AT YUMMY EATS 2012!!!


I'm in this video.. i'm not sure exactly where.. 
something like the 1minute 36 second mark.. 



     I honestly didn't know what Yummy Eats was when I first heard the buzz around the net. I figured at first that it was another food fair along the lines of Best Food Forward. Nevertheless, it didn't matter to me. My relationship with food fairs is like Kevin Costner and Baseball fields.. If you build it I will come. 

    I was pleasantly surprised to find out that it wasn't so much your average ordinary food fair, but an entire day of taste testing and cooking demonstrations! 

   With the promise of over fifty concessionaires in one tent, I couldn't let this event pass me by!


       My first Taste Test experience was the Ultimate Taste Test hosted by Our Awesome Planet, and sadly, it wasn't a very pleasant one. There was just too many people for the size of the venue and the duration that it was open. Since Yummy Eats was a whole day affair, it avoided becoming a mad house of people trying to grab some free food.  

    
       My only problem was, Rina and I just came from 'Cue: Modern Barbecue, and I felt that eating something even as small as a tic-tac would make my tummy explode.  But I'm a food blogger. (Up Music) This is the life that I have chosen. It was time to man up and solider on through. If it meant eating more red velvet cupcakes or lechon skin, then by god, I'll do it. 

THE CONCESSIONAIRES

As you can imagine, It would be difficult to do a review of every single exhibitor, so I just give you a rundown of the ones at Yummy Eats. 


Swell Sweets


Qitchen Queens


Wabi Sabi
(Vegetarian Stuff.. So I kept moving, but interesting presentation!)



QQ Mochibuns


Pepita's Kitchen Lechon De Lechon


Patisserie Caroline


Red Hot Oven and their famous Crack Pies


Chuck's Grub Fish and Chips! One of my faves!


Chicken Sarap


Even J.Co's had a booth there!


I tried some delicious cookies from Kate Bakes.. 
A caramel peca and a dark belgian Chocolate.. both were phenomenal.


Fog City Creamery


Another one of my favorites! 
Crunchy belly by Carlo's Kitchen!



Simply Pie.. Which has some awesome Bacon and Gruyere Pies! 


Cukay's Cupcakes had perhaps one of the best Red Velvet Cupcakes
 I've ever tried in my entire life. 


Chicken Delish


Bonanza Roasted Calf


Yet another one of my faves, Mama Lou's Panzarotti!
(I have yet to try the Four Cheese Panzarotti! 
Bianca is my fave.. but I love the All Meat too!)


The classic Tapa from Jam Foods & Co


Mochiko has a new flavor! 
Oreo and Milk! Awesome!!


I also got to watch the Hunt's Mom and Child Cook Off, 
which featured Mom Bloggers such as My Mom Friday..




And the eventual winner,  Jackie of Go Jackie Go
with her adorable 2 year old Happy Helper, Gabbie!


Oh and I got to meet a Blogger that I've been following for quite some time now, Franny of FrannyWanny.com



Since we haven't resolved our yaya problem yet, 
Baby Rain had to join us at Yummy Eats, 
which made going around a little bit difficult.. 
Which is why we couldn't stay for very long. 


           I had an amazing time at Yummy Eats 2012, and I'm looking forward to the next! Congratulations to Yummy Magazine and everyone involved with the successful event!
