Another Tea Giveaway!
Last week we had two members doing two giveaways on their blog. If you missed them, we've got one more happening with Jason at Shut Up and Eat Montreal. The great people over at Davids Teas are launching a new spring collection line of teas to scare away the winter blues and cold weather. To share in the excitement of the fresh launch, Jason will be giving away a set of their spring collection which is inspired by exotic fruits, ocean breezes and sunny picnics.
Food Map T-Shirts
FBC Member Jodi at legalnomads.com has started a new project for food and art lovers: a t-shirt with a one-of-a-kind hand-drawn map of the many incredible meals to be found in Vietnam. From tiny street stalls to bustling markets, these dishes and drinks are part of what makes exploring Vietnam so exciting. Jodi and artist Ella of ellafrancessanders.com teamed up to create these fun t-shirts based on Jodi's eating adventures and hope that more countries will follow. You can purchase your very own over on teespring.
A warm welcome to our newest group of FBC Members. We're happy to have you join us!
