It was such a fun weekend to be in San Francisco to celebrate food makers across the nation at the Good Food Awards. We got to see a lot of old friends again and meet new ones. The awards ceremony was held at the grand Palace of Fine Arts, which was appropriate since we all felt a little rotunda after the gala reception tastings.
