FBC2013 – A Recap of Recaps

What a great three days we just had in Ontario at Hockley Valley Resort with 80 of our members at FBC2013 this past weekend!  This is not a recap of the weekend – at least, not from our perspective.  We’re still trying hard to wrap our own brains around what just happened.

Instead, we’ll let our attendees do the talking, or rather, writing and photographing.  And we thought it might be nice to recap them all here for anyone who wants to read them.

It was great to meet so many of you, to have such gracious, well-spoken presenters and panelists, and such supportive sponsors.  Not to mention a picturesque setting and a crew of hard working volunteers.   We even managed to trend WORLDWIDE on twitter.  Is the world ripe for Canadian food bloggers who aren’t afraid to say they’re Canadian?  Sure looks like it!  We’ll let the attendees tell you the rest in their own words:
