SF Chefs is upon us once again!
But no, it doesn't have to be all in your mind. YOU, yes YOU, can take part in this annual event showcasing the talent and creativity of the San Francisco food industry. Us who make the City and the Bay Area our home very well know that we are blessed to live in an area that respects food and the local purveyors that make our food world go round. People travel here from all over to appreciate what is right in our backyards.
Literally. Meet those who grow your food, mix your cocktails, ferment your spirits, and brave the stove every night just to give you an unforgettable experience on your palate.
The start of SF Chefs is TODAY July 30th, 2012 (did you see the 4-star kick off dinner last night?!). Just check out the official SF Chefs schedule to get your tickets.
So where will I be? I wish I could attend all of the events, but I will for sure be at the Joanne Weir & Gary Danko Summer Corn Cooking Demo on Saturday and the Grand Tasting on Sunday. I'll see if I can make my way to more events. There are just too many to choose from!
The Grand Tasting is my favorite aspect of SF Chefs, and luckily for me Chef Martin Yan (one of my idols from when I was a kid watching PBS), Brian Boitano (my favorite figure skater since Albertville), and Chef Marcus Samuelsson (one of my favorite Food Network personalities) will be in attendance on Sunday. Talk about chef and deliciousness overload. I love it.
See you there my friends!

I skipped 2010, well, because of something else that was happening that year.
