I recently flew to San Francisco – one of my very favorite domestic cities - to attend the 2nd Annual Foodbuzz Fest (here’s last year’s write-up).  Follow along for the next two weeks as I recap my weekend trip!  And all too soon, it was time for the farewell brunch, sponsored by Nature’s Pride.  I was told to hush when I wondered aloud and via Twitter “What are the gluten-free bloggers eating here?” – I’m not sure why I was told to shush (ahem!), since it was a genuine question.  I won’t say concern, because I’m sure they didn’t go hungry [...]

I recently flew to San Francisco – one of my very favorite domestic cities - to attend the 2nd Annual Foodbuzz Fest (here’s last year’s write-up).  Follow along for the next two weeks as I recap my weekend trip!  The main event – dinner at the Ferry Building on Saturday evening – was predicated by a flurry of getting ready.  At the last minute of me packing on Thursday evening for this weekend festival, I’d noticed that this event was listed as a “gala dinner” – now, I have limited experience attending galas, but I do know that in NYC, when [...]

Second Annual Foodbuzz Blogger Festival – Tasting Pavilion

I recently flew to San Francisco – one of my very favorite domestic cities - to attend the 2nd Annual Foodbuzz Fest (here’s last year’s write-up).  Follow along for the next two weeks as I recap my weekend trip!  After the AM breakout sessions, I was dying to try the Alaskan seafood we’d seen demo’d but been unable to try.  It smelled fabulous – well, the halibut did, I Tweet’d my unhappy nose with the smelly salmon – so after Blondie and I walked to the Metreon, we walked straight to the back where they’d set up an area to make [...]

I recently flew to San Francisco – one of my very favorite domestic cities - to attend the 2nd Annual Foodbuzz Fest (here’s last year’s write-up).  Follow along for the next two weeks as I recap my weekend trip!  Saturday morning was reserved, once again, for informational sessions.  Last year, I’d attended a cheese seminar led by Cowgirl Creamery and a sparkling wine seminar led by an ignorant, ill-informed wine blogger.  This year, due to feedback from bloggers from last year, I’m sure, the sessions were mostly geared more towards blogging and learning about blogging, with two sessions squished in the [...]

Second Annual Foodbuzz Blogger Festival – Welcome Reception & Street Food Fare

I recently flew to San Francisco – one of my very favorite domestic cities - to attend the 2nd Annual Foodbuzz Fest (here’s last year’s write-up).  Follow along for the next two weeks as I recap my weekend trip!  Rolling pork loins of my dreams… hello, Roli Roti.  Much like last year, Friday evening’s festivities included a welcome reception and street food fare… this time at Fort Mason in a giant (empty) warehouse.  Mission Minis once again greeted us with cupcakes everywhere.  I had one.  It was a cupcake.  Cheese platters at each numbered table for us to munch on… where [...]
