It's been a busy week for us here at FBC as we slowly get back to "real life" after the fun that was FBC2013. We've been busy wrapping up things on our end, seeking feedback and debriefing the weekend so the news is going to be short and sweet this week.

Foodie Pages members only contest

Over in the Members' Only area we have a wonderful contest brought to you by FoodiePages.  In celebration of the launch of their new TASTING BOX, and FBC present the TASTING BOX Inspiration Contest. We are challenging food bloggers across Canada to create a dish or recipe that is “inspired” by any of the delicious foods included in the first TASTING BOX, and asking them to write about your inspired recipe on your blog.

FBC2013 recap posts - a roundup

We see a lot of our attendees have been busy writing up their experiences so we've compiled a roundup of the posts so far. You can check out FBC2013 attendees' posts  about the conference here.  If you wrote a recap and it's not in the list, please let us know and we will add it in. If you write one in the coming week(s), please do the same - we'd love to have them all in one place for easy reference.

I have not yet received an email from Krystin at Delta. I do believe my email address is incorrect. I made an email correction this weekend through the FBC contact section of the site. If there is an problems let me know.

I hadn’t received mine, either, but Helene from SuperKitchenMachines sent me hers, and I filled it out that way. I did check my spam, but it wasn’t there. I am sure that worked as it asked for my website information and all specific questions that she will received when getting my form.
This was a wild bit of swag! We are renovating our kitchen – not the cabinets, but replacing the counters, sinks, etc… and I actually had one of these very taps installed the Tuesday before the conference. I am all over it and cannot wait to get the post out… but the kitchen is still such a mess, I can’t get an image I will let go public, yet!
Thanks to Delta and to the three of you for taking on such and incredible ask…and I cannot say enough about how much I love this tap!


Hi Sherrie, I’ll check with Delta on Monday. Check your spam folder. It would have gone to the same email you used to purchase your FBC2013 ticket.
