2010 Foodbuzz Blogger Festival




This past weekend, I had the great pleasure of attending the 2010 Foodbuzz Blogger Festival. Thanks to Foodbuzz and Lactaid, I won an all expense paid trip to this foodie wonderland. I got to meet many of the faces behind some of my favorite food blogs and enjoy exquisite food and wine! Although I tried to take as many picture as I could, most of the time I was enjoying the moment and taking in the whole experience. Here are some of the pictures I did get to take:


Mini cupcakes at the Herbst Pavilion.



Short ribs taco.....rich and tender!




My  favorite at the Herbst Pavilion, Korean Taco! Amazing!




Chef Mary Sue Milliken sharing her Alaska Seafood taco!




This poor guy sat on ice for hours! But the Alaska Seafood tacos at the Taste Pavilion were worth the long line!







This chantrelle mushroom soup was heavenly!



Red velvet cupcakes, with Foodbuzz edible logo! How cute....




My winning avocado vanilla bean smoothie at the Moovision table in the Taste  Pavilion



Me at the Moovision table.



The jalapeno jam was surprisingly delicious!






Josie, from Daydreamer Desserts.


There was wine.....LOTS of wine......



I got to sit and chat with Damaris during dinner!



I really dislike beets, but this beet tart somehow vanished from my dinner plate.




Rosemary and garlic infused rack of lamb. Served with mushrooms and a butternut squash purée.



A fabulous brunch, presented by Nature's Pride.



A few of the lovely ladies I got to meet!

We crossed paths for just one second in the beginning of the festival, so unfortunately, we didn't get a chance to chat. Looks like you had as much fun as the festival as we did though!
