What You Missed at S.F. Chefs 2011

Five Top Chef alums gathered at Saturday's afterparty at the St. Francis.

It was a long weekend of binging, boozing, party-hopping and tent-wandering for a good number of local food addicts and industry folks, and this year’s S.F. Chefs seems to have come off without a hitch — or too much broken glassware. We had some delicious porky bites (the Pork Board was a sponsor this year), including a swell porchetta sandwich from Delfina and a heavenly pork-lemongrass sausage from Betelnut, and about two dozen lovely cocktails before all was said and done (most of them were very small). And when everyone’s favorite heavily accented Top Chef alum, Fabio Viviani, started throwing gnocchi at the crowd during his cooking demo on Saturday, we managed not to get pelted.
