The first event at the Food and Wine Festival we hit was a Wine Seminar! Got a few generous tastes of wine. Here we have Kendal Jackson Vineyards Chardonnay, Syrah, and Riesling. All incredibly delicious, however I've never been a huge Syrah fan so the BF finished that one off for me.
They gave us this absolutely fantastic magnet that gives a pairing guide for all the different wine types.
Up next we had some lunch at the Pacific Warf. They have sourdough bread bowls with awesome soups. I got the veggie chili. I actually like the bread bowls since it causes them to give a smaller portion of soup. I eat all the soup and leave the bowl alone (well I did have one absolutely heavenly bite of sourdough) and the BF ends up eating some of it.
My friend Bryan joined us for the festival, look how much fun he is having!
Next we have the Boudin Bakery food demo. Look at the excitement!!
As we were waiting we goofed around a bit.
They taught us how to make a couple delicious appetizers with their tasty bread. My fav was the pear with gorganzola cheese. I had one delish bite of each then sent it over to the BF. He loved it.
Afterward, we had a celebrity chef demo ( Keegan Gerhard ) and we got these lovely desserts. I will admit I ate all of this plate! Keegan was a fantastic presenter and he got me super interested in watching the cake challenges on food network!
Then we had one more wine seminar. Here we have Edna Valley Vineyards Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Cabernet. I was such a happy blogger!!! Pinot is my fav wine ever. I had that whole glass, but I only had a few sips of the other two glasses and gave the rest to the BF. Mmmmm.
