FBC 2014 in Vancouver – The Food

Last week I promised a food post to cover what I ate in Vancouver two weeks ago and I hope you’re ready.  There is going to be so much food here. Of course there were great eats at the conference, it was a food bloggers conference after all.  However I was also blessed to be able to stay with and visit my sister-in-law and her husband, who also share my love of food.  The whole weekend for me was full of amazing meals and I was very happy for the walk every day to and from the Four Seasons Hotel to help me burn some of those calories off.

I was going to do a top ten list but that is insane so I’m just going to start at the beginning, because I hear that is very good place to start.  Here are the photos of all the delicious things I am still thinking about two weeks later, from the beginning of the trip to the end.

So, not a lot of words this week.  I was going to share stories with each of the food pictures but that would make this post WAY too long so I thought I would let the food do all the talking.  Thanks to Vancouver and again to the Food Bloggers of Canada!  Here’s hoping I make it to Montreal for next year’s conference.
