Halifax Members Getting it Done!

Congrats to FBC Members Kathy Jollimore (Eat Halifax) and Kelly Neil (kellyneil.com) on placing second and third, respectively, in The Coast's Best Local Food Blog rankings.

And on the same day, both ladies chatted about food blogging with CTV.  You can watch them in action.  Great job ladies!

The Halifax Food Bloggers group also held a recent FARM-MARKET-TABLE recipe contest in partnership with the Halifax Seaport Market.  It sounds like it was a tight race but they awarded FBC Member Eatitorial with first prize!  You can read her winning entry here.

Great to see so much good stuff coming out of Nova Scotia, including lots of new FBC members - keep up the great work everyone!

Seeing the Halifax bloggers tribute reminded me that Edmonton had a #yeggies awards night in May and Karlynn of The Kitchen Magpie was named the best local food blogger in Edmonton!
