Foodbuzz Festival 2011

The beautiful Grand Hyatt in San Fran where FoodBuzz ’11 was held.


This group of ladies…were…absolutely AMAZING! From (top) left and then on bottom from left to right: Jessica, moi, Jessica, Joelen, Nikki, Krystal, and…I dunno.

Best latte…ever?

I learned how to pronounce endive (en-deeve) and had the best, most simple appetizer ever served on endive leaves. I can’t wait to reproduce it at home…stay tuned!

Kath and Sarah were on the Panel, as well as Jessica (How Sweet It Is – not pictured)

A great session on Lightroom and editing with Marc from No Recipes (who is…so wonderful and sincere and amazing! His photog style is so similar to mine, I had an instant connection with him.)

Scallops? Yes, please.

Jessica and Joelen

Andrea and I…meet again! 😀 And this time, I got to meet Andy, too! (Who is hil-a-rious).


Watermelon Beer. Who’da thunk it?

Tyler Florence and I 😀

So fun. So pooped. 2am EST…crash.

See ya back in the flat lands.

Share With Your Friends!

    I am so jealous! I’m glad you had such a great time…thanks for sharing!

    I’ll stick with en-dive because I’m uncivilized like that. Also, that Tyler Florence – what’s so great about him anyway? All he’s got is fame, wealth, the looks, cooking skills, flourishing businesses, and a down-to-earth personality (based on what everyone was saying that got to meet him). I mean, really, who cares about all that stuff?

    Oh, by the way, nice meeting you, too, Nicole! ๐Ÿ™‚

  19. November 14, 2011 / 9:50 pm

    I had an amazing time meeting you in San Fran! Thanks for the encouragement via Twitter on my Half this past Sunday, as well – mucho appreciated! ๐Ÿ™‚
