Love & Hummus, which didn't quite fit in one of the awards categories and therefore did not take home a medal, were offering tastes too.
A tasty slider from S.F.'s Bi-Rite Market, featuring a bunch of ingredients, all of which were listed, of course: this was smoked pork shoulder rubbed with Kickapoo Coffee's organic Biloya Yirgacheffe, with an ancho-chile BBQ sauce made with Patric Chocolates' 70%; a slice of La Quercia's country-cured bacon; and topped with Anne's Raspberry Farm's savory Brussels sprout relish (a winner in the pickles category).
One of the winners in the beer category: Alaskan's smoked porter.
Michael Mina pastry chef Lincoln Carson brought along these maple custards with orange toffee and Marcona almonds, and topped with a vanilla custard and Death's Door white whiskey (a winner in the spirits category).
Chiefo's Kitchen brought a sweet snack: chin-chin, a fried dough snack popular in West Africa, which Chiefo's flavors with vanilla and nutmeg.
A sausage topped with relish from Absinthe.
