A 'Buzz in the Air

If you are a regular reader of Food for Thought, you may have noticed that I recently became a Featured Publisher for Foodbuzz, a virtual community dedicated to the love of food. Last week, the virtual intertwined with the real as the Foodbuzz team hosted a Featured Publishers' dinner at the Slanted Door in the Ferry Building in San Francisco.

Over a delectable assortment of appetizers and entrées, I took the opportunity to meet the fabulous editorial staff at Foodbuzz, as well to chat with some of my fellow Bay Area food bloggers, including the authors of The Petite Pig, The Whole Wheat, Cheese N' Things, Taking the World Over One Bite at a Time, and Lunch in a Box.

I'd like to thank the gracious staff at Foodbuzz for putting together and hosting a fantastic event. I had a wonderful time and hope that there will be many more dinners with the Foodbuzz crew and other Bay Area bloggers soon!

Hey Loren, it was good meeting you and everyone else last week! I'm excited about what Foodbuzz is becoming; glad they took the initiative to get us all together.

It was so great to meet everyone at the dinner. Thanks for writing this post, Loren!

PS. I read your post about the egg clacker. Interesting stuff, I think I'm going to get one for my husband's birthday!

Biggie and Eatingplum: It was great to meet you as well. I am looking forward to becoming an active member of the Foodbuzz community.

The egg clacker is a pretty cool gadget - definitely useful if you want to make Arpège eggs.

I'm _definitely_ a big fan of the Clacker. My morning ritual isn't complete anymore without cleanly decapitated, er, clacked, soft boiled eggs and toast.

Can you please tell me where I can get an egg clacker?

Loren said...

Hi Ellen, my fiancee actually purchased the Egg Clacker for me. It was a while back, so she doesn't remember for certain where she got it, but she thinks that she bought the clacker from this store.
