I just returned from an incredible weekend in Nashville at Food Blog Forum, where I spoke about recipe development with Alison Lewis of Ingredients, Inc. The event, organized by Lindsay Landis, Beth Sachan, and Leah Short, was an entire day of seminars, panels, and, of course, eating. In addition to recipe development, discussions covered every topic from food photography and styling by Todd Porter and Diane Cu of White on Rice Couple, as well as the business of blogging led by Steamy Kitchen‘s Jaden Hair.
A trio of the city’s finest food trucks served up lunch, featuring banh mi, tostadas, and shrimp and grits from Riffs Truck, Yayo’s O.M.G., and Happy Eating. And the evening sendoff at The Patterson House showcased southern cocktails paired with deep-fried ricotta bites, homemade focaccia and spicy hummus, and pork cracklings.
It was such a great experience getting to meet so many of you in person and to dive into the wide world of recipe development. As always, you can stay in touch with us on Facebook, Twitter, or by email (email@example.com). Cheers to a successful Food Blog Forum!
