Foodie Weekend

It started on Saturday with Dim Sum. Yum. So much food.

Don't know what these were but they were DELICIOUS. First time I've tried them.

Sunday it was on to CATCH the Nova Scotia Seafood Festival. Great seafood, wine and music along with demonstrations and competitions.

This was Anthony Sedlak, one of the chefs from the food network doing a salmon demonstration. What a fun and engaging host.

This was not what he made but isn't it beautiful. Poached salmon w/new potatoes, Tokyo turnips, radish & tarragon and other yummy things. Made by Feisty Chef, Renée Lavallée

Anthony got down on his knees to plate the food to make it easier for everyone to see.
At one point he calls out to the audience, what do you call it when you roll up herbs and chop up finely? I immediately think chiffonade. A woman near me then calls out "chiffonade." "Hey," he yells, "You just won yourself a cookbook!" Drat. I should have thought out loud:)
