Folks arrived in their sparkliest best dress to enjoy gastronomy to the nth power at the 2010 Gingerbread City Gala competition that took place on December 1st here in San Diego, California.
There was a diverse array of amazing edible structures by other gingerbread artists.
There was also a selection of astonishing foods – tiny entrée portions and pairings from some of the city’s top savory chefs. I encountered molecular gastronomy courtesy of the chef of BluePoint Coastal Cuisine. White Ponzu Nitro shot off in my mouth like a string of Wolf Pack firecrackers. It was how I always imagined Coke a Cola plus Pop Rocks would be minus the exploding cheeks.
I love being a part of this event! Here are photos of my structure.
