S. Pellegrino sure knows how to welcome their VIP guests! The first night after we arrived, we enjoyed a wonderful reception featuring dishes created by local restaurants and vendors. It was also the first time that they introduced to us all of the chefs.
They were nice enough to let everyone snap photos of them. I introduced myself to Peter Clark, the guy representing New England, my region!
A few people spoke, including our host Katie Lee, who introduced the judges.
There's really not too much else to say except to say that the food was all fantastic. Fresh seafood, hors d'oeuvres created by local restaurants, risotto, bruschetta, home-cured meats, high quality cheese, local wines, and on and on and on. Bryan and I had tons of fun going around and just tasting everything (and snapping pictures too, of course!)
But really, words do no justice. Here are some pictures!
