4 May 2018 Edition Chef Gregoire McClain Reviewed on 23 May 2018 Chef at Secret Ingredient Caterers
When talking to Sue let her explain/scan why her product will be good for me. Tom Mohamed Ming aren't needed. Need more Vendors interested in the small guys like me. Caterers independents w receipts of $500k or less. Loved demonstration seminars.

Getting to and from the parking is confusing due to the venue's insufficient signage - it would be helpful for attendees if you would post additional temporary signs directing attendees
