Even though the sun was not shining brightly last night, local foodies, tweeples, bloggers, and facebook friends gathered to cheer on Keren Brown's book launch party. Her first book, "Food Lovers Guide to Seattle" is dedicated to local restuarants, pubs, bars, bakeries, and hottest eats. Plus, it includes recipes from Seattle's top chefs.
Who is Keren Brown? She first made her mark as "frantic foodie" with her fun and exciting blog, gathered friends on twitter (@franticfoodie and @foodloversea), and started Food Blogger events in the Pacific Northwest, as well as Foodportunity, a networking event business to help people network within the food industry. Keren also writes for the Seattle PI and Mynorthwest.com. Whew! What a busy mother and wife!
The party was held in Shilshole Bay Beach Club in Ballard. The event was filled with local restaurants, vendors, and bakeries sharing treats for Keren's event. I loved fonte's coffee bar, Google's fun red pens, and blackboard bistro's pork sliders. Plus theo chocolate's newest chocolate bar flavors were out for sample! What a fun food filled event. I even ran into some foodies I first met at cakespy's "cake versus pie" event!
Being a big food lover and appreciater, I can't wait to try MORE new places found in Keren's book. Buy and use it a resource to try new fun, tasty food!
