Monterey Bay Aquarium Cooking for Solutions 2009

Hi everyone, Victoria here! I had so much fun attending the Monterey Bay Aquarium Cooking for Solutions that I thought I would share about the fun night.  Food Network’s Alton Brown hosted the event and Scott was lucky enough to get a picture with him. It was a great fundraiser for the Aquarium and we were happy to support.  The event helped to bring awareness that our choices in what we buy and eat have a great impact on the environment. Many great chefs came to show how we can help protect the health of the soil, water, and ocean wildlife. They had great sushi and seafood that and I enjoyed sampling. Our booth was located right next to the great people at Scheid Vineyards (one of the wineries used to make our wine truffles) and was right in front of the Jelly Fish for a beautiful backdrop. It was a very successful event and everyone enjoyed our Sea Salt Caramels and Truffles. We hope to be invited back next year!
