It was an evening of food-talk at San Francisco's Omnivore Books. This unique store, once a butcher's shop, offers all books on everything food. Along with the selection, the store hosts frequent discussions by some of the nation's most influential culinary geniuses.
Last night's speaker was none other than Food Network's Tyler Florence. The Bay Area is lucky enough to have Tyler Florence who recently relocated to Marin County with his family from New York City. For a city based on adoration for food, it was no surprise the turnout to hear Mr. Florence speak was successful. A predominantly female audience listened intently to the charming chef and TV icon as he recounted the journey of his success. Last night was organized to celebrate Mr. Florence's latest cookbook, Tyler Florence Family Meal: Bringing People Together Never Tasted Better. However, with most book signings, the talk branched into a spontaneous discussion on owning San Francisco's Wayfare Tavern and balancing the life of a celebrity chef.
