Wesleyan University in Connecticut recently held Foodstock, a food conference dedicated to cooks and books. The all-day extravaganza featured some of the food world's best and brightest writers (including SE contributors!) as well as local food bloggers, cookbook authors, and chefs. Of the many speakers, some highlights included Ruth Reichl, Eric Asimov, Dorie Greenspan, Molly O'Neill, and Jane Stern. Check out some snapshots from Foodstock!
