    Thank you for the info. Very disappointing to see the Culinary Demos go from 3 to 2 to now 1 per day during the week.

    Oh my gosh… MY EXCITEMENT CANNOT BE CONTAINED!!! What jumped out at me after first glance: everything at Coastal Eats, India, and Thailand (YUM… all of it), and that passion fruit cheesecake with macadamia nuts at Hawaii!
