Tell us why you would like to take part with FBC again this year!
We participated last year and it worked well! We got a lot of brand exposure on FBC social media and the website and look forward to FBC14!
As a returning partner, is there a particular item you will be showcasing again or for the first time this year?
We will be showcasing our key cookbook this year ‘Bread on the Table‘ in a leaflet for the bloggers!
Are there any food writers/chefs who you believe are under-appreciated and deserve more attention?
Valerie O’ Connor food writer and baker deserves more attention as she is an exciting member of the food community in Ireland trying to persuade people to go back to baking their own bread and the importance of using locally sourced organic food.
How has social media helped your authors connect and engage more with a wider audience and particularly bloggers?
Valerie O’Connor is extremely active on social media! She is an active user of Twitter and Instagram as well as runs her own excellent blog, we have been able to tap into this to publicise her new book ‘Bread on the Table’ and will be sharing it with bloggers at #FBC14.
What positive effect are food, travel, or lifestyle bloggers having on the industry?
Food bloggers mean more support and publicity for new food writers and chefs.
If you could tell people to eat one thing more often what would it be and why?
Bread! Because it’s not bad for you when it’s baked right!
