I had the opportunity to meet Giada and I jumped on it – she was nice and friendly and seemed like a genuine person. Maybe it’s wishful thinking, but I actually believe she appreciated our interaction. Luckily, I got to her before the sweat had completely soaked into my undershirt – that wouldn’t have been the first impression I wanted to leave.
Seriously, it was hot and humid in Beverly Hills, and the most popular item seemed to be the hand-held flat fans the TASTE was passing out.
I had a handful of rum and ginger sodas again to beat the heat – I’m telling you, this is the new hot-day highball. The representative from Gosling’s told me the ginger beer will be available at BevMo in the next thirty days – keep an eye out.
I still have more coverage to come of TASTE – impressive food/drink items and my personal recommendations and final thoughts on the four-day feast.
But right now I have to put in some hours so I can keep the lights on.
