New Friends and Street Food. . . Only the Beginning!

Hi there! I am completely behind on my Foodbuzz Festival recaps, and I hope you will bear with me over the next couple of days as I catch up! It is Sunday morning, and the festival is nearly over. I am completely exhausted but have had a blast. The festival kicked off Friday night with a cocktail party on the terrace of the Hotel Vitale near San Francisco’s beautiful waterfront.

I met Natalie from Natalie’s Killer Cuisine and Cristina from The Wayward Chef and had a great time soaking up the beautiful view and the massive number of foodies around me! I then found Mardi and Andrea, and we walked over to the Ferry Building for the street food extravaganza that Foodbuzz put together. We had dessert first :)

I tried a red velvet cupcake from Mission Mini’s. I love red velvet, and this was the perfect size! We followed the cupcakes with beer, of course.

The Thirsty Bear Brewing Company was pouring a wheat beer and a pilsner, and I had the pilsner. It was quite yummy, especially when paired with a couple of Kumamoto oysters.

And a beet and Point Reyes blue cheese salad. . . and some pizza.

And a bean taco from Tacolicious. . . and a zucchini and gruyere pie from The Pie Truck, possibly the best thing I have eaten all weekend. The crust of the little pie was so buttery and flaky, and the filling was rich and savory. So amazing. We topped off the night with coffee ice cream from Straus Family Creamery. Nothing beats ice cream that is this fresh.

I have so many more photos to share and so many stories of great food and great bloggers, so stay tuned. The Friday night kickoff was just the beginning. . . I am off to pack and to hit the road for the Sonoma Coast and a night at The Timber Cove Inn. Have a great Sunday!
