It was windy & chilly; a typical San Francisco summer day, in Golden Gate Park! But none the less, the Chipotle Cultivate Festival was delicious and hilarious, AND I sure did learn a lot! Buying local-grown, fresh food seemed to be the take-away message. That, and…don’t ever leave home without your trusty magenta Northface windbreaker (and a scarf)! You never know (or in the case of SF locals–you always know) when a chilly wind will come.
I had real, live, amazing cooking lessons from a few of Food Networks finest …granted my girl Buffie was the real foodie fan, but she filled me in enough to have me appreciate being in the presence of the Richard Blais! Guys, I am excited about cooking…even if I can’t recreate his (virgin) “frozen margarita’s”!
