Today my husband and I attended our first Slow Food event...the 5th Annual Golden Glass event in San Francisco at Fort Mason. It was a wine and food tasting extravaganza. We got to taste food from many of the local restaurants that we love or are dying to try. I think my favorite tasting had to be the chocolate ice cream from Bi-Rite Creamery that was drizzled with olive oil and sea salt...it was delicious!!! And my second favorite was probably the semi-sweet chocolate I tasted that was right next to a tasting of fresh strawberries...and how I love strawberries and chocolate.
The wines were mostly from Italy and many of the representatives there were from Italy. It was fun to listen to them talk in Italian... it is such a beautiful language.
Anyway I know I haven't written a blog entry in a while - but I am busy here running after my 22 month old daughter and trying to prepare local and organic food for her. Tonight for dinner she had a hamburger and peas - and she devoured it.
