The National Restaurant Association's annual NRA Show has had its finger on the pulse of moving the industry forward for over 90 years. Celebrity chefs, top restaurateurs and leading industry pros from across the country and around the world (109 countries in 2009) come together every year to see and sample the future.
Are you feeling a bit left out of the mix? Don't be! We encourage you to see and be seen, to listen and learn, to speak and be heard. It's never too late (or early for that matter!) to get in on the action. Keep abreast of the latest news, updates and discussions. Staying connected with the NRA Show, the International Wine, Spirits & Beer Event (IWSB) and industry is now possible 365 days a year. Impossible you say? Think again! You can find us in a not-so-distant land we affectionately call "social-media land": Join, follow and watch your community in action.
On a side note (or dish!), nationally acclaimed pastry chef, cookbook author, TV personality and NRA Show dessert darling Gale Gand offers up this sweet recipe to help temporarily appease your NRA Show craving. Enjoy!
