Just back from a trip to Chicago to visit the International home and housewares exhibition where I became totally excited about everything new coming to the market this year. It was my first time at the show, and the information, demonstrations, chef presentations, and merchandise was amazing. So many new creative people are working to make our homes and restaurant kitchens so much better.
Since the show was international, there were exhibitors from a variety of countries showing their products. Of course, many of my favorites from France, Italy and Sweden were represented. The show also includes education and information with the media in mind.
I will be featuring many products on the blog in the coming weeks as well as many new recipes, so if you are interested, keep watching for everything new and fun for 2017. Here are a few photos from the show. I was inspired by many chefs, including Todd English, David Burke and Pascale Jaubert. With 25 chefs scheduled for the cooking theater alone, the excitement fills the conference center every day. Even more chefs are on hand at the individual booths which entice the registrants to learn and experience so many new products.
Looking forward to sharing so much more with you. If you love everything about cooking, baking, and the kitchen, you will not be disappointed this year. Here are some of my favorite new things from Emile Henry.
