Mill Valley Wine & Gourmet Food Tasting

Last weekend we went to the Mill Valley Wine & Gourmet Food Tasting.  The weather was perfect, so what could be better than drinking a little wine in the sun?  There were over 70 wineries, and several local restaurants cheffing up some quality snacks.  Tyler Florence was also there and he was grilling up a fantastic strawberry sandwich with some Cowgirl Creamery Mt. Tam cheese (pictured above).  Deelish!

Buttonwood Winery.  I was really more impressed with the presentation than the wine.

Rob and Devon are always up for a good time.

As I was waiting in line for my aforementioned grilled strawberry cheese sandwich, there was a girl behind me that was disappointed she forgot her camera.  I, having mine with me, turned around and offered to take a picture of her and her husband.  To which she replied, "oh, I don't care about taking a picture with my husband, I want my picture with Tyler."  So, of course I couldn't resist jumping in the picture with her.  I e-mailed her a copy, and I am sure I am sitting on her mantel.    

Lydia and the picture with her husband she could care less about.

Personally, I am a bigger fan of Bobby Flay, so of course I had to bust Tyler's chops for being too hard on the contestants of The Next Food Network Star, but that's another story.  

I'd rather have my picture taken with this guy any day!

Is it hot in here, or is it the Mill Valley Fire Department??

Good times were had by all.  See you next year!
