Millennium, Ann Wheat.
Miyoko gave a little talk. Here is a small portion of it that I took video of. I didn't start recording at the start of her speech and my memory card ran out of space before it was over, but this is a very nice segment right here, starting off talking about how difficult it is to give up cheese and ending with the importance of teaching others how to create great food instead of simply selling it to them, pre-made.
Oh, look, I got my picture taken with Miyoko! She's holding the card I had made some time ago for this blog. I didn't make the card to give to cookbook authors, but really just to give to people when I'd tell them about my blog and they seemed interested, but I knew it was unlikely they'd remember the web address.
And do you want to know where I went AFTER this event? Ummmm, to a Bassnectar concert, of course. Isn't that where EVERYONE went after the wine and cheese?
Nah, I kid, I'm sure no one else was going to this. My little sister loves this kind of stuff, but I've never listened to Bassnectar before in my life, and it was crazy, and I took a series of videos of me talking to my camera and showing you the effed-up kids being on ecstasy and dressing in few clothes and dancing a lot and balloons dropping from the ceiling. I had moved to the very top of the upper balcony to watch the scene, because it seemed like this was probably the best place to go for a woman who will be 30 in under two months and prefers to listen to Sharon Van Etten (seriously, click that link to hear one of my favorite songs ever). But, like I say in the video, "Good for them, they're young."
What fun in San Francisco! One thing's for sure: I need to get my butt over to eat at Millenium!
