Win a Spot at the Fabulous Food Show!

I've got a "fabulous" and unique giveaway for one lucky person this week. One of our city's own acclaimed authors, Laura Taxel, will be partnering with Dianne Jacob to offer an interesting workshop at the upcoming Fabulous Food Show at the IX Center. The 5th annual show is being held from Friday, November 12th through Sunday, November 14th. Taxel's session is closed for chefs and other industry professionals on Friday, but the Saturday session is open to the public. And...they have generously reserved one spot at the Saturday session for a Bite Buff reader!

Read more about the session...

Do you dream of writing a cookbook or blog? Award winning food journalist and author of Cleveland Ethnic Eats Laura Taxel, and writing coach Dianne Jacob, who's book Will Write For Food is the definitive and highly acclaimed guide to all forms of culinary writing show you how. They are leading workshops on Friday and Saturday morning, November 12 & 13 at the Fabulous Food Show in Cleveland Ohio. Get practical tips and real world guidance on getting started, doing it well, and what it takes to get published and get readers. The interactive 2-hour sessions will demystify the process of writing and selling a book and explore the pros, cons, and steps for launching and maintaining a food blog, plus advice on how to improve your food writing skills. The Friday workshop is strictly for chefs and other professionals. The Saturday version is for the general public. Tickets are $50, include all day admission to the Show, and must be purchased in advance. More info about the presenters and the class on the show website.

So you can learn "tips of the trade" from experts, improve your own writing skills, and increase traffic to your blog- all while enjoying a pass to the Fabulous Food Show! If you have never attended the show, I've heard that it is a foodie's dream. You can learn cooking techniques from world-renown chefs (including our own Michael Symon), collect recipes, shop, and of course...sample fantastic food and wine.

All you have to do to win the pass to the Fabulous Food Show and the spot in the Saturday workshop session is leave a comment on this post expressing your interest. I'll pull a winner on Tuesday, November 2nd. Good luck!

How exciting! BF and I have gone for the past two years. We went right after we started dating and wish to continue the tradition this year! However, money is SO tight right now, so I'm crossing my fingers that we win tickets! :)
