One of my favorite parts of being involved in Krusteaz Baker's Dozen is the annual trip to Seattle to visit the Krusteaz facility and the IFBC conference. The International Food Bloggers Conference (IFBC) was my very first conference that I ever went to. I was able to connect with other food bloggers, brands, and the other members of the Baker's Dozen team!
This year was no exception. I was able to meet more of the new 360 pr company members and spend time at the Krusteaz facility and at the conference. This year when I got there and had a few hours to eat at a Seattle pizza joint that I had eaten at last year Serious Pie and I ate a yummy mushroom and truffle cheese pizza.
The next morning before I headed to the Krusteaz headquarters I stopped by Bakery Nouvea and tried a few different items. My favorite was the twice baked almond croissant and the banana bread.
That morning we headed down to Krusteaz headquarters and got a tour of their building and then headed to the kitchen to have a little fun baking with their products. My group was given their flatbread line and we were assigned to make lunch for everyone. We decided to make 4 different kinds of flatbreads. We did a meat lovers with mushrooms and peppers with a red sauce, a chicken alredo pizza with spinach and tomatoes, a BBQ chicken pizza with purple onions, corn, and pineapple, and a veggie lovers pizza.
Then we all attended an amazing mobile photography class where we learned new tricks for taking pictures and editing them with our phone taught by Todd Coleman. What an great informational class.
After that I headed to Pike's Place and ate some greek yogurt from Elleno's Greek yogurt. Both times that I have gone there I have gotten marionberry pie! It is to die for!
And then Beechers mac n cheese. It is unreal! Get the biggest size they have. I didn't and am still sad about it! They also sell their cheeses and a take home mac n cheese kit!
The next morning we attended the IFBC. Krusteaz hosted a fun cookie exchange party and we did some crafting and made little take home gifts to stuff with cookies to share with friends at the conference. It was such a fun event and everyone there loved it and had a great time! You can find the printables from the event here at Hostess with the Mostess.
What a fun an amazing time at the conference and spending time with Krusteaz Baker's Dozen members! I am lucky to be part of such a fun amazing group!
