How was your experience?

Clear I hated it I didn't like it It was OK I liked it I loved it!
Very disappointed. They advertised "celebrity" chefs would be there, there were none. They advertised a "cooking" demo. There was none. They advertised there would be different food booths to sample and there were 3. They gave away "door prizes" (4 cook books per person) on a first-come, first-serve basis. So walk-ins paying with cash on that day got to take home 4 wonderfully beautiful cookbooks, while those of us who purchased our e-tickets WAY in advance via Goldstar, got to stand in a long line to get our real/paper tickets and didn't end up getting ANY door prize as they were all given out to the walk-in cash paying people by the time all of us, Goldstar purchasing people got through the line. VERY unfair. Very unprofessional and unorganized. Not happy about missing out on the door prizes nor the fact that so many things were advertised and simply were not there at the event!
