The Food + Wine Conference is an annual conference held in Orlando, Florida. This three-day conference is organized each year by Founder Isabel Laessig and an amazing committee. Hosted by the Family Foodie and the Sunday Supper Movement.
It was honor to be selected to represent The Food and Wine Conference by being a Brand Ambassador for one of the many incredible sponsors; Premier Beverage who distributes St. Augustine Distillery and Hess Select. Premier Beverage is one of the largest distributors of wines, spirits and other beverages in Florida. Go and check them out and give them some love.
Welcome Reception was sponsored by Florida Strawberry Growers Association and St. Augustine Distillers with an amazing cocktail and chocolate masterpieces created by Rosen Hotels amazing Chef David Ramirez.
We all had some craft time making our very own sugar scrubs sponsored by Dixie Crystals.
Yes, there was a lot of food. What else would you expect from a conference titled Food and Wine? But that was just the start.
More brand love!
I can’t forget the Poutine lunch that was sponsored by Idaho Potatoes and Wisconsin Cheese. Six delicious variations of poutine.
It doesn’t stop there, Certified Angus Beef prepared a divine family-style dinner on Saturday night. The tender New York Strip steak with confit of garlic, chimichurri, gator drool braised collard greens, asparagus with béarnaise sauce, roasted fingerling potatoes and horseradish sweet potatoes with honey butter. Drooling yet? Just look at that meal!
I had such amazing time meeting fellow blogging friends and making new friends as we all joined in a weekend of learning, food, wine and lots of fun. Lots of notes were taken during the various sessions available lead by seriously talented people. If you are a blogger or brand and would like to be a part of next year’s Food and Wine Conference, keep an eye on their website for the announcement of next year’s dates. You’ll be thankful you did!

Making memories around the kitchen table and capturing them with my camera is where you’ll find me. Unless I’m boarding a plane or on a road trip somewhere with my girls.
