopefully finding some more nut-free brands to add to my school lunch arsenal! I’m hoping to score some samples from Bigelow Tea, Raincoast Crisps, Bristol Bay Sustainable Salmon and Accolade Wines among many others.
Another part of the conference are the classes all about blogging and food. A few that are high on my list are Modern Editorial Photography, So, How Did it Taste?, Action! Creating Compelling Video Content, Self-Publishing e-Books on Amazon.com. Learning new tips and techniques are always one of the best perks of attending conferences.
