Field of Dreams & The Jig is Up!

WOW -big night!  I will be writing a full, very detailed, full of photos post tomorrow on the AMAZING meal I just had at Wilson Farms Farm to Fork Dinner.  What an amazing celebration of local produce.   Every dish was artfully crafted, and full of incredible fresh flavor.  I am still in awe from each dish.

The second part of this evening- Daisy, a reader, guessed where The_SBK and I will be headed in just a couple of weeks!  Seattle is the great destination!  Why are we headed there?
International Food Bloggers Conference 2010
Katie and I will be headed to the International Food Blogger Conference, put on by Foodista in the great city of Seattle!

I am so excited to be attending this event which is chock full of not only amazing speakers, but some food bloggers that I truly admire.  Over the next couple of weeks (we leave on August 27th) I know I'll be talking more about it, but for now I can just say that I am utterly excited and totally thrilled!

To wrap up the games that we've been playing:
My first clue: Green- Seattle is also known as The Emerald City
Katie's first clue:  A compass to head west- though many of you guessed California, Washington State is another great state in the North West- and one that I haven't previously visited!
My second clue- Oysters.  The North West is known for their Oysters, and Seattle for their fish market.  Additionally, the IFBC will be featuring Oysters at the opening party (yay!)
Katie's second clue:  A Notebook and her party shoes- there are so many amazing speakers and educators that a note book is more than necessary.  Party shoes- well- there will be some fantastic networking and social opportunities- some that I am thrilled to be able to attend!
My third clue: a needle- as in the Space Needle!  A landmark I cannot wait to check out!

This trip has been in the works for months and I am so glad to finally be able to share my excitement with you!

On that note- I wish you a very good evening- I still have visions of a farm dinner dancing in my head!

Restaurant Reviews: A dead art?

Last December I declared 2023 the year I would return to food writing.  It was a bold statement (even now as I look at my last published dat...
