    Beyond the Plate is an online, interactive resource center where professionals and foodies can learn about and discuss new products, marketplace trends, and the art and enjoyment of good food. Visitors can access a wide range of food information, including recipes, training videos and interesting articles about food, dining, and the culinary lifestyle.
