The International Food Bloggers Conference

Sweet Pea AgnolottiOff the Vine Magazine visited Seattle Washington for the first annual International Food Bloggers Conference focused on food, writing, and technology. Major sponsors included Sur la Table and foodista. The event sold out quickly, and brought together a diverse group of bloggers, food writers and cookbook authors from around the country.

Panel discussions on a variety of topics pertaining to writing style, content, food photography, platform design, legal issues and more were explored.

Wild King SalmonA fine group of Pacific Northwest chefs, producers and retailers provided a wonderful representation of the Northwest-style bounty of fresh produce, fish and locally grown ingredients. Each day, small plate luncheons were prepared. Some of the chefs participating were Jordan Mackey of six / eleven, Keith Luce of The Herbfarm, and Kerry Sear from Art at the Four Seasons.

Some of the food highlights:

+ Wild King Salmon with Indian spices, dandelion, bibb lettuce, and lamb bacon with a crystallized honey vinaigrette. - Chef Kerry Sear of Art

+ Two pasta dishes from Cantinetta: A sweet pea agnolotti with a carrot vinaigrette and a wild nettle brown butter and pine nut ravioli.

+ Sweet churned herb butter, rubarb mustard, Mangalista Pig whole hog sausage, a duo Copper River King and Sockeye Salmon crudo. Soft scrambled farm eggs from The Herbfarm.

Looks like you had a good time in Seattle, wish I could have been there. I'll put it on my event list for next year. I've shared the article with my facebook, netvibe and twitter pals.
