When I walked in I saw people waiting a line. I walked towards to the crowds and Honey Smoked Fish Company was serving fresh salad and their smoked salmon. I also decided to stand in line! I liked the smoky flavored smoked salmon and their energy of promoting their product! The next aisle, I found Japan Pavilion. Japanese food and products are always special. I’m very interested in their products. In this expo, I saw 3 Japanese knife companies, Aoki Hamono Seisakusho Co., Ltd, Kawamura Hamono Co., Ltd., and Japanese Knife Imports. Japanese knives are more diverse in design, aesthetic style, and materials than any other knife making tradition in the world.
At Food Trends Experience area, exhibitors are offering healthy choices – gluten free, coconut products, and natural and organic food. Probiotic Lifeway Kefir is my favorite. All natural, gluten free, 99% lactose free!
If your restaurant use 30 dozen eggs a day, I recommend Egg King machine! Egg breaking machine cracks, extracts and blends in 1 minute!
