Back from the food and wine festival and had a great time. Saw mary ann esposito do a chicken with fontina, cream, tomatoes, parmesan casserole. Robert Irvine (dinner impossible, food network) do a flank steak with tomatoes, cucumber, watermelon, red onions and Jacques Torres do a dessert, chocolate indulgence which was crazy good...
The celebrity chef dine around was incredible. Got to sample 20 + chefs food. And even as a vegetarian, there was plenty to eat. Another notable who was there was Elizabeth Falkner. She was the one who was on the Gingerbread house food network challenge who made that gingerbread cave that the judges hated. Here she made a parmesan pudding with roasted peppers and chocolate nib explosion ( like chocolate pop rocks)
Great experience, great time. Should look for food an wine festivals in your areas and check it out. This is the 3rd one i attended in 3 months.

Me and Robert Irvine, who is a really nice and funny guy. Dont let all that yelling and screaming fool you.
