    Went yesterday-miles of booths-seemed to be overwhelmingly cheeses, olives, and italian cold cuts on first floor. Tons of samples both to taste on the spot and goodies to take home BUT be forwarned at exit the security make you dump samples into a huge container for "charity". I was totally caught offguard with this policy until they pointed out huge signs saying any samples forbidden from leaving show!! What kind of policy is that and why of all places!!! Anyway never made it to second half of show dowstairs cause was just too much after spending 3 hrs. on main floor. Was worth the visit but they need to change the taking samples home policy!!!
