I'm off to the Tasty Dog & Pony Show

up in San Francisco. I'll leave Friday evening..sleep all the way up..wake up at the Ferry Building Saturday morning and then, off to register officially, throw my things into the postage stamp size room and then...who knows. The Bridge? Golden Gate Park? The Palace of Fine Arts? Sunday...it's all about the Trade Show.

You know, of course, I've already done my OpenTable.com trolling.

I'll leave you with this "hot off the food presses" piece of news to savor.
Spice company McCormick teamed up with some of the nation's hottest chefs, television cooking personalities and cookbook authors to create the McCormick Flavor Forecast — their top 10 list of flavors for 2007. McCormick predicts these trendy flavor pairings — spanning sweet, hot, tangy, bitter, sour and everything in between — will be influencing the foods eaten this year and in the future.

The following is their top 10 list of flavors:
  • Clove and Green Apple
  • Thyme and Tangerine
  • Tellicherry Black Pepper and Berry
  • Sea Salt and Smoked Tea
  • Lavender and Honey
  • Crystallized Ginger and Salted Pistachio
  • Cumin and Apricot
  • Toasted Mustard and Fennel Seeds
  • Wasabi and Maple
  • Caramelized Garlic and Riesling Vinegar
y'all agree? Talk amongst yourselves.
I'll see if I can stop in and do a post right after the show to share anything mindboggling or palate popping. San Francisco....HERE I COME! (right back where I started from)

I know I'm in bad shape when I read that list and wonder, "How would those be as soap scents?" :) Actually some of them would probably be quite good!

Sorry, but what is "tellicherry," aside from a place in India?
