CRFA Show 2010

Ah, the CRFA show.

In a nutshell, it’s a packed showroom with everything relating to the restaurant world that you can imagine. Food competitions, tilt skillet retailers, kangaroo meat companies, snow cone makers, popcorn machines, banquette resellers. The list goes on and on.

The best part of course, were the beer “samples”. “Can I have one, oh and one for my friend?”. Thanks to Amsterdam and Mill Street Breweries. The sad and tired looks on your faces didn’t go unnoticed, despite our coming back to your booths two hundred times.  If a person could get a liquor license in that joint I am certain they would make a fortune. Everyone was lining up for alcohol thinking it was the %#@ food and wine show!

Lauren and I got up on the stage with Rob Montgomery to receive a lesson on mixing a perfect whiskey sour.  Kevin Brauch and his rosy cheeks had left earlier to proceed onto another event.

We saw Chef Lynn Crawford do a demo on Berkshire pork from Black Bow Farms Inc.  What lovely people.

Here are some photos from the event:
