Atlanta --  Bren Herrera, a local foodista that lives here in Atlanta most recently has been featured on the Gilt City "Cityunlisted" page for her continued role as a leader in the food blogging world.  Her site FlanboyantEats.com takes readers on a world journey amongst different flavors and unique latin dishes.  She has been featured in a variety of national outlets including NY Times and Dean & Deluca, and Bren will even be LIVE in STUDIO at CNN Espanol on Friday (10/7) morning cooking up another one of her latin creations. 

Bren wrote us a letter last week telling us more about herself and I wanted to share it with everyone:

Some fun news I wanted to share... a few months ago I was asked by a local PR agency to consider vying to be a Gilt City blogger .... I had to tweet certain things I was doing in Atlanta, etc...no biggie. The winner would get a few spending dollars on Gilt City... I went on about my biz and forgot about it.... Later got to meet the Pres. of Gilt Groupe City, based in NY during their launch of the Atlanta edition. I was later featured in a local article as a taste maker that attended the party... Of all the celebs there, I was mentioned alongside one former contestant on Dancing with the Stars.... So.... I finally and unexpectedly got an email saying I won the blogger search! Great, I get a few bucks to spend on the site... designer shoes anyone?!!? ;)

It got better. I got a subsequent email saying I'd be featured on their Gilt City site as an Atlanta Insider..... And it finally went live today to my surprise! 

You can check it out here... http://www.cityunlisted.com/flanboyant-eats/

If you don't know about Gilt Groupe, you totally should... it's a great discount designer site that offers exclusive sales on fabulous things. The Gilt City arm is where they offer fabulous things to do in your city (well L.A, Chicago, DC, Atlanta and a few others for now). 

And another nice mention.... I was listed as one of iVillage's (NBC-Universal) favorite Latina Food Bloggers (only 9) in honor of Hispanic Heritage Month... woo hoo...
