BlogHer '11 Food and Hillshire Farms Video!

Friday, August 12, 2011

I said I was going to talk about it and I wasn't kidding. It just took me a little while to get organized! I learned so much at the BlogHer '11 conference it isn't funny. I have notes out the wahzoo. But before I go into anything I learned from the food photographer at Saveur magazine let me tell you a little about Hillshire Farms!

Hillshire Farms was at the conference, serving up samples of delicious food before giving bloggers the opportunity to make a video. I've shared the video on twitter and facebook, but had to wait to share it here until I came home.

Here is the video that Lindsay and I (I'm the one on the right with the du-rag) made from the Hillshire Farms booth at BlogHer:

I think we were pretty awesome together. I had no clue how to do a vlog type post and it was my first. I'm kind of proud of it. As you can tell though if you watched all the way through I messed up when I said that I ate a turkey club and tried to correct it real fast. I did have a turkey club the night before on my flight out at Wolfgang Puck's in Chicago. It was pretty good especially with the dijon sauce, but it was overpriced in my opinion. What I had at the Hillshire Farm "So Good Bistro" was the "No Responsibility Sunday", a strawberry lower sodium turkey wrap made with Hillshire Farm Deli Select Ultra Thin Lower Sodium Oven Roasted Turkey Breast. Boy was that a mouthful. In layman's terms it was a turkey wrap with spinach and strawberries. It was simple, elegant in presentation, and delicious. I actually preferred it to Wolfgang Puck's turkey club, but please don't tell him that!

I had a good time eating at BlogHer! The "So Good Bistro" was just a taste of the food I had. I ate at a booth for Michael Angelo's and let me tell you... Italian's know how to cook right. It's mama's food alright, comforting, quality, and fresh. I'll write more about them later. 

Tell me what you thought of the video Lindsay and I did... if I get enough responses in a good light I'll consider making more vlogs.
