San Francisco’s summer of food-laden festivals officially kicked off this weekend as SF Chefs hit Union Square with a who’s who roster of the city’s best chefs, bartenders and winemakers showing off their skills. Now in its fifth year, this event seems to get bigger and more impressive each time it rolls around. As always, the Bay’s summer bounty of juicy tomatoes, sweet corn, and luscious salmon made it onto many of the dishes, along with a strong showing of house-cured charcuterie. For the thirsty, cocktails were king. Here are a few highlights from the Tasting Tent:

Stephanie Hua is the creator of Lick My Spoon
, a place for all things delicious. So far she has learned that she very much enjoys salted caramel anything, a good soup dumpling is worth a scalded tongue, and there is no room in life for non-fat cheese and crappy chocolate. Also, a barrel of cheese balls never ends well.
Stephanie has been known to choose her company based on how much they can pack it down. Ability to endure cramped quarters, sketchy back alleys, and uncharted paths to seek out that special dish is also a plus in her book. If you fit the criteria, drop a note. You’ll probably get along just fine.
