It was a real honor to be invited to guest judge the Kosherfest New Product Competition. I expected to taste some delicious food but I also lucked out by making great new friends.
Here's the crew - we saved the wine for last.
The 2015 New Product Competition only whet my appetite for my next judging gig. On Wednesday November 11th at 1pm I'm judging CKCA's Iron Chef Competition at Kosherfest. Lucky I love to eat! Hope I get to see and hug some of you there!
