Off to Eat. Write.Retreat in Philadelphia

May 27, 2013

I'll be hopping on a series of cross-country flights later this week to attend Eat.Write.Retreat in Philadelphia, where I'll be spending the weekend with foodie writers from across North America exploring great cooking, photography, products and writing... along with lots of eating, of course! And who wouldn't love a conference where you are greeted at check-in with welcome donuts (from Federal Donuts, who have the best website intro I've seen in years).

I'll be sharing my experiences here on Devour & Conquer and on my @devourNconquer twitter account throughout the weekend and in the months following, as we'll be stuffed with great information from top food writers, speakers and sponsors for three days straight.

I'm also looking forward to Saturday night's gala, where the winners of the Amazing Apps Culinary Challenge will be announced. I had a blast creating a new appetizer recipe - Sour Cream & Chive Potato Mini Buns, with my secret ingredient Potatoes and new kitchen tools provided by OXO. I can't wait to hear more what everyone else invented with their own mystery baskets. Here's a link to all the Amazing Apps entries, an impressive variety of new recipes created from four different mystery ingredients.

West coast to east coast, can't wait to be in the air and on my way to Eat.Write.Retreat. Updates coming soon...
