Welcome to The Delicious Life!


The WBBA is thrilled to welcome keynote speaker Jen Barney, owner of Meringue Bakery, and winner of the Food Network’s Season 4 Holiday Baking Championship! Trained at the acclaimed Le Cordon Bleu College of Culinary Arts as a baker and pastry chef, Jen has designed specialty dessert lines and created decadent desserts, confections and cakes for a variety of occasions for over 10 successful years.

Hear Jen's story about her skill, passion and talent for her profession and what it took for her to win the Food Network's Baking Championship. Learn a few tips and tricks (scones and more!) to enhance your own culinary skills, watch some demonstrations, and of course, Q&A at the end of the session! Jen will also be selling some of her decadent delights!

We are very excited to bring together a distinguished panel of your fellow passionate foodie innkeepers to present "Breakfast... A Love Story", because as you all know, the other "B" in our name is Breakfast and what guest doesn't love a wonderfully prepared and presented breakfast!?

Please join us for this creative presentation and discussion as we talk about cooking/baking, recipes, dietary restrictions, presentation, pairing, products, tips, short-cuts/simplifying kitchen prep, and of course a few demo's and lively Q&A to help insure that at your Inn, the breakfast love story continues for you and your guests!

Monday Evening B&B and Historic Homes Tour, Reception, & Holiday Lights Display
Join us for an evening with some of La Crosse’s historic homes and landmarks while meeting old and new friends! Transportation will be available from the Radisson to start the tour at the breathtaking Castle La Crosse B&B, new to the WBBA membership and built in 1892. The tour will then move on to Le Chateau, a beautiful French cuisine restaurant with a European style atmosphere. Heavy appetizers, a cash bar, and other surprises await you here! While returning to the Radisson after the tours, we will ride through the festive Holiday Lights Display where more than 3 million lights illuminate La Crosse’s Riverside Park. You won’t want to miss this! Cost: $55/person - found under the "Fun & Food Options" portion of the registration.

Tuesday Evening Dinner - Exciting Changes
In lieu of the traditional Grand Banquet, this year we will have food stations in the Vendor Mart Ballroom area. Enjoy a wide variety of delicious foods while you mix and mingle with innkeepers and our vendor partners! And more surprises await!

There is so much in store, so keep checking back to the conference page of our website for up-to-date information, conference schedule, and a list of exhibitors while we build up this sure-to-be memorable anniversary event!
