After spending an incredible four days in Seattle at the IFBC and meeting so many Doristas, I have been going over all the goodies and information that was given to us. I will be reporting on all of the suppliers and their products, plus our wonderful Saturday dine-around that was sponsored by Urban Spoon. The highlight of the whole conference (other than meeting the Doristas) was of course meeting Dorie Greenspan and her lovely husband Michael.
The IFBC, Seattle, the Doristas (each and every one of you !!!), and of course Dorie and her amazing hubby Michael - all EXCEEDED my expectations. Normally on French Friday's I find that I fare better when my expectations about a recipe are low - the old "inverse relationship" thing. But I was so excited going into the event that I couldn't help myself. My already high hopes were exceeded with a wonderful experience that was "off the charts" on every level. Yes, it was THAT fabulous. I am still smiling from ear to ear and like Nana, look forward to posting more details in the near future. I would also like to send a thanks to the Doristas who did not make the event and yet sent us wonderful comments about our attending- you all are THE BEST and we look forward to meeting ALL of our FFWD friends in the future.
Now...... that pudding.
Oh my. Perfect time of year and perfect recipe. I don't usually make homemade pudding so initially thought the cooking time sounded like a long time- yet it did move quickly and smelled delicious.
Happy French Friday !
