Thursday Three – Bindaetteok, Food Blog Conferences, and EJL

Hey, how’s it going? Here are three things that have been on my mind this week.

1 – How to make bindaetteok

Do you love bindaetteok (mung bean pancakes)? My latest how-to video is on my YouTube channel. Click here for the original post and full recipe.

2 – 2013 Food blogger conferences

Are you a food blogger? There are quite a few food blog conferences happening in the next several months. The newest one being…

FOOD & WINE CONFERENCE sponsored by Sunday Supper.  Yes, the same Sunday Supper group that I’ve been a part of this past year. The conference will be held in Orlando, FL from July 19-21. I’m also helping out with the planning of the conference! FUN is definitely guaranteed! :-)

3 – EJL / Flourish in Progress

Elizabeth Jayne Liu (EJL) is the voice behind Flourish in Progress. Her piece that was published in HuffPo titled “Her Father, My Father” was the piece that got me hook, line, and sinker, and I’ve been following her ever since. I was immediately drawn to her honesty and freshness in her writing. Pay her a visit…she curses like a sailor, but she’s really nice…I promise.

    I love your how to videos Amy, so awesome.
    Can’t wait until the Food & Wine Conference this summer – it’s going to be the BEST!
    And curses like a sailor? Right up my alley – my daughter IS a sailor. hahaha anyway, I gave the one piece a read and … wow. I’m hooked. :) Thanks for mentioning “EJL”

      Hi Nicole – This conference is going to be awesome! I love the line up of speakers! AND it’ll be fun (and surreal) to meet fellow Sunday Supper folks! So does your daughter curse like a sailor?? 😉

  • Alice Choi

    Amy, what a great post! so, are you attending the Food & Wine conference in FL? I SO wish I could go but that’s too close to our family vacation trip.
    and love the shout out for Elizabeth! :)

    • kimchi_mom

      I’m going to try to attend! It’s not easy trying to coordinate with the husband’s work schedule!

  • Nancy

    I am so in awe of your videos, Amy! So professional and informative. Keep them up, lady! I really really REALLY wish I could attend the Food & Wine Conference. It’s going to kill me missing the opportunity to meet you and the rest of our Sunday Supper gang. Will you be making it to the IFBC in Seattle? Alice and I are going – it’d be amazing if you were there too!

    • kimchi_mom

      Hey Nance! As much as I want to attend IFBC, I don’t think I can make it! I can barely make conferences that take place in NYC which is a train ride away for me. One day I hope to meet you guys IRL! :-)

  • Miss Kim

    Thanks for sharing the list. I am new to the food blogosphere. I was not qualified for the conference in Orlando (since it requires that you had to have been blogging for a minimum of three months). But I look forward to the conference in Big Bear (if I can). I have never been to any of these food blogging conferences. What are they like?

    • kimchi_mom

      HI MIss Kim! Welcome to the world of blogging! I’ve only been to one conference and that was Big Summer Potluck a couple of years ago. It was nice and intimate so it was easy to get to know the other attendees as well as the speakers. I felt it was a good one to attend because it was small and less intimidating. I have heard good things about Camp Blogaway. You can’t go wrong with any of the ones listed above! Here’s my write up on my experience at BSP:
