San Francisco, America’s Best Food City: The first week of August is your chance to experience a cornucopia of offerings from master chefs, mixologists, winemakers and other culinary superstars at SF Chefs 2011. SF Chefs features one hundred leading chefs, sixty wineries, craft brewers and food offerings over seven days of events in San Francisco.

It is impossible to claim that any one city is “the best food city”. However San Francisco is internationally renowned for its resident food and beverage artisans who craft a vast array of fresh ingredients into a culinary feast. There are four Grand Tent Tastings on Friday the 5th, Saturday the 6th and Sunday the 7th that will features dishes specially created for the event and provides you with a chance to chat with chefs, as you tantalize your taste buds. Sign up now at sfchefs2011.com before they sell out.
Starting on Monday is the Food Arts Industry for anyone interested in the restaurant industry. These classes cover everything from restaurant management, food storages tips to the fine art of cocktail creation. Each seminar will be followed by a full hour reception with complimentary Russian River Valley wines and Illy Coffee.
For those looking for the party there is plenty to choose from. One standout event is the After Party on Friday night at the elegant art deco City Club. The party will feature various indulgences including luxurious chocolates, coffee, caviar, oysters, the finest cigars and great wines from Wente Vineyards as well as cocktails and beer. Then gear up for one of the two parties on Saturday hosted by Top Chef All-Stars winner Richard Blais, featuring Top Chefs from seasons past and sponsored by Skyy Spirits.
