We're hoping everyone has enjoyed a happy Thanksgiving this long weekend. We have a few things to tell you about this week!
Winner of the Cono Sur Blogger Competition
Big congrats to FBC Member Kellie MacMillan of Princess and the Yard Ape for winning the Cono Sur Blogger Competition! You might recall we promoted it back in July cause it sounded like a great opportunity and sure enough it was! Kellie will be representing Canada at the Cono Sur Grande Finale in Paris from Nov 12-14th and competing against other bloggers from Ireland, Japan, the US, Sweden and Chile. You can check out here winning recipe, Duck Egg Vegetable Tart (paired with Cono Sur Viognier). Kellie herself is a trained sommelier who loves pairing wines with delicious food. We know she's going to to do well in Paris - good luck Kellie!
We have a very limited number of Conference Only passes left for FBC2015 in Montreal. Don't miss out on what is promising to be a fantastic weekend of fun, food, networking, and of course, learning.
We will be announcing two very exciting contests this week that are only open to attendees! (HINT: one of them may involve airfare and hotel for 2(!) and another may involve a hosting the ultimate party at your house with everyone taken care of, including food, wine and flowers!) .
There are also Day Passes available - if you live in Montreal but can't attend for the full weekend, come join us on either Saturday or Sunday!
Wish a warm welcome to our newest batch of Canadian food bloggers. We're glad to have you join us!
