Food from the Heart 2010

With cupid in the air, fall in love with your favorite Napa Valley wines when the Napa Valley Vintners partners up with Slow Food San Francisco and San Francisco Ferry Building to bring you Food from the Heart.

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 8 p.m. 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 - 4 per taste) and local Napa Valley Vintners will pour wine ($2-4 per taste). And for chocolate lovers, 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 the Ferry Plaza Farmers Market to Slow Food Terra Madre in the Fall of 2010. Tickets are available the night of the at tables throughout the Marketplace.

On Saturday the romantic revlry continues with music in the Marketplace, chef demos and special Valentine offerings from merchants.
