“YOLO” (SF Chefs “Take the Cake” contest winner by Paul Padua from The Ahwahnee)

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.
