This weekend, California Endive will be co-sponsoring the blog conference event Eat, Write, Retreat 2011 at The Madison hotel inWashingtonDC.
Filled with unique and dynamic hands-on-learning workshops, the retreat includes photography sessions, panels on food styling and inspiring writing instruction.
For California Endive’s part, food bloggers will be invited to explore recipe development during 2-hour culinary workshops. Versatile and healthy, endive can be used in hors d’Oeuvre, salads, light lunches, dinner entrees and even deserts. Discover how to coax out endive’s various flavor profiles by learning variety of techniques from braising and sautéing to learning important knife skills like julienne and chiffonade.
Attendees will enjoy customized dining experiences, a guided tour of Capitol Hill and a “globally-inspired” three-course dinner. There will be a street festival and an opening reception featuring locally brewed ales and a Georgetown Cupcake Dessert Party. Each morning, bloggers can enjoy a full “American” breakfast in the Loews Palette restaurant while networking with like-minded professionals in the field.
It’s not too late to register, although space is limited. Take advantage of this wonderful opportunity to connect with your fellow “foodies,” hone your skills and challenge your senses.
