International Food Blogger’s Conference – Portland

IFBC 2012

I recently attended (as in “last weekend” recently) the International Food Blogger’s Conference here in Portland and had a great time. There was a lot of food, wine, bloggers, and informational sessions. I took some pictures.

During the first day, there was a Live Blogging (or tweeting) session with Travel Oregon. Some of my favorite tastes of the day were from this event. Happyrock Coffee Roasting, Straw Propeller Oatmeal, Pfriem Artisinal Brewery and Olympic Provisions (duh) were among my absolute favorites. Oh yeah and we got monkey hats from Mail Chimp at the after party Saturday night, so there was that too.

Chehalem Inox Chardonnay — I liked it with jalapenos. And just on its own.

This was vegan and pretty good — but I did have my marshmallow top fall on the floor and bounce away…

Everyone was fairly in awe of the pig head. Lots of photo-taking. Well, probably not the vegans.
