Tillamook Co-Op Lunch at Sunset Magazine

This week has been extremely busy as I settle into my new position as an intern for a local media (newspaper) company. It’s been a lot of work, but I am so grateful to have this opportunity in my life to learn from some of the most fantastic journalists, as I grow in my writing skills and gain knowledge. It’s been completely invaluable to me.

On Saturday, Oct. 10, I had a chance to join my fellow Tillamook Co-Op members and food bloggers at the Sunset Magazine Headquarters in Menlo Park, California for lunch!

The afternoon was spent dining on delectable Sunset dishes, meeting Sunset and Tillamook staff, and socializing with some of the Bay Area’s most fascinating food bloggers.

And a special hello to Miss Cheesemonger, a fellow foodie who we happened to meet at the Tillamook ice cream truck in the garden. She runs a gorgeous food blog, and even has her own online shop. Kudos to you!
