Live Blogging Chew Chew Fest: Fruity Gazpacho, Samosa

Blurt Ed. Note: Food Editor Suzanne Podhaizer is live blogging the Green Mountain Chew Chew Fest today at the Burlington Waterfront.

3.5 hours in, it's raining, and I'm still going strong! My recent acquisitions included a refreshing, fruity gazpacho from Tilley's Cafe, a golden-brown, steak-n-cheese samosa from the Samosaman and an ear of grilled corn with butter, salt and lime from the Dismas House.

The chilled soup (3 tokens) was a great way to break up the heavier items that many places are offering. It had a hint of sweetness, but wasn't super sweet. I was really happy to have it.

Samosaman owner Fuad Ndibalema of Barre is on hand to sell his filled triangles (3 tokens), and he assures me that there will be curry and rice very soon. He's also got a beautiful sign and very cool aprons. You'll see them when I add the pictures!

And the corn, well, it's perfect: Slightly charred on the outside, with lots of butter and a wedge of lime to squeeze over it. The only problem is that it's hard to blog with butter all over your fingers.
