Food Show Fun!

This happens every fall. The National Bridal Market in Chicago is followed immediately by the Gordon Food Show in Grand Rapids, Michigan. Whew!!! It's been a LOOOOONNNNG week!!!!!

On Tuesday I met with our kitchen staff to talk about menu issues. We had a wonderfully productive talk about what to add, what to take out, and what to rev up! We made some great changes to our menu that will be really positive. We also made our battle plan for the food show yesterday, and went to Grand Rapids armed with a list of things we wanted to research.

We spent most of the day talking, tasting, and brainstorming about food. The result was fun, new, and different appetizers, desserts, and new and exciting presentations for sorbet courses, dessert tables, passed hors d'oeuvres and even maybe some action stations!!

Many of our thoughts and findings will make their way to the Taste of Aberdeen on November 15th. I hope all of our clients will be as excited about these new items as we are!!
