Greetings Chef
Do you know if the ULC has any remaining rooms available for the NRA?
I'm also hearing some big players have backed out of the show this year. Sara Lee, McCain, Anchor, Pilgrims Pride.

I'm curious what you're hearing about the show this year.

That I certainly don't remember. But you sound like you hang around Tim Rosendahl to much. He has amazing ideas and products that are unique.

Will do Chef. To jog your memory, I think we showed you those little towelettes that look like an alka seltzer tablet, but when you add water, they open up into a napkin...

It is quite possible and probable. Mr A is certainly someone that will be missed in our profession and especially at our reception. Please stop and say hello when you come to the reception on Monday, May 19. Please stay in touch.
