Canadian Beef wants to help you Eat, Write, Retreat

At Canadian Beef, we love food bloggers. You, who take our delicious roasts and create Wino’s Burgundy Pot Roast, or turn our flavorful chuck into Comfort Beef Stew. Talented food bloggers help Canadian Beef shine, and today we’d like to return the favour.

Canadian Beef has partnered with Eat, Write, Retreat, the fabulous food blogging conference in Washington DC to create five (yes, FIVE!) scholarships for Canadian bloggers to attend. Eat, Write, Retreat is an intensive, hands-on weekend designed to help food bloggers take their work to the next level. Workshops in the culinary arts, creative writing, food styling and photography are interspersed with dynamic dining events, demonstrations and valuable networking sessions. The event is all-inclusive which means a scholarship provides access to all programs and events, as well as luxury hotel accommodations and all the scrumptious food and drink you can fit into a weekend. Just a little “Thank You” from all of us at Canadian Beef.

Read on for complete details on how to enter. The first scholarship will be awarded on Tuesday, March 8, and then the following four Tuesdays. The sooner you enter, the better your chances of winning. So get a mooooove on and good luck!

  2. I “almost” wish I was a Canadian Resident to apply for the scholarship and attend this amazing conference :) But, then, there is all that snow that California doesn’t have!

    good luck everyone!

  4. This sounds like a lot of fun. I wonder if there will be Canadian Beef available? I think I’d go into withdrawal, perhaps a meatball in the carry-on would be a wise choice.

  5. So much beef so little time. Had a blast writing my post. I hope there is Canadian Beef in Washington for whoever wins. I’d hate for anyone to go into withdrawal. My suggestion, a meatball in the carry-on.

  6. Love this contest. Lets hope they serve Canadian Beef in Washington. Can you go into Canadian Beef withdrawal? My suggestion to whoever wins, meatball in your carry-on.

  7. Who would have thought vitamin D in beef. I should be the D-iest guy around. Can you go into canadian beef withdrawal? My sugestion to whoever wins, pack a meatball in your carry-on. Good luck everyone.
