08.25.11 // In Review: The Great Salsa ChampionChip 2011

It was a day for salsa and sunshine! The crowds gathered as usual, raring to go at a slew of sensational salsas with the fabulous backdrop of SF’s Ferry Building.

Competitors put on their game faces as they served up the best batches of their best salsas.

So many salsas. So hard to choose!!

Over 300 attendees ate their way through 19 different salsas. Some spicy, some sweet…most extremely delicious! Alas, you only get one vote…

The votes were in and our expert judges came to an agreement…

…and the winners. Well, they won!

As always, we can’t give enough gratitude to our generous sponsors. Thanks to Casa Sanchez, we had chips for days! Thanks to Honest Tea, our thirsts were quenched deliciously! Thanks to Method, Anolon Gourmet Cookware, Microplane, Wusthof, Chronicle Books, Omnivore Books, Bi-Rite Market, 18 Reasons, Photojojo, Blue Bottle Coffee, and Alite, and Honest, our winners floated home on a cloud! And of course, many thanks to our event partner CUESA for being all-around awesome!
