You are not going to be mad, are you? I mean, I am not coming to talk about soup or dessert, two things I actually love to prepare. But instead, let me tell you about a special event you might like. It is still very tasty, I promise.
Do you remember two years ago, when I was lucky to attend the International Food Styling and Photography Conference in Boston? It was so much fun — creative and rich in information. I remember how shy it felt for me to be there, amongst all the professional stylists and photographers — and how I felt so glad that my friend L. attended with me! I remember keeping my eyes and ears wide open in order to grab as much information as I could.
And I did.
They had already talked about another conference back then.
“In two years,” Lisa had told me when I asked. Deep inside, I was already looking forward to 2009.
Then, of course, I was also far from imagining that 2009 would bring me two other wonderful events: a beautiful baby daughter and a cookbook deal. Needless to say that je n’ai pas le temps de m’ennuyer, as we say in French. (I do not have time to get bored!)
But here it is. Two years later, the conference is about to take place again for the second time in Boston.
What I was far from imagining though is that I would be speaking this time. Another new reason for me to feel shy and nervous.
I will be part of a general discussion:
With Eugene Mopsik, Ilise Benun, Tim Foley, and Beatrice Peltre
