Food Blog South 2012 Recap Part 1


Friday after work I headed to Birmingham to go to Food Blog South with Kristen. Not sure what was going on with my camera in this photo. I know I have no tan but I’m not that white!


The pre-party was at Jim’N Nick’s in 5 Points. They had a complimentary appetizer bar then you could order dinner if you wanted anything.


They are known for their Cheese Biscuits and I can see why! They were extremely good!


I tried the Creamy Spinach & Artichoke Dip – scratch-made parmesan cream sauce, with spinach, artichokes, sour cream, jack cheese, and served with homemade pico de gallo and chips; Smoked Pork Hot Links; and Ham.

I had a glass of Crane Lake White Zin - Soft and fruity, medium-dry, with strawberries and peaches on the nose.

For dinner I ordered a small house salad with honey mustard dressing and a baked potato with sour cream, cheese and chives. Everything tasted great! They are opening in Tuscaloosa in March or April. I can’t wait!

  2. I love their dishes too! Small house salad is my favorite. It reminds me of our food back at home, at Suffolk county catering halls.

  3. I am going to the congerence this year. I am curious- what should I wear? Are jeans acceptable? Or is dressier better?

    1. I wore jeans, boots and cute top both Friday night and all day Saturday. It was not a dressy conference at all last year. I wish I was going again! I hope you have a great time!
