The SF hounds are holding a picnic on October 4 that we hope will be an ultimate food event. Can you recommend a specialty, perhaps local food item for inclusion in a Hounds Favorites tasting (and for use as prizes for other picnic categories)? Ideally wed especially like to feature stuff that can subsequently be ordered by Hounds, either via mail or the internet. Well compile a list after the event with all the items and how to get them.
This is going to be a big event for about 100 hounds and details on reserving a place will be coming soon. We are also running it as a fund-raiser to help support the continuation of this great resource so if youd like to actually donate an item for this regional foods tasting, youll have both the thanks of the organizers and the happy knowledge that your contribution will help to support the ChowHound website.
I'd especially like to include some mail order Hawaiian goodies. I already have the MacNut Company, for nuts and their Hawaiian grown chocolate. How about some other interesting suggestions.
