We went to the National Heirloom Exposition’s first annual event this Wednesday!
While we’re no terribly interested in heirlooms for the sake of heirlooms, we are interested in delicious, hand crafted, local foods. The Heirloom Expo promised foods galore, so off we went.
It was held at the Sonoma County Fairgrounds – as we entered in the side gate, we came directly in to the food court area, which was good because we were both getting a case of the low blood sugar crankies.
We went for a grilled cheese, I believe the booth said it was from the Farmer’s Wife but I can’t find any info on who they are or where I can get more of them. The bread was insanely good and the massive wheels of cheese they were cutting off were something dreams are made of. Ut was cooked to te perfect crisp, and there was some kind of leafy salad on the side, which I gave to Zach.
Then we saw the exhibits / vendors / demos:
Then we did the whole farmer’s market area and picked up some goodies, like veggies from Green String Farm and asiagio cheese bread from Modal Bakery. We also bought a package of Veggie Beds to keep produce in. The items we get from the CSA don’t have any packaging, so we can use these for that or farmer’s market trips.
And we were talked into some fancy-pants Xroads Philippines Sea Salt – ok, not talked into it, it was soooo good!
