Big Summer Potluck
July 27-29, a group of 75 food bloggers will gather in rural Pennsylvania to eat, cook, laugh and learn. It’s the best little potluck of the summer.
In keeping with BSP tradition, we’re starting our weekend with a welcome dinner at the beautiful Anderson PA home. We’ll have drinks, food, and lots of great giveaways! The next day, in addition to our demos, talks, and activities, we’re setting up a fun photo booth, a pig roast dinner, and we’ll be listening to live bluegrass music. Hey, there may even be a bit of dancing under the stars! A Sunday waffle brunch caps off our weekend together. Come join us! register
