Conventions involving food always bring both moochers and industry types out of the woodwork. This year's International Restaurant & Foodservice Show of New York, held at the sprawling Javits Convention Center from Sunday to Tuesday, was no exception to this rule. Amid the hungry hordes who didn't know the difference between burrata and bocconcini and lamented the lack of kobe beef at the Japan Pavilion, there were some interesting moments and workshops. For those who didn't get the chance to brave the packed aisles, here's a look at the best of the show.
