 The main attraction for most people that attended the NRA Show was the authentic Japanese culinary products. The exhibition provided an opportunity to test items that are not available in Chicago. As equally exciting was being able to have a special demonstration, on stage, from a world-famous Chicago chef. They touched on what ingredients they use and what inspires their work most.
