One of the best parts about the Foodportunity networking event is bringing people who I admire together.
When I just began writing about food, all I wanted was to do was connect with people who inspire me and that is when I met Cynthia Nims.
She has written many books including authoring a book with Thierry Rautureau from Rover’s and Luc (the funniest chef in town). And she is incredibly down to earth and inspiring. It is such a pleasure to have them together at http://www.foodportunity. Thierry is hilarious and so incredibly talented and Cynthia has written many cookbooks including a must-have if you like to entertain called. “Gourmet Game Night” and “Salty Snacks” which has not been released yet. Here is my review of it. This one has been on my living room table for a while and even more lately since board games have been a way of bringing my family together after dinner. Today’s giveaway is a copy of Gourmet Game Night.‘
You can meet both Cynthia Nims and Chef Thierry Rautureau at Foodportunity. They will be available to meet guests and answer questions. Foodportunity is a food networking event that connects Seattle’s food industry. Come and eat from the best restaurants in town and taste from many local companies. Tickets on sale at Brown Paper Tickets for the June 25 event. More information here
Networking Tip of the Day: Talk to the person in the corner. At every event, there is a person standing in the corner of the room that might be having trouble talking to people. Go talk to that person. if You see someone alone, that is your chance to start up a conversation.
