Food Buzz at FoodBuzz

Welcome Food by FrogHollow Farms

This weekend I am living the dream of any food lover. I'm in gorgeous San Francisco, California at a Food Blogging/Writer's Conference where my job is to eat amazing food, and drink (thoughtfully) all the wine and fine brewed beer I can consume. Tough job, but somebody....right?

This conference is sponsored by FoodBuzz (click and read all about them.)Just for the major drool opportunity, I thought I'd post a few pics before I nap like a Roman Soldier and go back out there and be glutinous once again.The evening's food festivities began just as the sun was setting over the water at the Fort Mason pavilion . Hungry bloggers followed the "I (heart) Foodbuzz" signs, and grabbed a paper that told them which table was theirs, and also a few friendly instructions to follow as a way to get to know each other. Each of us brought a gift for exchanging with another blogger. I was SO fortunate to receive a gift of Teuscher Chocolates from Elaina at One Healthy Apple.
I gave my gift of jam, fruit paste and a few things from Hermosa Beach, California to Renuka of I Dream O Food.
Then, the rumbling charge to the food trucks and stands commenced.Sometimes I got the chance to make a food-pic, and other times it was devoured before my brain could tell my hands to pick up the camera. Here are a few of the goodies:
Namu Korean Taco Tacolicious
Roli Roti - Porchetta
Chez Spencer's Braised Lamb and Lobster CappacinoStraus ice creamsMission Mini Cupcakes
The second day includes break-out sessions about photography, writing and videos. After that there is a different pavilion full of food waiting for us to taste before we have our dinner of even more food. This calls for stretchy pants.
