In just a few days food blogger friends from across the globe will reunite at the International Food Blogger Conference in Seattle.
With over 400 in attendance it is sure to be fun and they are still open for registration. Active food bloggers receive a reduced conference rate of $95 provided they write 3 blog posts about the conference or sponsors.
Last year @BordeauxWines hosted a great class on the region and this year they are hosting a Get to Know White Bordeaux session that is a can’t miss for wine lovers. Maybe I can follow this up with a visit to Miller’s Guild for dinner. As a Seattle resident I can’t believe I haven’t yet visited James Beard Award Winning Chef Jason Wilson’s restaurant. Its’ location is a slice of Seattle history built around a nine-foot-long, custom-made wood-fired grill. The menu features 75-day dry-aged beef and crafted cocktails made with spirits house-finished in oak casks, suspended above the bar.
Then there is Todd Coleman’s presentation of Food Photography and Beyond he has a great bio and has propped, styled, and photographed the majority of Saveur magazines’ covers.
Tim Resnick has a passion for cutting-edge web technology and web marketing, having worked in India and the states I am sure he brings a very interesting perspective. His feature is: The Rules Have Changed: SEO for Bloggers in 2014 and Beyond.
And finally, though I have mentioned it before there is two-time James Beard Award Winning authors Karen Page and Andrew Dornenburg who have written some of the world’s most influential books on food and wine – most notably THE FLAVOR BIBLE and What to Drink With What You Eat in charge of the conference keynote address.
There are many other speakers, sessions, tastings and more tastings, and a lot of visiting with fellow food bloggers. I always learn a lot whenever I hang with these people. I hope you can make it !!
