Well by now I am sure that most food bloggers in the universe have heard of the fabulous International Food Bloggers Conference that was put on last week by the great folks over at Foodista.
I did a little traveling afterward, so I am late to post about it, but let me just say this: WOW!!!!! I hope they do it again and again and again.
Everything from the speakers to the venues to the food was impeccably organized. And don’t even get me started on the gift bags! Let’s just say that the $45.00 I spent in overweight luggage fees at the airport didn’t even make a dent in the value of the amazing items we got.
As far as I know, I was the only gluten-free food blogger there. With the exception of the first breakfast, I had no problem finding something ultra delicious to eat. All the chefs were super knowledgeable about gluten and directed me to what I could eat and even made me up some special little plates specifically sans gluten.
The rock stars of food blogging were there and very generously passed on their wisdom and advice. The assembly of bloggers was diverse but the common thread was passion. Most of us receive little or no monetary reward for blogging, so why do we do it?
To spend time with over a hundred people all passionate about food was truly a gift.
Here are a few links to check out if you didn’t get a chance to go yourself. Have a little vicarious fun!
