On Saturday, I got to spend the day with an absolutely terrific and energetic group of food bloggers at the first-ever TECHmunch food blogger workshop. The workshop was put together by food blog royalty Babette from Bakespace and Jaden Hair from Steamy Kitchen and co-produced by Natanya from Fête and Feast.
I was thrilled to finally meet several people with whom I'd previously only interacted online, and I picked up tons of great tips for being a better blogger. Afterwards, we mingled while sipping cocktails and nibbling fantastic food by the super-talented Shawn Cirkiel of Parkside.
Thanks to a VERY full weekend, I have more photos than I have energy, so I'll let my a few of my shots from the day do the talking:
A full house in Parkside's lovely second floor space
Our very own Austin Twitter bird kept hanging around outside the window tweeting
Salmon belly, pineapple, mint & green onion soup spoon bites
More soup spoon bites - with lentil salad, cucumber, apples, and harissa
These little croustade cups were delightful - filled with mascarpone, asparagus, and smoked tomato vin
De-luscious seared New York strip with peanuts, cilantro, and a drizzle of soy-ginger sauce
Totally addictive cauliflower dish - carmelized with chili, citrus, and Thai basil.
(if all veggies tasted like this, I would be the healthiest woman alive)
For dessert - an army of scrumptious Sugar Mama's cupcakes!
My Bakespace Martini - girly, without being too sweet (strawberry Stoli, lime juice and cava)

A huge thanks to Babette, Jaden and Natanya for putting together an absolutely fantastic event, and to Parkside for hosting us. It was a wonderful day!
