It's been an awesome foodie summer

Seems like forever since I have blogged! Guess I have been too busy eating my way through the summer. I spent 5 weeks in southern California this summer watching my brother's beautiful home and awesome dogs while he conducted "Griselda" an opera in
Santa Fe New Mexico. I need a moment to brag on my brother Grant Gershon who conducts the Los Angeles Master Chorale and is assisstant conductor of the Los Angeles Opera with Placido Domingo. He is a wonderful and humble guy and a great brother as well!
His wife is also a very talented classical singer and a beautiful person.
Back to food - Los Angeles is sure a great place to sample a variety of food. My favorite experience down there was attending the Los Angeles Street Food Festival. What an awesome event! There were two sessions, an early afternoon one for families and a
later one for guests 18 and older. I attended the latter event with my daughter and her new husband. You paid $60 to get in but once in you got to eat for free off of over 60 different food booths featuring multi-cultural delectables. There were also free
cocktails, beer and and array of soft drinks, protein drinks, teas and coffees etc. There was a section for desserts and ice creams as well. People were also handing out take home samples of different vitamin waters, cappuccino drinks etc. The food was
amazing! My only disappointment was the offering from the Border Grill truck. I expected more than a tasteless quinoa fritter from Mary Sue Milliken and Susan Feniger. As a Top Chef superfan I was also really happy to get to meet Michael Voltaggio, winner
of Top Chef season 5! I left with my belly bulging!!!
I blog some more later about my other food experiences in L.A. and back here at home in the beautiful and bountiful Sierra Nevada foothills. Happy eating!
