The annual Florida Restaurant Association trade show was in Orlando this weekend. Owners, managers, chefs and students from all over the state were here to try the latest food from suppliers, and to be inspired to prepare the best food in the world.
Above is the dessert portion of the Loews Royal Pacific team entry in one of the professional competitions. It’s a Banana Brulee Tart, with Dark Chocolate Mousse, Peach Sorbet and Strawberry Coulis.
The show had a special section of first-time vendors. Among the things to discover was a vendor selling chocolate pizza! One of the best flavors of the chocolate pizza was Sangria, and it was heavy with bits of fruit.
