Blogher Food Conference 2009
We got to San Francisco on Friday afternoon. We met up with my roomie, Megan, fromMegan’s Cookin and toured the city. Of course most of our touring involved food:) Our first stop was Tartine Bakery. We drooled over the fabulous tarts, breads, scones, and cookies. Josh ordered a ham and cheese sandwich and Megan got a lemon bar to go, I was saving up for our next stop, which was Bi-Rite Creamery.
I split an ice cream cone with Josh. We had a scoop of Salted Caramel and Cinnamon ice cream with snickerdoodle cookie chunks. Both flavors were outstanding!
Our next stop was theFerry Building. We took our time and purused through the fun foodie shops. My visit wouldn’t of been complete without stopping at Miette. I enjoyed my favorite macaron, hazelnut.
Friday night we went toPauline’s Pizza with a large group of food bloggers. There were 18 of us, so too many to list, but our table was filled with fabulous company. We ordered salad, breadsticks, and veggie and meat pizzas to share. Pauline’s grows their own vegetables, greens, and fruits, so everything was very fresh. I really liked the eggplant and the pesto pizza.
Saturday was the big day! It was fun meeting my blogging friends in person. Everyone was fantastic. Food bloggers really are the most kind, genuine, sweetest people. I also learned a lot from the speakers/expert bloggers. I attended presentations about photography, blogging best practices, finding your voice, etc. The information was extremely helpful. I have a lot of work to do on my blog:)
