Food Paparazzi

It was a beautiful day to be out in San Francisco, so I went to a baseball game with a friend. But before the game, I picked up some bombolonis for a gametime snack at the Ferry Building. While I was there I noticed a familiar face also out enjoying the good weather.

Richard Blais is a chef that competed on Top Chef, and recently won the Top Chef All-Stars special. It's typically quiet at the Ferry Building and surrounding areas on a Sunday (not as crazy packed as Saturdays), so Blais could walk around freely with his family. But I wasn't the only one taking a double take because I saw a few other people turned their heads and thinking, "Is that ....?"
My Twitter friends reminded me that Blais was in town for a special dinner put on by the Frog Hollow Farm people on Saturday night. So I guess Sunday was his chance to enjoy the city. I wonder if his daughter is going to grow up to be a little Top Chef as well? :-)

Blais lucked out on the weather, but what's the deal with the scarf Blais? Yeah, this is San Francisco but we get sun sometimes too.

How sweet! Glad he got to spend some nice family time after all the work he did the night before at the fabulous Frog Hollow Farm dinner. I got to introduce him at the event. He is totally gracious. And his food was stellar.
