Well the Auckland Food Show starts next week - and is a big deal. Talk about massive - at least 40,000 people are expected to attend.
Is is held at the ASB Showgrounds and runs from 10am till 5pm.
The first day - is the special day - which is limited to 4000 people - and focuses on trade, restaurants and media - the aim to make things a little more relaxed.... a day when buyers can talk to stall holders - without being jostled by the food and wine crazed masses.
There are hundreds of exhibitors - all in one place.
Saturday is the "big" day with the hordes swooning around the wine displays - guzzling with gay abandon.
