Being a food blogger is super terrific. But it can get lonely here in front of the computer regardless of how many friends you have online.

This is why I have joined an online community of food bloggers called Foodbuzz a few months ago. Then I discovered that as a Foodbuzz Featured Publisher I can coordinate a dinner with other local food bloggers and Foodbuzz will pay for it. All I have to do is post about it. How cool is that?

So, of course that’s what I did.

Last night I got to meet 10 other food bloggers from the Seattle area at Brasa in downtown Seattle for a Foodbuzz Featured Publisher’s feast.

Brasa, is a wonderful restaurant serving Spanish/Mediterranean cuisine. I have dined there a few times before, and even attended a wedding there. We always had a great time, the food is wonderful – either in the dining room or the lounge, and the service is always so fantastic and very very professional.

Oh, and last night we had a visit at our table from the chef/owner Tamara Murphy – remember her competing on Iron Chef America against chef Mario Batali? – who just came back from a big pig event and was all excited abut it.

So, Now I’ll shush and let the photos speak for themselves. Feast your eyes on our dinner party.
