Dear Friends of the Forum,
I am delighted to be assisting with the second publication of the International Food & Beverage Forum Newsletter.
Recently, I had the opportunity to have lunch with Corby Hall, one of our benefactors. They have generously contin-ued their annual financial support. In addition, they have offered to host a reception during the NRA Show in May 2017 as an opportunity for forum members to meet once again. While we have not yet confirmed a date, it would be an excellent opportunity to reunite, say hello to old friends and meet new members and supporters of the Forum.
The NRA Show takes place in May 20 – 23, 2017 in Chicago. A firm date will be established in the not too dis-tant future. We hope you can join as we raise a glass or two and toast Kurt Fischer and continue with his legacy and vision.
On the subject of benefactors, it is our hope that you will give our supporters an opportunity to meet and at least share their offerings. There is no expectation or guarantee of sales but it shows that we have an open door poli-cy through our common thread.
The recipes included this month have been designed by our Executive Chef Duff Lampard and Executive Pastry Chef Mia De Ala here at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre. We hope you enjoy.
All the best,
