Food Blog Forum Orlando 2015

Food Blog Forum Orlando 2015 was an amazing experience to fill your mind and heart, increasing your knowledge on blogging and allowing the opportunity to explore Walt Disney World in the process, the ultimate source for creativity.

Chocabaret is the hottest idea to come out of New York City in a long time! The brainchild of the singing Chef Jackie Gordon, it combines a cabaret performance with a chocolate tasting–or, as she calls it, eatertainment. There will be songs, big laughs, and even an educational component. You’ll …
