Food, Wine, and Friends … Orlando 2014

One week from today marks the start of the Food and Wine Conference being held in Orlando, Florida. I am excited to attend for the first time! The Food and Wine Conference brings together food writers, bloggers, culinary students, wine and food brands to talk about what’s new in the food world.

As a brand ambassador for the Food and Wine Conference weekend, I was thrilled to learn that I would be partnered with Cabot Cheese for the event! As a New England girl, I didn’t know there was cheddar cheese other than Cabot cheddar until I was about 18. It was definitely a family fridge staple. Cabot Cheese is sponsoring an afternoon snack break for the Food and Wine Conference attendees on Saturday and I can’t wait to see what they have for us to snack on. (First peek will be on my Instagram, I assure you…)

As this week wraps down, I will leave you with a code for $50 off a Food and Wine conference pass and a couple of my favorite Cabot recipes.
