ETB attends IHHS & IACP…Take a Peek Inside!

This was published in 2014. I’m looking forward to attending again this year.

This year Eat The Burbs is ‘coming of age’ and what better way to transition from a collection of posts, restaurant reviews, and social media analytics/management team into a full fledged business than to attend 2 of the most anticipated food events of the year and network with other industry professionals.

We attended both the 2014 International Home and Housewares Show and the International Association of Culinary Professionals Book and Blog Festival.  As you can imagine both events were amazing.

We’ve included some pics below of our favorite new items from IHHS and some of the yummy bites from IACP.  We also met some pretty cool people in the food industry that weekend like Chef Rick Bayless, Ray Lampe – The BBQ doctor, and one of our Favorite Bloggers Mike from

Enjoy!! – Rachell
