We attended the opening day of the Western Foodservice & Hospitality Expo and were pleased with what we experienced there. It is taking place for three days at the Los Angeles Convention Center in the West Wing so there is time to experience what the Expo has to offer on Monday and Tuesday Aug. 29 & 30.
Hours are from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. and our advice is to arrive early since there is so much to see and do and taste an extraordinary number of interesting food items.
And if you are over 21 you can visit the alcohol section with a number of craft breweries present as well as spirits and wines.
A special event on Monday is the Italian Reception offering "The Extraordinary Italian Taste".
On Tuesday there will be a New Products Showcase.
The Italian event is only one of several International booths including a Japan Pavilion and Sabor Latino.
Some five hundred companies are represented at the Show.
