Thug Kitchen and Food Network Canada Coming to FBC2014

If you have not bought your ticket yet to FBC2014, then now is the time... we're at over 80% sold with just five weeks to go.  And we are beyond excited to be welcoming Thug Kitchen and their publisher, House of Anansi, to FBC2014.  Thug Kitchen will be wrapping up our Saturday night dinner with a... shall we say...lively? presentation that you will not want to miss!  And House of Anansi has stepped on board as a bronze sponsor to ensure that all attendees get a copy of the new Thug Kitchen book (there may even be an autograph session on Saturday night!).  And if that's not enough, we're thrilled to be welcoming Food Network Canada as a gold sponsor as well! We'll have more on both of these exciting developments in the coming days!

Apple Week on FBC

As we mentioned last week, we'll be showcasing our members' amazing roundup of apple recipes just in time for apple season.  Starting tomorrow, we have over 50 beautiful sweet and savoury apple recipes coming your way over four days - you won't want to miss out.  And, to add to the fun, we'll be doing an apple theme on instagram all week - get out and capture apples in your part of the country with your phones, post them to IG, tag them #FBCAppleWeek and we'll be regramming as many as we can throughout the week.

We'll also be pinning all our roundup recipes to our apple pinterest board next week and we'll be asking you all to share your recipes to the board as well!
