After a month jam packed full of cherry and berry recipes in July, it’s time for August’s #FoodYearLinkup. I have to admit that I had been a little worried for my little linkup in August as it appears that food days take a summer holiday too. Then I remembered The Great British Bake Off starting next week and happiness was restored (thanks BBC!)
Before I get going with this month’s linkup I wanted to share my favourite post from July’s #FoodYearLinkup…
As I said before, the theme of summer berries seemed to be popular last month and my favourite was this Mixed Summer Berry Charlotte Russe by Hannah at Domestic Gothess – light sponge fingers surrounding a mixed berry Bavarois and topped with fresh summer berries. It sounds absolutely delicious (and of course I like that it’s called “Charlotte” too 🙂 ).
So what’s the theme this month?
As always, I’d love you to come and link up any foodie posts relating to the events in the Food Blogger’s Calendar for August.
There’s only a few events in August but what it lacks in volume I think it makes up for in the fact that all three offer plenty of opportunity to share inspiring recipes. Fortunately normal service is resumed in September when there’s some great events planned – Sourdough September, National Cupcake Week and International Coffee Day to name a few.
1 June – 31 August – Strawberry Tea – Breast Cancer Care
1-31 August – Scottish Year of Food and Drink – Delicious Dairy Month
5 August – TBC – The Great British Bake Off
If there’s an event missing from the calendar that you’d like to link up a post for, that’s absolutely fine, just make sure you let me know what the event is in the comments.
To join in with the #FoodYearLinkup…
- Click the “add your link” button and add your link with a nice picture to entice everyone to come and have a look.
- Add the #FoodYearLinkup badge to your post so your readers know where to come to find lots of other fun foodie posts (you’ll find the code towards the bottom of this post).
- To make my life easier I’d appreciate it if you could leave me a quick comment letting me know which event you’re linking up for (it helps me to tweet them at the right time).
- Join me in visiting the other linkers making sure you comment on at least one (I’m more than happy for you to link up several posts, but if you do it would be great if you would go and comment on one other post for each one you link).
- Come back again next month and do it all again.
Throughout the month I’ll be tweeting every entry and if you tweet me (@CharlottesLK) using the #FoodYearLinkup hashtag to let me know you’ve linked up I’ll make sure I include you in the tweet. I’ll also be pinning every entry on my dedicated #FoodYearLinkup board and may include my favourites in round up posts for a selection of events throughout the year. The tweets and round up posts may also include images from your post. If you’d rather they didn’t then just let me know in the comments.
So what are you waiting for? Link up up right here…
