This past weekend I was lucky to tag along with my summer employer, Hippie Chow Natural Foods, to visit San Francisco for the international Fancy Food Show. This show invites small and large gourmet food companies to come together to network and expand their businesses. For me, this meant I was able to try hundreds (literally hundreds) of samples and talk to some intense foodies. I met the owners of some of my favorite food companies, such as Jeni from Jeni’s Ice Cream and the Justin Nut Butter Crew. I tried cheeses from France, hummus chips (so good!), truffle popcorn, bacon jelly, lots of pour over coffee and sea salt chocolate. I was able to explore some of San Fran as well on my down time. We ventured over to the Ferry Building and ate at Gott’s Roadside Diner, Boudin Bakery at the Fisherman’s Wharf, croissants at Tartine Bakery and Blue Bottle Coffee.
I could get used to trips centered around food 😉
