SF Chefs 2011 Recap [PHOTOS]

My, my how time flies! It seems like just yesterday I was stoked to see my favorite chefs and taste their delectable creations for SF Chefs 2011. Now that the week of seminars, tastings and parties is over, all we have are faint and distant memories. And oh yeah…pictures! See below for my awesome iPhone 4 shots. Someday I’ll get a better camera and stop subjecting you to the madness!

I only went to the Grand Tasting on Sunday and the Industry After Party at Jasper’s this year, but one thing that stood out at the Grand Tasting was PORK PORK PORK every which way, thanks to the National Pork Board (Pork: Be Inspired!). Some things that I didn’t manage to get a photo of (but still tasted outta this world) were the Pork Confit with Summer Fruit from Frances‘ Melissa Perello, ceviche two ways from La Mar and Absinthe’s Smoked German Sausage with potato-corn salad and a spicy onion marmalade. Oh and Munch from Burlingame had a tasty Buttermilk Panna Cotta and I managed to make out Chefs Gary Danko and Joanne Weir discussing BLTs. Without further adieu….

eVe. Watermelon, squid, cucumbers, cumin, dill blossoms

Scala's Bistro. Jen Biesty. Petrale Sole with heirloom tomato, saffron, artichoke and herbs

Nombe Izakaya. Sansho pepper pulled pork salad, toy box tomatoes, red frilly mustard, okura, taro chips, yuzu cream

Sons & Daughters. Teague Moriarty and Matt McNamara. Agastache marshmallow foie

Bix. Bruce Hill. Opentop pork sandwich with fresh tomatoes

Driscoll's berries!

Cool desserts at Jasper's from Rose Rodriguez

And last but not least….

Dominique Crenn. Hottest female chef ever!

Hope you had fun at SF Chefs as well and see ya next year!

  1. Rogue Sprite

    Watermelon seems to be a popular in this summer’s seafood recipes. I should really get on with some of that watermelon ceviche going around.
