Mike Rodemann with Hillson Nut Company talked Pecans at the Mid-America Restaurant Expo, Episode 10

From the show floor, at the Mid-America Restaurant Expo, I had a chance to talk with a good friend of mine Mike Rodemann, Vice President of Operations, The Hillson Nut Company, Cleveland, OH.  The Hillson Nut Company was an exhibitor at the the Mid-America trade show.  The trade show was designed around the Pizza, Ice Cream, Food Truck, Casual and Fine dinning businesses.  Mike and I talked about making special nut recipes for ice cream shops and how nuts really do enhance the flavor of ice cream. Mike also told me that ice cream owners should be aware of the current….. bubble in the pecan market.

Stay tuned for a great conversation with Mike Rodemann about how nuts…… make good ice creams….. taste great!
