The Internet's premier food blogging event, Is My Blog Burning? has inspired an ever-growing number of culinary blog events, including the world's most popular virtual wine tasting Wine Blogging Wednesday.
So, it was only a matter of time before the two culinary juggernauts joined forces to create the ultimate culinary blogging event.
It is with great pleasure and excitement that IMBB's founder, Alberto and I announce that we are co-hosting the May editions of IMBB and WBW.
The dual theme?
It's the Fabulous Favorites Festival and it's taking place on Friday May 19 on a blog near you.
What is the Fabulous Favorites Festival exactly? It's a food and wine pairing event that, we hope, will attract the largest group of participants ever for any culinary blog event. For this one day at least, food bloggers will be "forced" to dive into the wine pool, while wine bloggers will have to uncork their cooking skills.
The concept is simple, with two plans of attack you can choose from.
- Pick a favorite bottle of wine from your cellar and create/cook a dish that goes with it.
- Pick a favorite dish in your culinary repertoire and seek out a wine that will pair will it.
Or, if you're feeling really ambitious, create an entire wine-pairing menu of favorites.
Alberto and I are both excited about this joint-venture...and we hope you are too.
Won't you join us?
