I wasn't alone with this try all mentality. The most popular booths were definitely the ones with food demos. In the Fresh Market section of SN we write a lot about the power of demos, and walking around I saw the demos work their magic.
The Department of New Mexico also fired up the grill (see left), offering slices of quesadillas made with New Mexico chili peppers. The cheese and the tortilla softened the blow of the spicy pepper.
HBF International took another approach and offered kiwi berry samples along with muffins and a kiwi berry drink (see right). The drink, served in mini martini glasses, was made with vodka infused with the berries.
