We were back Monday morning for another day of the Food Show. This time we checked out the South Hall. We ate some really good food, some bad, and saw some TV stars. Our feet really did not want to have shoes on them today. The feet kept saying yesterday nearly ruined them. But we pushed on shoes, caught the train, and began a new day at the Fancy Food Show.
Today was the day of Food Network stars. Yesterday we were at Guy Fieri's booth. He wasn't there. You would think someone bringing out a new product line would be working his booth. Today we saw the Barefoot Contessa and Duff of Ace of Cakes. Both were great working the crowd. Duff really takes good care of his fans.
Today was another fun day of food, martinis, wine. We enjoyed talking to the vendors. One booth was mushrooms and truffles from Washington state. They let us hold a black and a white truffle. The aroma was so wonderful. People may think only Europe grows truffles, wrong. Washington state produces wonderful truffles, and for a fraction of cost of the European truffles.
The recurring food today was popcorn. Every way you can think of it: buttered, cheese, chocolate, caramel, salt, vinegar, and truffles. The best, of course was the truffles. Oh my word, how wonderful that was. The Food Show is so much fun, so tiring, so wonderful. A great 3 days, and tomorrow we probably will go back.
