I had high expectations on the 2011 edition of the food bloggers conference FBC held in London Aug 12-14 and they were met. The venue was the elegant design hotel Hempel, the people were friendly, the food was fabulous, the sponsors were generous, the presentations were interesting and in the end I was offered a prize!
My new friend Artemis from Wonderfoodland asked me if I would attend the Masterclass with chef Omar Allibhoy instead of her as she lives in Greece. Could I say No?! :) So I am going to the Spanish tapas Masterclass in October and will be blogging about it after that.
I would like to share with you the interesting people and their blogs I met (in no particular order), check them out!
