San Francisco is home to so many fantastic food events, and a couple weeks ago I got to attend one of the biggest ones of all: the 29th Meals on Wheels Star Chefs and Vintners Gala. This fundraising event has become an annual showcase of some of the biggest names in the food and wine scene in San Francisco and Napa-Sonoma wine country. With Chef Nancy Oakes of San Francisco fixture Boulevard restaurant serving as Gala Chair, the event never has any trouble attracting the best of the best.
Many thanks to Meals on Wheels for extending an invitation to me and my husband to be part of the evening. Below are images from the evening, from the cocktail and hors d’oeuvres reception, to the three-course dinner, and my favorite part, the dessert reception. Over 200 chefs and vintners contributed their talents to the spectacular spread – hope you enjoy this little taste of what we experienced!
