I was a stagehand in the early 90s and once I helped on a foodie event in the Yerba Buena Gardens behind the Moscone center. There were all these chef street vendors set up. This salmon pasta was the hit of the event. My job was fire marshall so I just stood around with a fire extinguisher. I watched his whole process.... It's really a great quick meal if company shows up.
