HAPPY MONDAY!!!!! I AM BACK!!!
Oh how I have missed you all so. It was an amazing, much needed 10 day vacation! I can not tell you how much fun we had together, it was fantastic. I canâ€™t wait to go back next year. Throughout this week I will be posting some of our favorite places we visited in Maui as well as the amazing food and drinks we had.
Now I think I owe you my final recap of the Foodbuzz Fest as well as some WINNERS!!! If you missed my first post on the start of the festival you can check it our here.
On Saturday morning we woke up bright and early and headed to the Fairy Building, my most favorite part of San Fran!Â Of course our first stop was BLUE BOTTLE COFFEE CO!!! Best coffee on the planet, made when you order, heaven will serve coffee like this!
For breakfast we walked around the Farmers Market and I ordered a green juice and had a huge breakfast egg sandwich with apple wood bacon (the only time I eat bacon).
We also go the pleasure of touring the TCHO test kitchen. Itâ€™s a newer upcoming chocolate factory that has some pretty amazing chocolate.
We totally look like tourists
We had the joy of wearing hair nets, no hair in the chocolate!
Have you ever seen a cocoa beans?
Our awesome tour guide. Did you know your not supposed to chew chocolate?! Yep, just let it melt in your mouth
Finally got to meet the Love KARA!!! We are IG buddies!
Bought my first Frog Hollow Farms Pear! It was $3!!! AND WORTH EVERY PENNY. The softest, sweetest, and juiciest pear I have ever sunk my teeth into!
The girls and I did a fun little Farmers Market Scavenger hunt put on from Foodbuzz.
Then it was TASTE PAVILLION testing time. A lot of local companies come and show off all their wonderful products for all of us foodies to get our tastes buds going!
I was happy to see my favorite wine from Cupcake Vinyards!
and so many other wonderful VEGAN and GLUTEN FREE foods!
The biscuits from a local food truck were a BIG HIT!
Cook Real Simple Delicious soups were on my top favorites! They actually sent me some samples and I will be reviewing soon!
and as always the cupcakes were beautiful as always!
Another favorite was JUST PURE FOODS!! All of their vegan dehydrated chips were flipping amazing!
After the wonderful expo we headed to the local mall and got our makeup done for the Gala.
Love having a reason to wear a dress The gala was a the most beautiful location., the San Francisco Aquarium.
We were greeting with more cocktails
and lots of appetizers.
Then it was dinner time!
I enjoyed a little bit of everything
