Submitted by the Event Organizer
Get into the Valentine’s Day spirit by strolling through the candlelit Grand Nave of the Ferry Building Marketplace as the 7th annual “Food From the Heart” kicks off on Friday, February 12th, with a benefit for Slow Food San Francisco..
Experience the beauty of the waterfront by night as the entire Marketplace will be open from 5 to 8pm for Valentine shopping. There will be tango and salsa dancing, and classical music to serenade visitors. Bring your appetites as the merchants and restaurateurs of the Marketplace will offer chocolate tastings, seasonal hors d’oeuvres ($2 per taste) and local Napa Valley Vintners will pour wine ($4 per glass).
And for the chocolate lovers out there, local confectioner Michael Recchiuti and Parisian artist Mark Alsterlind will demonstrate what happens when art mixes with confections by painting with chocolate.
Proceeds from purchases of wine tasting and hors d’oeuvres benefit Slow Food San Francisco sending a delegate from CUESA to Terra Madre in the Fall of 2010.
