*The cost of registration for all participants is $395. However, new in 2013, for food bloggers with an active blog who agree to write at least three posts about the conference, the cost is only $95. You can choose to write about anything you want - the conference itself, the venue, the sponsors, or the food - and can do so before, during, or immediately after the conference. This is our way of supporting food bloggers as you attempt to make a living (or cut costs from) your food blogging.

Is it a blog or is it a business? Speaker Mark Briggs shares his entrepreneurial journalism presentation from Friday, September 20 at IFBC. Get the transcription here.



Amazon Grocery will be sampling niche, specialty, or hard-to-find products, ranging from chocolate to coconut water. Each brand will have around five minutes to give a short explanation of their product and answer questions while you review, blog, and tweet about the product. After five minutes, a new brand will take the stage.

Below you’ll find all the information you need during Live Blogging. Don’t forget to log into your customer account so you can quickly write customer reviews. Tweet us at @amazon and hashtag #IFBC.

LoSalt is the healthiest secret ingredient to reducing you sodium intake!

We all love adding a little bit of salty flavour to our food, but feel guilty afterwards, worried about the affect of sodium on our health. LoSalt - a great tasting and natural salt alternative - is the perfect solution for those of us who love that salty flavor. It contains 66% less sodium than regular table, sea and rock salts with all the same flavour. Everyone who tries it exclaims “I can’t believe it tastes just like salt!”

Excessive salt (sodium chloride) consumption is a major health issue as it increases the risk of developing high blood pressure, which affects a third of American adults (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention). High blood pressure, in turn, is responsible for 62% of all strokes and 49% of all heart diseases according to the World Health Organisation. Using LoSalt allows you to maintain the salty flavor but with 66% less sodium.

It is simply a blend of potassium chloride and sodium chloride – no chemical masters or flavour enhancers are used as with other alternatives so there is none of that “funky chemical” or “medicinal” aftertaste.

LoSalt is available in both Iodized and non-Iodized versions and is Kosher and Halal certified, as well as being gluten free and free from allergens.

We are coming all the way from Scotland to be with you at this year’s IFBC, discussing the importance of salt health, the impact of too much sodium on our heart health and more information on LoSalt and how you can get involved to help us promote salt health. You will also be able to get your blood pressure checked - maybe it’s time for you to switch a LoSalt diet!

And soon we will be talking all about LoSalt and salt health during the holiday season, providing healthier Thanksgiving alternatives for the #LoSaltHolidays!

Before the conference please visit the LoSalt Website, or interact with us on our Facebook and Twitter pages.

 At family-owned La Panzanella Artisanal Food Co., our passion is crackers.  Since we first began baking our rustic, all natural Croccantini at a local cafe in Seattle’s Capitol Hill neighborhood, we have been lucky to have a loyal and enthusiastic following.  First embraced by Seattle’s most acclaimed restaurants, our crackers are now part of family meals, snacks and celebrations across the country.  

We are thrilled to have the occasion of IFBC 2013 to announce the launch of Croccantini Creations, our Facebook-based forum for sharing our customers’ passion for Croccantini.  Visit us on Facebook to see the latest posts and at the conference on Saturday to sample our new Multigrain Croccantini.  

Make the most of fresh heirloom cherry tomatoes with Chevre, crumbled bacon bits, and fresh tarragon and basil leaves (shown above).

Salty sweet book club treat: Mini Croccantini dipped in dark chocolate. Perfect to pair with Cabernet and strawberries. We made ours with Rosemary Minis.
