Did you know...

Coining the term “foodie” is credited to Joe Baum, founder of The Four Seasons Resaturant, which opened in New York City in 1959.

Inauguration celebration

Thanksgiving Coffee Company made a special President’s Blend to celebrate Barack Obama’s election. They also produce Coffees for a Cause, which fits right in with the new president’s agenda. The causes range from a Jewish, Muslim and Christian cooperative in Uganda (Mirembe Kawomera used in our “Cool Beverages” video), to wildlife conservation.

Alice's Stick Cookies ties boxes of their melt-in-your-mouth, award-winning cookies in patriotic red, white and blue (below).

San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition Award Tasting

The San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition is the largest competition for American wines in the world. Only the medal winners are invited to pour their wines at this tasting -- an amazing opportunity to taste fine wines and artisan foods side-by-side.

Thirty-five companies from SavorCalifornia.com will be on hand to sample and sell their gourmet foods and beverages, including La Bella Olives (above) and Donsuemor Madeleines (below).

Join us Saturday, February 28, from 2 to 5 pm at the Festival Pavilion, Fort Mason, San Francisco. This event sells out in advance, so you can purchase tickets at WineJudging.com.
