Back From the NRA show

I’m finally back from Chicago where Furmano’s participated in the NRA (National Restaurant Association)… not the gun show.  I’m pretty sure I have to explain that to everyone when I say that’s where I’m going.  We always have fun and Chicago is a great city for this show.  The McCormick Place Convention Center is centrally located with a lot of great places to eat nearby and plenty of things to see.  I always come away a little happier (and a little fatter).

National Restaurant Show 2015

For the past several years, Furmano’s has taken part in the National Restaurant Association show in Chicago.It’s a fantastic show with lots of great eats. Companies from all over the world come out to hock their wares in search of new customers. 

Chef Paul, a Certified Research Chef, is a 2002 graduate of Yorktowne Business Institute School of Culinary Arts in York, Pennsylvania. There he was class valedictorian and received the Chef Michael Hostetter Memorial Award for Culinary Excellence. He is a member of the Research Chefs Association and the Refrigerated Foods Association and has over 15 years of experience.

Working in restaurants since the age of 16, Paul has spent most of his life working with food; a love he developed in family style restaurants, honed in school, and practiced in fine dining establishments. Never one to be defining himself with a particular cuisine, Paul explores the world's palate with excitement. "The world is full of people who have made incredible foods with what is in their backyard and we now have access to all those wonderful flavors and combinations," he says. That love and excitement for flavor he now brings to Furmano Foods.
