few observations of first fest. first, great organization to putting this on, from registration, to raffles, to door prizes.etc, great food, every lap i made their way something different, from pork, pizza, gator sausage, ham, meatballs, breakfast dishes, pineapple, mac and cheese, cookies,meatloaf,steak, chicken, etc. there was always something to eat. iron chef competition was fun to watch, could not believe what each chef brought to their table to have to cook with.. every thing except the kitchen sink. next fest, i will cook, i think they had better time than people walking around. they were always busy , most knowledgable, eager to talk about what they were cooking and overall, very helpful to anybody who asked a question... last but not least, great people, ask a question and it was answered. if you have not gone to a fest, you are missing out...look forward to atlanta.
