FBC is currently on the road!  We just wrapped up a busy week in Toronto that ended with a Saturday afternoon at Kensington Market with a great group of Toronto area FBC Members! This week, we're in Montreal working on preparations for FBC2015 this October.  We're so excited to be brining our conference to such a great city - plus it gives us a great excuse to visit Montreal and... well... eat a lot of stuff!

Culinary Tour of The Greek Islands with The Culinary Travel Guide

Indulge your passion for food & wine as you discover the extraordinary hospitality the Greeks are famous for:  Dazzling white-washed villages, golden beaches, and clear azure water are just the start of what the gorgeous Greek islands have to offer. The Cyclades are the Aegean's most precious jewels and a food lover's paradise. Amazing delicacies come from here - unbelievably fresh seafood, artisan cheeses that have never travelled beyond these shores, wonderful sausages and preserved meats, sun-dried tomatoes, capers, almond-paste confections, honey, wild artichokes and so much more.
