A Taste of Eat Drink SF

Farm Table Eat Drink SF

Last Saturday, we spent an amazing afternoon at Eat Drink SF at Fort Mason – a great venue where we already enjoyed the SF Vintners Market some weeks ago.

The event is Toyland for foodies. Thirty among the best restaurants in the Bay Area, some of the best bars, wineries, and music in the same place.

We want to share with you the best food, wines, and beers that we tasted at the event. We cannot share the taste, but we can get very close to that by sharing the stunning pictures of @sturbi: believe me, it’s more than enough to ignite your taste buds.

Eat

It was almost 1pm and we hadn’t eaten anything yet. Starting with a dessert was not the plan, but who could resist this cannolo from Ca Momì?

Drink

At the Stella Artois booth, the beer sommelier suggested us to taste this Leffe Blonde with milk chocolate with caramel filling:

Of course we did not leave the wines out …

Jeremy Wine McCay Cellars

We tasted:

  • McCay Cellars’ Viognier 2014: nicely-bodied with good minerality. It was a fairly balanced wine and just a couple of minutes after it was poured, we could enjoy more complexity and fruity notes (it was served from an ice bucket, which was necessary due to the warm day in SF).
  • McCay Cellars’ Rosé 2014: since I appreciated the Viognier and its refreshing notes, I wanted to try the rosé. Made with Grenache, it comes from a 107-year-old vine and it’s characterized by red fruits, strawberry above all. Even more refreshing than the Viognier as I expected, this was just the perfect combo for this sunny Saturday afternoon.

We also tasted three Chardonnay at the San Francisco Wine School‘s mini-workshop with David Glancy and we interviewed Tony Gemignani from Tony’s Pizza Napoletana, but we’ll cover this two topics in separate posts.


Which one of these dishes was the most intriguing in your opinion?
