Dear Fellow Foodies,
Would you say that this picture is worth a thousand words? Not only did I get a second chance for a photo with Tyler Florence...ladies and gentlemen...
Tyler cooked pan roasted rabbit with a chestnut polenta, roasted pumpkin with a beautiful sage infused oil and fried sage as a garnish.
Craig had a wonderful day with me, and I think he's becoming a "Foodie". We had an opportunity to explore all of the food booths, before the crowds arrived-- tasting to much fantastic food, wine and beer. Five hours flew by fast.
Truly, I can tell you that Tyler Florence is not only a professional chef-- he's also entertaining. Most importantly, Tyler treats his fan as though we are all one big family. He took the time to, articulately, explain every step of what he's doing (just like on his Ultimate Show on Food Network). He allowed the audience to ask questions about food, and he patiently and thoroughly answered questions. He graciously posed with lines of his fans, signed autographs and never did I seem him snub a single person.
Tyler Florence is a star. I cannot wait to compose both meals that he cooked into a recipe format, so that I can share it with you.
I have over 200 photos to edit and compile into a story line.
Next year, come to the Second Annual Food & Wine Harvest Festival. It was good times!
