Adam Hinojosa is Chef de Cuisine at Barrel Head Brewhouse in San Francisco.
What was the food highlight of your year?
My highlight would have to be taking home the Golden Noodle from the 5th annual sMacdown. It's nice to get out of the restaurant and do some backyard type events for great causes. 1st place trophies ain't bad either.
What was the music highlight of your year?
I don't get out much but when I do it's for a Pigeon Jon show. This year wasn't any different. Touring to promote his album, All The Roads, Jon manages to go into small SF venues and completely rock the show. I always insist that he come in where ever I'm at and eat some good food before he gets back on the road. This year he had a very talented musician by the name of Peter Daily touring with him. What a great dude that not only has a new fan in me also a new fan of my burgers.
Was there a moment when food and music came together in a memorable way?
My convergence of food and music comes from San Francisco's oldest foot race. Weird, I know. There I was slinging about 20 million tiny burgers when a marching band made its way int the dinning room and started belting out thunderous versions of 80's rock classics. Only Bay 2 Breakers.
