First Blogger Festival: FoodBuzzFest 2012

   Stoked on being part of the Food Buzz Publishers network and having the opportunity to attend the food festival in San Francisco this weekend!  It happened to coincide with my college's fall break, so after my Japanese midterm I flew home immediately.
My parents picked me up and we headed straight to registration where I got lots of goodies and some cash to use for 'Dine around SF'. We chose the famous Michael Mina restaurant in the financial district.
A great way to celebrate and take some time off of a solid first half semester of college. Nothing like French Cuisine with Japanese ingredients.

One of the amazing starters we had. Recipe has been used since '91. Taking Tuna Tartare where it has never gone before with so many flavors. It was hard to comprehend.
I told them I was GF and they were sooo accomodating. Didn't ask for this but I got the best GF bread i've ever had. It was warm, toasty, and moist. Reminded me a lot of french toast from the hint of egg I could taste. Accompanied by Honey Ricotta which was amazing.
 Red Abalone, Mirin-Soaked Rice, Miso Broth
Duck Breast, Huckleberries, Asian Pear, Butternut Squash
Ribeye over Stinging Nettle Puree
Turbot with Trumpet Mushrooms and Truffle infused Oil over Truffle Puree
Dessert Service Time
Surprise Comp'ed Red Grape Sorbet over Condensed Asian Pear and Shiso Leaf Puree! The best.
Part 1: I only had the Banana Mochi w/ Red Flame Raisin Puree

The other desserts didn't photograph well, but I can tell you they were like See's Candies times a thousand. I will definitely return. Tomorrow is the TCHO Factory Tour and Tasting Pavilion!
