BLOG OF THE MOMENT: I Eat Therefore I Am
As I’m sure most of you are aware the Melbourne Food and Wine Festival has just begun. Between the 22nd of February and the 8th of March Melbourne celebrates with a huge range of food events, seminars, tastings and special lunches and dinners throughout the city.
As I have just found out from Ed at Tomato, this year there are a special series of sessions, one of which is Out of the Frying Pan, an all day talk fest that will enlighten listeners on future trends in food, restaurants and the media. The program suggests that blogging is going to invoke some detailed discussion as the work and presence of bloggers is finally being recognised as important in the industry. Some of the fantastic panellists in this session include Ed Charles from Tomato, leading food critic Matt Preston, and Fairfax writer/ blogger Stephanie Wood. There will be sessions devoted to future food and future media, as well as a dedicated session on how to blog, and how not to blog.
The day will be divided into four sessions, with choices available and the ticket price also includes lunch, with a glass of wine, coffee tastings and a showbag.
If you are interested in attending this event check out the Melbourne Food and Wine Festival event page here.
I recommend checking out the program as there are many sessions of interest ranging from: food writing and media, restaurant designs and trends, waiters: selling or serving; featuring head staff from leading Melbourne restaurants, as well as a dedicated session on the future of drinking.
Out of the Frying Pan is on Monday February 3. Tickets for this full-day event are available for $135 and can be purchased from Ticketmaster.
I look forward to attending the event, and hopefully meeting some fellow bloggers and foodies. It should be a great day.
Thanks to Ed for posting about this event and arranging free tickets for 20 bloggers. You can read Ed’s original post here.
Until later, happy eating.
