Gluten-Free Love at the food blogger conference

Last Saturday I went to a food blogger conference, called BlogHer Food, in San Francisco. This is a niche group to say the least – first you have bloggers, then food bloggers. But even more of niche? Gluten-free food bloggers! Yes, we were there in force (all 10 of us!)

I should clarify that I don’t qualify as a “food blogger.” I’m not creating new recipes in my kitchen every day, I’m not writing a cookbook, and I don’t take 500 million photographs of my food with an expensive camera (although I’m working on taking like, one or two photos of my food creations with the camera I already own). I wish I could be more like some food bloggers who dine out all the time and write about it, but it doesn’t really fit with my schedule right now (or my wallet). Instead, I consider myself a guide, a teacher, a gatherer and sharer of information about living gluten-free and allergen-free. At the center of it all, of course, is food. Which brought me to the food blogger conference and gave me a chance to meet some of the “food bloggers” who have helped me and inspired me in my own gluten-free journey.

Why am I telling you this? Because I want to introduce you to the fabulous women that I had a chance to meet in real life. They were all so nice! And so… life-like!

So here they are, the gluten-free gals… please visit their blogs!

This was the first annual conference of its kind. Hopefully there will be another one! In the meantime, I need to get to work on some new recipes. Or not.
