The Foodbuzz Festival was seriously an event full of eating, eating, and more eating! On Day 1, we enjoyed San Francisco street foods at the Ferry Building. On Day 2, I got up bright and early to taste olive oil at 9 AM! It was definitely an odd experience! The rest of the morning, I explored the Ferry Building Marketplace with various new blogger friends I just recently met.
In the afternoon, we all congregated at the Sony Metreon Building and spent the afternoon samplings various different foods from various vendors. Here are just a few highlights. Enjoy!
Kerrygold butter from Irish grass fed cows. This butter had a much yellower natural color than normal supermarket butter. It was quite tasty.
479 Popcorn is a local popcorn company that makes the most interesting flavors. One of my favorites was this one: black truffle + white cheddar. It was sooooo truffly and soooo good.
Gorgeous handmade chocolates and marshmallows from Gâteau et Ganache. I loved these passion fruit ganache filled chocolates. The passion fruit gave a nice citrus-y kick which offset the dark chocolate nicely.
Aunt Else’s Æbleskiver The Æbleskiver is a Danish pastry “similar in taste and texture to an American pancake, but light and fluffy like a popover” (according to their website). This stuff was incredibly delicious – moist and eggy with a ton of the crispy outer “edge’ that I love – I kept coming back for more. I’ll be doing a more in-depth review soon on these delicious pancake-like bombs and the cool 9-hole pan!
Hong and Kim from Ravenous Couple (who just got engaged!!!! Check out the story here and here) were Nature’s Pride Ambassadors and prepared fried Halloumi cheese toast.
I met some other great people whose blogs I have admired for awhile now. From left to right, Diana from A Little Bit of Spain In Iowa, Rachel from La Fuji Mama, and me. We had such a great time, and spent tons of time chatting during the Festival. It’s too bad we live so far apart!
