Yesterday, USA Today emailed us this notification: “Congratulations! National Fiery Foods & BBQ Show – Albuquerque is one of the nominees in our latest 10Best Readers’ Choice travel award contest!”
Okay, there wasn’t actually a hurricane at this year’s National Fiery Foods and Barbecue Show in Albuquerque. We had wind and rain with a healthy dash of chaos to really set off the event, though. There just wasn’t any of the downside you get in an actual tropical storm.
This year’s National Fiery Foods and Barbecue Show is going so well it took me until now to post an update about it. Saturday was even more hectic (and a lot of fun). Here’s a brief snapshot of a photo gallery for you, including a couple pics of celebrity guest chef Norman Van Aken giving his tasty fish demo on Friday night.
Time to pack a weekend bag before I fly out to Albuquerque for the National Fiery Foods and Barbecue Show in the a-m. I’ll be posting plenty of photos in case you can’t make it, but if you can, you should. Here’s a tentative schedule of what you can expect when you’re not busy prowling the aisles for fire:
Rick will demonstrate Taxi Stand Jerk Chicken at the Fiery Foods & BBQ Show.
We just uploaded the ad for the National Fiery Foods and Barbecue Show to YouTube or you can check it out here. The show kicks off Friday, February 28.
The theme of this year’s National Fiery Foods & Barbecue Show is “Going Tropical” in honor of Chef Norman Van Aken who’s been called “the founding father of New World Cuisine,” a fusion of a Latin, Caribbean, Asian, African, and American flavors. Chef Norman is not only debuting his new book at the show, No Experience Necessary, an autobiography of his culinary career, but also will perform two tropical cooking demonstrations.
