Foodie Roundup #21

Foodie Roundup #21

Foodie Roundup #21 - April 17th-23rd 2011

It’s Easter Sunday. A lazy Easter Sunday too, thankfully. A late breakfast with some awesome poached duck eggs, an afternoon sleep on the couch and an evening that features a bit of cooking and a DVD. Of course, one can’t forget the Galaxy easter egg chilling in the the freezer for later on.

Shifting is done and dusted, the evenings are coming back and with reading time back on my hands this week, it’s time for the 21st foodie roundup, a selection of ten blog posts from Irish food bloggers this past week that you may have missed.

Hope your Easter Sunday is treating you well!

From Plate To Page: Win Your Way To Germany

Everywhere I turn, there’s food writing opportunities coming up. I’d missed a course recently due to a clash with Scratcher (the show, not the actual dole) and reading the IFBA blog yesterday I spotted an awesome competition that will see two Irish food bloggers head to Germany for a few days in May for From Plate To Page, a European food bloggers event designed to improve your food photography and writing skills while networking with other European photographers and writers.

The initiative is being sponsored by Bord Bia, enabling an increase in awareness of Irish food and drink across Europe. While the prize, which includes flights, transfers, accommodation and meals, is fantastic, the competition process itself is a great one.

  • You need to write a blog post on Irish food, using Irish beef – with the context: why did you chose the dish, what does it mean to you, along with a recipe and photo.
  • Submit your link to irishfoodbloggers@gmail.com before March 31st
  • The top four blog posts get chosen with the respective bloggers taking part in a cook off at Cooks Academy in mid-April
  • The winners head for the residential workshop from May 20-23rd in Germany. Major win.

Maybe it’s time I pull out that steak dish I’ve been thinking of for an age. Get the full low down on the competition over at the Irish Food Bloggers Association.
