So where was I?! Oh that’s right, the Welcome Reception & Street Food Fare!
When we got to the Herbst Pavilion we were given a number so that we could be organized and give our foodie gifts! I was a 6, which was quite confusing because it was right next to the 9 table. These amazing cheese and fruit platters were on every table!
I started off with a glass of Contra vino.
Aside from nibbling on the cheese and fruit platter this was the first bite I had. It was some kind of cookie?
Once everyone got settled we did some table talking and gift exchanging. I was lucky enough to receive a gift from Anne of Fannetastic Food! She gave me homemade oatmeal banana pumpkin cookies, which are delicious! and BLUE UNC hot chocolate! I’ll definitely be sure to post a picture of that when I try it :) You can check out Anne’s recipe for her delicious cookies. I might be making these myself sometime soon!
Then it was time for us to check out the food!
First up to try was vegan paella.
This sandwich was phenomenal. Definitely in the top 10 favorite things of the weekend.
Tacolicious was delicious!
This dish was pretty interesting. It was a sushi/taco combination. Pretty tasty but a little hard to eat!
Pork belly sandwich.
And I finished the night off with some delicious ice cream!
It was an amazing night and I met some great people! I left feeling really full and headed back to rest up for the next day! I’m off to go to the farewell brunch but I’ll update about the rest of my foodie travels soon!
