hey guys! i am pre-writing this one and chances are i am in san francisco right now hanging out with several other bloggers.
that’s right, the time has come for the second annual foodbuzz festival. so exciting.
i went last year and had the time of my life. between the delicious food, the informative classes, the fun activities and the amazing people.. i decided that the foodbuzz festival was something i had to go to every year.
for today’s flashback, i decided to take a look at last year’s foodbuzz festival. i wonder how this year’s will compare.
friday, november 6th.
i started things off eating at taylor’s automatic refresher. we were meeting up with danica and i was with my sister, her kids and my mom. my sister lives in california and so my mom and i went out a few days earlier to spend time with them. i am flashing back to this meal because i think EVERYONE simply NEEDS to eat at this place. it is located in the ferry building and it is SO good.
the first night consisted of a welcome cocktail party and a street food fare.
there were a lot of familiar faces and even more new ones!
tons of delicious food. and drinks.
saturday, november 7th.
the morning started off with a visit to the ferry building farmers market along with a delicious breakfast. if you go to san francisco, the ferry building market is NOT to be missed.
next up were sessions of seminars where i learned about olive oils.
but then it was onto the tasting pavilion.. AKA foodie paradise. i had never seen so much deliciousness to taste in one place!
and we hit up a champagne seminar.
there was a teeny bit of time between the seminar and the dinner.. so i got to meet DEB!!!!!
love her so much.
saturday night was a great farm-to-table dinner. i must say, it was the first time i’d tried ox tails!
they also did the foodbuzz blogger awards, which they aren’t doing again this year. it’s too bad, because that was really fun.
sunday, november 8th.
i met up with deb in the morning and she, allison and i went for a walk and talked.
oh, sidenote, i was in LOVE with the houndstooth carpet in our hotel :)
there was a farewell brunch which was sponsored by nature’s pride bread. which means.. i ate a lot of bread ;)
after the brunch, ashley, jasmine & i decided to explore the city. it ended up being hours and hours of lots and lots of walking! but it was fun. we ran into an awesome farmers market.
and we found the full house house :)
the only downside was that i purchased marshall a shirt from the puma store, then ashley & i decided to hop on a bus because we were tired of walking. well, i left the bag with the shirt at the bus stop. we went all the way back but it was gone :( lesson learned!
we ended our journey at the cliff house where we met up with allison and quinn briefly before my sister came to pick me up for the airport.
hope you enjoyed seeing last year’s foodbuzz festival adventures. i will be back soon with a recap of this year’s shenanigans :)
HAVE A GREAT WEEKEND!
