One of my other new year’s resolutions is to make time — and space in my budget — to improve my blogging chops. Education isn’t cheap, especially when you’re learning from the pros, but the classes I took in 2009 were some of the highlights of my year. I met cool groups of like-minded folks, had a great excuse to travel, and enjoyed delicious food along the way.
Hands down my favorite learning experience of 2009 was the Food Styling and Photography class taught by the Food Fanatics — Cindie Flannigan and Denise Vivaldo — and Matt Armendariz. Happily for those of us in the Bay Area, the Food Fanatics are headed our way this month, teaching a hands-on, full weekend class at The Art Institute San Francisco on January 16 & 17.
Denise tells me there are a couple of spots left, so head on over to their site and check out the details. If you’re a food blogger, it’s probably even a tax write-off. And it’s sure to be a blast.
