Hello! I have so many thoughts to share regarding the Foodbuzz Festival. Point blank: one of the best weekends of my life. No joke.
I'll go into more details later, but the first item I want to discuss is this:
I was definitely feeling the excitement. Tyler Florence on the other hand? Well, he was concentrating on spelling my name correctly!
There we go! Smiles all around.
Tyler (yeah, we're on a first name basis now) made a surprise appearance at the Taste Pavilion on Saturday afternoon.
I just happened to be in the right place at the right time, so I was able to meet him and receive a free, signed copy of his cook book, "Tyler Florence Family Meal."
What a wonderful (and lucky!) day!
Have you ever met a celebrity chef?
I met Chef Art Smith back in June, and I semi-met Bobby Flay. Let me explain - I appeared on an episode of Throwdown (just as part of the crowd!) and was within feet of him, though we never actually talked!
