Photo Saturday in the Slow Food Nation

Watching.
Sunshine.
Snoozers.
Ozomatli!
Gnarls.
(underwhelming) festival food.
No plastic bottles! Brills.
Off to the Taste Pavilions...















Cocktail umbrella ceiling!















Cheese line.













Chocolate line.












Wine line.













Pizza line part 1.














Pizza line part 2.












Pizza line part 3.












Short line here!









Wild, wild rice.












Teepee time.












Time to find food -- Pavilion scraps were tasty but few.

First: art party at Silverman on Sutter.








Luck! Tiny bites by private chef Keiko Takano. (That's her above with the a-mazing hair.)


Now *that's* a taste pavilion.

Roman-style artichoke; Happy Boy melon, mint + Israeli feta; potato-paprika torte; snap pea pod piped with ricotta-pea puree.

Dang.









Bourbon and Branch: Aperol delight.













The final solution.












Night night!

  1. the cheese line ended up going down the aisle, out the door, and back to the front of the building. I skipped it. Reminiscent of Disneyland.

  2. Yes! A very well-crafted but amateurishly* operated affair. Big points for effort though!

    (*SO not a real word.)
