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.
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.
