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 FĂȘte 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)

Marshall Wright of Eat This Lens doing what food bloggers do best

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!


  1. How great! It really was a fantastic afternoon. And the food was delish.

    I have photos up on my blog, too. And I'm giving away my swag bag to someone that couldn't make it to the event!

  2. I was too slow on the uptake for the Cauliflower Dish and they ran out - now I'm especially bummed. It looks delicious!

  3. I want one of those martinis and that califlower recipe!

  4. great photos and a great event.
