StonybrookOn Thursday, October 20th Derrick of An Obsession With Food and I will be leading a discussion about food and wine blogging at the Stony Brook University Center for Wine, Food, and Culture.

The agenda isn’t set yet, but we’ll be talking about how we got into blogging, why and how it has helped us snare some "real" writing gigs. Derrick met The Center’s director Louisa Thomas Hargrave at a wine writer’s symposium in the spring and I’ve talked to her on several occasions locally…so this session brings the three of us together.

It promises to be a fun evening, which will include food and wine pairings as well. And, I’m looking forward to meeting Derrick and his wife, Melissa, as well as introducing them Long Island wines during their visit.

For more information and to sign up, call Ginny Clancy at (631) 632-9404. I hope to see some of you there.
