don't miss this weekend

I went to the Opening Night Reception last night for the SF Chefs. Food. Wine. Don't miss this "first" in San Francisco. It was the most fun event I've been to in a long, long time. Honestly I can still taste the "corn dog" made by Richard Corbo, rising star, soon to open Pizzeria Zanna Bianca. Great wines!!! Cocktails by bar stars Marco Dionysos, Dominic Vemegas, Thad Volgler, Neyah White and many more. It was the place to see and be seen! All the Kellers were there, Thomas and Hubert, Tyler Florence, Jamie Lauren, so many more. Every food and wine writer. This event is dubbed as featuring the best in San Francisco and if you miss it, honestly, it's your loss!

I have to run.... I am doing a book signing in the Grand Tent in a few minutes and then an heirloom demo with my best chef pal, Gary Danko, at 3:30 at Williams Sonoma Flagship Store on Union Square. Rumor has it, we were the first to sell out. I guess we've got a lot of tomato lovers out there. Garrison Keillor said that when you no longer care about fresh tomatoes and sweet corn, death is near!

Hi Joanne,
I really enjoyed your presentation today with Gary. You offered great insight about your cooking style and use of tomatoes. I look forward to your next presentation. Maybe we can see you do a presentation with wine (smile).

Keep up the great work!

Hi Chef Weir!

I had a great time at the opening reception as well, and yes, I can still taste the "corn dog." I did see you there, but I was too shy to say hello. I have watched cooking shows on PBS since I was 3 years old and so see all these chefs there was overwhelming...In a good way of course. Thank you so much for stopping by my blog. =)
