Shrunken Portions

Video from the Atlantic City Convention Center, on April 3rd, where food vendors were pitching their products to restaurant owners. The theme:value, value, value. The price of everything a chef needs is soaring, so there was a lot of talk about to how scale back portion sizes, as subtly as possible. Video by David Segal/The Washington Post
