I have to admit that when the let's just give this a try idea for Is My Blog Burning appeared on my blog over two years ago I hardly suspected that so many would follow suit, in an explosion of gastronomic blogging events for all tastes. To be honest with you, I was almost surprised to see those first brave bloggers join me on the first edition of IMBB? One of the first events to follow suit was Wine Blogging Wednesday, born from the mind of Lenn over at Lenndevours; WBW has gone a long way from its first baby steps, becoming the best virtual wine blogging event out there. I love to peek at the bottles the various blogger choose for each edition, often discovering wines unknown on this side of the pond.
This month Is My Blog Burning and Wine Blogging Wednesday have decided to join efforts: Lenn and me are bringing you the Fabulous Favorites Festival taking place on Friday May 19.
What is the Fabulous Favorites Festival exactly, you might ask? As my granddad liked to say, wine and food should always go together and so we are asking you to:
1. Pick a favorite bottle of wine from your cellar and create/cook a dish that goes with it.
2. Pick a favorite dish from your collection and seek out a wine that will pair with it.
and if you're feeling particularly brave, or maybe want to impress someone and blog about it at the same time you could always 3. create an entire wine-food pairing menu for the event. If you do you'll have us all in awe, I promise.
We hope that we'll encourage the cooks among you to have a go at the corkscrew and tasting glass and similarly to see a couple of you wine experts
drop, lay aside, your precious Riedels and pick up a pan.
Join us on Friday May 19 for the biggest and wildest wine and food pairing seen on the blogsphere!
... and while you are at it don't forget to buy some extra bread for IMBB25: Give us this day yesterday's bread hosted by Derrick at An Obsession with Food this coming week-end.
