As a drink, I would be Champagne, bubbling and frothing over….
And if excitement was a condiment – it would definitely be Ginger jam – hot, sweet and warming all at once
A fragrance? For sure Vanilla – Simple. Fragrant. Earthy. Fruity.
I love blogging….from the bottom of my heart. Just having a place to winge talk about adventures gone wrong…. and those successful. I often wonder if blogging is counter intuitive – connecting with other people across geographic boundaries, a modern day pen-palling. A chance to learn, laugh and cry with people who you’ve never seen…some you’ll never see…but still we forge ahead. Glad we’ve found a place to share out stories, a ‘sphere to inspire and most of all comfort for our souls – we’re not alone in our love, in our passion, with our desires for FOOD.
And that Ladies and Gentlemen is the reason for my joy…’cause I’ll have the chance to meet some food bloggers in a matter of weeks at the Food bloggers connect conference!
WHERE: Levant Restaurant, London, W1 (serving delicious Lebanese cuisine)

1) Meeta from What’s For Lunch Honey: Meeta taught herself everything she knows about food styling and table-top photography for a food blog, evolving from the earliest days of her blog and progressing into one of the best. Many of us now turn to Meeta for advice and her blog has won recognition and awards for its content and food photos. She can speak from the perspective of someone who is not a professional photographer, but who is now well-known – and sought after – for her stunning pictures.
2) Kang from LondonEater will be talking about photography skills during low-lighting conditions: Which one of us hasn’t faced the ultimate brick wall of food photography – taking pictures of that perfect dish in dimly or artificially lit conditions? Kang has mastered that talent with ease – one look at the photography on his blog and you’ll be aching to find out his secrets, all of which he’ll be sharing with us on the night.
B) Writing Style & Voice:
2) Jamie from Life’s A Feast : Jamie’s writing makes us dream, makes us laugh and makes us fly.
