Maker Faire

The Maker Faire starts tomorrow at the San Mateo County Expo Center. I’ve attended both years it’s been in existence, but it can be hard for me to find a meaningful connection at a giant event that has hundreds of things going on at the same time, with thousands of people all trying to do them.

So I thought I’d peruse the schedule in advance, and I was very pleased to see that there is an entire strand devoted to food. Check out the schedule for Homegrown Village, which is conveniently located next to the Diet Coke & Mentos fountains and the rocket launch area.

There are also quite a few food events on the Maker Square stage:

  • Saturday 11:00 AM – 12:00 PM “Making Marshmallows” by Karen Solomon
  • Saturday 1:30 PM – 2:30 PM “Edible Pursuits Trivia” by Edible San Francisco
  • Saturday 2:30 PM – 3:00 PM “Homemade Chocolate Truffle Making” by Charles Chocolates
  • Saturday 3:00 PM – 4:00 PM “Break the Rules After Knowing Them: DIY Food and Wine Pairings” by Eden Canyon Vineyards
  • Saturday 4:30 PM – 5:30 PM “Preserving Summer In A Jar” by Alicia Preston
  • Saturday 5:30 PM – 6:30 PM “Affinage: The Art of Aging Cheese” by Kim Iannotti

Maybe I’ll finally get to meet Bonnie Powell!

If that’s not enough to get you to go, then I’ll play the trump card:

Giant! Motorized! Cupcakes!

    I know one of the cupcakes! (Don’t think she’s in that photo.) She’ll be there, too.

    I’ll go some day, but i’ll be home working on one of my projects this weekend.
