The award winning Mac n cheese at Toronto's SOCO at the Delta Toronto!

Can you believe it? We're already half way through the first month of 2016!

It's already been a busy month for us here at FBC - we'vecompleted our first trip of the year with a visit to Toronto for the kick off to the International Year of the Pulse celebrations with Chef Michael Smith,  Canadian Lentils and lots of FBC Members!

And while we were in Toronto, we spent a day visiting the Delta Toronto, home of FBC2016 this October.  While we were there we met with hotel's talented executive chef, Dan Craig, formerly of EBO in Vancouver. And we spent some time with our Delta event planner to start getting the lay of the land so we can start planning an exciting program for the conference!

Another great highlight of our trips was getting to visit Loka - the former popup restaurant that now has a permanent home on Toronto's Queen Street West.  Loka is the result of the hard work of FBCers Dave and Ayngelina of Bacon is Magic and... wow! It was amazing.  FBC was very proud to support their kickstarter campaign last year and it was awesome to see (and taste!) the end result.  Definitely stop by if you're in Toronto (and wear your stretchy pants!)

Featured Bloggers

You may have noticed we've taken some time off from our featured bloggers posts.  Rest assured this was just over the holiday season and we'll be back with a new Featured FBC Member every Friday starting the first week of February.  If there's an FBC member you'd like to see featured, let us know! (and no, you can't nominate yourself!)

We grew a lot over the holidays! Wish a warm welcome to our newest batch of Canadian food bloggers.  We're glad to have you join us. Because there were so many of you, we're going to break out our new members by province this week to help you find some new voices in your neck of the woods!
