On July 31st, I’ll have the honour of hosting the 17th edition of the food blogging phenomenon Is My Blog Burning? Created by the eminent Alberto of Il Forno, IMBB brings together dozens of bloggers from around the world each month to cook dishes with a common theme.
The event has been the inspiration behind many other wonderful food blogging events including Sugar High Fridays, Wine Blogging Wednesdays, Paper Chef, Does My Blog Look Good in This? and of course the eccentric End of Month Egg on Toast Extravaganza.
For July, I’m delighted to announce that the theme will be… tasteTea!
Let me clarify. tasteTea, as in a tasty dish of your choice prepared with tea.
Any dish or drink that’s made with tea qualifies. On the weekend of July 31st, simply post an entry about your tasteTea dish on your blog, and e-mail me a link to it at firstname.lastname@example.org. Beginning August 1st, I’ll profile 10-15 entries each day until we’ve looked at them all. Hopefully this will give each entry a bit more exposure than normal, and will prevent me from going insane if there are many entries.
Everyone, whether you’re a food blogger or not, is welcome and encouraged to participate. If you need a place to post your entry, I’d be glad to host it for you.
For many of us, tea is very much a ritual in our lives. Often it’s not so much about the tea itself, but the events with which we associate tea with. As an optional part of this month’s IMBB, I’d like to invite you to share with us your own tea rituals and experiences. Depending on the number of participants, I’ll either link to your entry as part of the main round-up or do a separate mini tea rituals round-up.
I’m very excited about hosting this month’s IMBB, and I look forward to reading everyone’s entries. If you have any questions, please feel free to e-mail me or leave a comment.
Now, let's get brewing!
