This time last week I was at Food Blogger Connect 2011 (FBC), thanks to Olives from Spain, who generously gave away 4 tickets to the event via Twitter.
Held at the Hempel Hotel, FBC is a 3-day conference for food bloggers, covering a variety of food related topics and just about everything you wanted to know about blogging. Attracting food bloggers from all over Europe and beyond, there are guest speakers, workshops, cooking demonstrations and food/wine tastings. It's a great weekend for all, even those who are thinking about starting a food blog.
Some highlights of the weekend were:
► Tim Hayward - journalist & broadcaster, founder of Fire & Knives
► Babette Pepaj - from BakeSpace
► Jaden Hair - from Steamy Kitchen
► Fiona Beckett - award winning food & drink writer, she blogs at Food and Wine Finds
► Anjum Anand - TV chef & cookery writer
► Caroline Mili Artiss - rising cookery star & Malaysian food expert
► Leila Brandão - incredible handmade chocolates
