My Food Blogging World Just Got A Little Smaller
Food Bloggers Meet in Europe
In the last few days I have been a very lucky food blogging girl. In both London and Paris, I somehow managed to persuade an eminent bunch of bloggers, the creme de la creme of the virtual food world in those locations, to meet little old me for drinks. The English-based contingent stumbled out of the British sunshine into the dark, dank cellar of Gordon's Wine Bar near Charing Cross Station. There was little more than a rather brutish Ploughman's to tempt them, foodwise, but that didn't stop the wine, and conversation, from flowing freely.
From left to right: Johanna from The Passionate Cook, Anna from Baking for Britain, Andrew from Spittoon, Keiko from Nordljus, me, Christina from The Thorngrove Table and Jeanne from Cook Sister. And just because you can't see them here, that doesn't mean they weren't there. Also present, cheeky little Monkey Gland from Jam Faced and Celia from English Patis. Thanks to Keiko, my luggage was slapped with a Heavy label at Heathrow the next day. She showered me with delightful gifts including a box of the most delicious-looking biscuits, ever. Can you guess what flavour they were? I am looking forward to trying the South African delicacy, Biltong, that Jeanne so kindly gave me too. A million thanks to all of you for coming out on the fifth of November.
In Paris, at Le Sancerre, we had an equally astounding turn out including some major food and blogging celebrities. Clockwise from left: Clotilde from Chocolate & Zucchini, Meg from Too Many Chefs, me, Michèle from Oswego Tea, Pascale from C'est moi qui l'ai fait!, Pim from Chez Pim and David, David from David Lebovitz, Cindy from Food Migration and Laura from Cucina Testa Rossa. Merci d'etre venu!
PS. I would try to be a gracious host when, or if, any of you visit San Francisco for our proposed World Food Bloggers Convention. In the meantime I hope you are all saving your Michael Recchiuti chocolates for a special occasion!
PPS. I forgot to give some credits before everyone starts thinking I masterminded these meetings. It's all down to everyone involved, but especially Johanna who coordinated the London meet and Meg who organized the Parisian bloggers. Merci encore.
