Incredible Feast-Food Porn



What an amazing evening.  I was overwhelmed by both the quality and amount of talent present at last night's Incredible Feast.  Every direction  that you turned there was something tantalizing and delicious to taste.  The aromas knocked you over as you entered the main tent.  I felt like a child set loose in a candy store with no parents watching ! I won't even try to describe the deliciousness we experienced last night.  The wine, the flowers,the farmers, the produce, the chefs, the music and ah yes the food !













 All of the stars aligned last night in the middle of the U District to produce a truly incredible feast.  Now I know how those Roman emperor's felt lounging around eating their way into the night with one plate after scrumptious plate being served to them.  My absolute favorite of the evening was from Chef Adam Hoffman of Rover's-his Loki Salmon Roe on an almond macaroon with citrus fromage,oh my goodness,imagine the saltiness of the Salmon Roe , the creaminess of the citrus fromage and the crunchy sweetness of the macaroon-it was nothing short of a culinary explosion in my mouth.  I could have just stood by his table and inhaled these magnificent morsels all night long!  Without further ado, I give you the wonderful food from last night-enjoy and support your local farmers !
