Food and wine lovers will converge in San Francisco in August for SF Chefs 2010, a four-day festival of flavor running August 9-15 in Union Square. Northern California remains a trendsetter when in it comes to food and wine trend and has formed a community that is very supportive of the craft and sustainability movements in food, wine and spirits.
The main tasting tent will be in Union Square, where chefs, wine makers and distillers will showcase local products. The schedule also includes special classes and seminars that feature local farmers, ranchers, chefs, winemakers, distillers, media, luminaries, authors, vintners, mixologists and culinary experts discussing the subjects they know best. A Top Chef happy hour features the Top Chefs of SF reunion. Tyler Florence and Elizabeth Falkner will team up against Jamie Lauren and Chris Cosentino in a food face-off.
SFChefs 2010 will support the Golden Gate Restaurant Association Scholarship Foundation which grants financial scholarships to students from the Bay Area entering culinary and hospitality programs. The event also has a goal of being a zero waste event. All paper products will be recycled and all disposable silverware and glassware is made from corn resin and will be composted after use. Tickets for the Grand Tasting Tent are $125 and individual tickets for classes and demonstrations start at $20. More details on the SF Chefs website.
