We were so lucky this year to be able to attend Ketofest 2018. This was our first keto event outside of Australia. We attended Low Carb Down Under Sydney 2018 and since then have become addicted to low carb and keto events.
We knew we had to go to Ketofest 2018. The 2 keto dudes were instrumental in our ketogenic journey and we were really excited to finally meet them. We were also fortunate enough to be asked by Louise Reynolds to do a cooking demonstration of our breakfast muffins and our pecan cheesecake muffins.
The thing that sets ketofest apart from the other keto and low carb events is that the 2 keto dudes wanted it to be more a festival and celebration of keto and not a conference. We think this seemed to appeal much more to the everyday ketonian. There were people from all walks of life and at different stages of their keto journey which was so fun and exciting to be around.
We didn’t arrive into New London, Connecticut until Friday afternoon, so we missed fasting Friday. Fasting Friday included lectures in the Morning from Megan Ramos from IDM. Other events on ‘non-food’ related fasting friday included yoga, exercise classes, walking tours and the VIP party at Carl’s house.
Social Saturday Ketofest 2018 – New London, Connecticut
Social Saturday is the part of this event that sets itself apart from the other keto and low carb events. It’s all about having fun and the practical side of a keto lifestyle. It includes cooking demonstrations, cheesemaking demonstrations, fitness classes, live podcast recordings and an ice-cream social on Saturday night.

- Pulled Lamb and Haloumi by Richard Morris
- Keto Chocolate Ganache by Taffy Elrod

There were plenty of samples to go around after each demonstration and I can personally vouch for how delicious Taffy’s chocolate truffles and Kim’s chocolate eclairs were.
