Eat, Love, Sandals Culinary Conference in Jamaica

Eat, Love, Sandals Culinary Conference in Jamaica
From, by Jamie


Last year I teamed up with my dear friend, Kristan from Confessions of a Cookbook Queen to organize a small culinary conference and I’m sharing our trip with you today.

So let me tell the truth – Kristan and I had very little experience with organizing events, unless you count toddler birthday parties and family potlucks as experience. There were several moments over last year where I thought maybe we’d mutually gone insane. But after a year of planning and much help from the team at Sandals, I think we pulled it off. We wanted to create a gathering of a group of talented, driven women in a relaxing atmosphere to create an open dialogue that would allow us to learn from each other.

I make no secret of the fact that I have anxiety – especially in big crowds. I’ve attended food blogging conferences before, but I never get as much out of them as I’d like to, because I become overwhelmed very quickly, and have to retreat for some downtime. Kristan and I wondered, what if we created a retreat where downtime was one of the main goals? Could we get as much out of it?
