Johnson always delivers, and her stint as one of YouTube's Next Chefs suggests 2012 will be another hearty year...."

While I found the feast itself very satisfying, what appealed to me most on Friday's menu were the food stories shared by poet Liliana Valenzuela and writer Beatriz Terrazas, and the opportunity to learn more about the DIY attitude that's helping to make blogger Hilah Johnson a YouTube cooking sensation and fueling the food travel app developments of bloggers Rachel and Logan Cooper of Boots in the Oven..."
