Out of the Frying Pan...

and into the...just kidding.

Last year, The Melbourne Food and Wine Festival's Out of the Frying Pan conference seriously overlooked one important aspect of food writing; the New Media, bloggers in particular.

This year, things seem to have taken a turn for the better. Stephanie, Jackie and Ed are among the panel speaking about the ins and outs, successes and failures of blogging life and Ed is giving away freebie tickets (that are disappearing fast) for any interested bloggers.

Follow this link if you're free on Monday March the 3rd and interested (last year's was great, by the way, despite 'our' notable absence) - interstate bloggers are encouraged to get on board, too!

See ya there.

I'm so glad I stumbled upon your blog. I just spent the past half hour going through your recipe file and you have so many gluten-free posts! Maybe not intentionally, but I feel like I found a gold mine nonetheless. Yeah, that is so wonderful. Quinoa, millet, buckwheat. I'm a long way from Melbourne, but I do have a lovely Aussie houseguest staying with me from Brisbane. You people do know how to enjoy life!
Thank you and I'll be back.

Lucy, shame I didn't have the idea earlier but it was only after Sarah and AOF emailed me. Great to have you coming and thanks for posting about it. See you Monday week.

Hi Melissa - a warm welcome to you! We don't have any specific gluten-problems 'round here, but eat a wide variety of grains in the hope that we don't develop any issues later on. Millet and quinoa (oddly enough, that's what's on the spoon...) are real favourites. Even the dog hoes right on in...

No problem at all Ed - I was going anyway, so am pleased that there's a strong contingent of bloggers getting on board.

Sounds like such a great event--wish I could attend! (But I guess it would be difficult for me to make it back home by March 4th, even with the time change!!). Hope you have a wonderful time and can't wait to read about it.

Sounds like a great event Lucy, but the commute could present a problem. Look forward to your report!
What is that on your spoon? Baby noodles?
