TGIF. It has been an interesting week, to say the least. It all started with a trip to San Francisco. Fancy Food Show, here we come! Or went... That would be more approriate, considering it is now in the past...
Anyways, from the moment we arrived up north, it rained. Then it continued to rain the entire time we were up there. It continued to rain everywhere else in California too! Whoever says California doesn't have weather wasn't watching the news this past week, but that is besides the point. Luckily we had a lot to do to keep us busy and out of the rain while we were there!
We spent about 4 days in San Francisco, and we could easily have spent the entire time at the Fancy Food Show, it was so huge! There were tons of people there, lots of food to try, and a good time was had by all, or at least by me... :) To get an idea of the show and what is was like, check out http://www.livestream.com/nasft to see footage of it. Hey, if you are lucky, you may even catch the interview with our National Sales Manager, Kimberly!
We also spent some time in Bristol Farms in the Westfield shopping center making sure the meat counter was absolutley gorgeous for any and all to see! Interesting place, considering the store was inside the mall, and literally right next to Bloomingdales!
Ah yes, a picture of all the girls, hard at work inside Bristol Farms! or are we hardly working? I'll let you decide... You can even get a glimpse of the pretty counter behind those pretty girls! Flattery will get you everywhere! Ooh, let's play a game! 5 points to each correctly identified person, 10 points for each correctly identified product on the counter, and a 50 point bonus for being the first person to get all of it correct!!!! What do you get with all of these points, you ask? The satisfaction of knowing all the correct answers, and the title of being Scott's Food Products #1 fan!!!
Another great place to stay dry in the rain is a lovely market in Portola Valley called Bianchini's Market. It is an old fashioned type of market with a full service meat and seafood counter! Great service, friendly people, and great products! Look out for out Santa Maria Style Seasoning set up on their meat counter right over the beef roasts! It is an excellent addition to just about anything to make an ordinary meal extraordinary!!! Check out their website too! It is just as lovely online as it is in person. http://www.bianchinismarket.com/ They even have fun recipe contests for you online folk to participate in! Check it out, then stop by their market and check out! Just don't forget to grab a jar of Santa Maria on the way out.
Well, now that I have jibber jabbered for a bit, it is time to start the weekend, and come up with some more ideas to jibber jabber about next week. Until then, happy weekend, and happy grilling!!!
