Not all the action of SF Chefs was going on underneath the tent on Union Square in San Francisco.

One of my favorite parts of the three-day food-wine-cocktail extravaganza was “Industry Day,” when food professionals got to sit in on panel discussions and cooking demos featuring some of the Bay Area’s most talented chefs.

*William Werner of Craftsman and Wolves of San Francisco showed how he makes his best-selling “Rebel Within.” The savory cake studded with Boccalone sausage hides an oozy egg inside.

Just goes to show the most successful creations often are “mistakes.”

Werner's famed "Rebel Within'' is breakfast all in one.

It’s hard to believe that SF Chefs, that deletable extravaganza that celebrates the Bay Area’s singular food scene, is five years old already.

Last Friday was the official start of the weekend-long affair, when the mega tasting tent on Union Square in San Francisco opened with a dramatic cake-cutting with chefs Tyler Florence of Wayfare Tavern and Dominique Crenn of Atelier Crenn joining Mayor Ed Lee in the honors.

Enjoy some scenes from the first day:

Take one guess as to which chef this food station belonged to.
