Good Food event. "The Good Food Awards celebrate the kind of food we all want to eat: tasty, authentic and responsibly produced." Well, the winners were all lined up at the Ferry Building with their winning food ready for tasting. For $5 you could sample all of the winning coffee, preserves, chocolates, cheese, and charcuterie. I saw a few familiar faces from Portland which warmed my heart and sipped a little too much Portland Heart coffee which had me feeling like I was vibrating with energy. I forgot to mention that as soon as I lined up for the first sample I quickly found myself behind Alice Waters of Chez Panisse and a local hero as she brought gardens to so many public schools. The citrus at the market seemed to glow electric pink. I crossed a patch of clover on my walk home and felt like with my luck there had to be one or two four leafed clovers smiling back at me.
