Earlier this week, we attended the Star Chef's Rising Stars San Francisco tasting at the St. Francis Hotel. Star Chefs is an online community devoted to serving the food industry, and their event was a showcase/contest open to industry insiders and the public alike.

With small serving tables, each uniquely decorated in a theme that reflected the decor of the respective restaurants, the chefs plated up small bites of two dishes each.
