A few weeks ago, I attended my first blogging event: The Kentucky Food Blogger Inaugural Dinner. Although I have enjoyed meeting other bloggers online, attending the Kentucky Food Blogger Inaugural Dinner, was by far the highlight of my blogging "career". Actually meeting other food bloggers face to face was amazing and we had such an amazing dinner that Alltech and Jonathan's at Gratz Park sponsored for us.
A few of us met downtown at the Big Blue Martini before heading over to Jonathan's for dinner. Although our Kentucky Food Blogger group has over 60 members now, only a few of us were able to attend the dinner. I tried to take some pictures of our amazing meal but I didn't capture the beauty of each dish.
Kentucky Food Blogger Inaugural Dinner Menu
· Kentucky Bourbon Barrel Ale Beer Cheese on Fried Cornbread (I didn't get a pictures of this)
· Pearse Lyons Reserve – Molasses Marinated Alltech Angus Flank Steak with Arugula & Crispy Sweet Potatoes:· Shrimp Corn Dogs, Kentucky Ale Beer Battered Fried Shrimp with Hot Mustard:
· Grilled Alltech Angus Ribeye with Horseradish Creamed Collard Greens (I didn't get a picture of this)
· Bluegrass Sundown Chocolate Pot Pie with Jonathan’s Vanilla Bean Ice Cream:
Not only did I get to indulge in this decadent meal, we each received one of Jonathan's cookbooks, signed by Jonathan. I can't wait to make some of his yummy recipes! Lori and Mindy worked so hard at getting this event put together and also contacting local businesses to donate door prizes and items for a swag bag that each attendee received.
