AVID 6 Event at Hiro Ballroom Review




I went with my coworkers yesterday to the AVID demo for the new version 6 software at Hiro Ballroom. I was especially excited to see the 3D Demo and eat some hors d'oeuvres. 

The new version of Media Composer has a lot of really cool features like 64 bit, different frame rates in one timeline, you can use any I/O device to output or capture, tabs, 3D etc. You can check out all the new features here: http://www.avid.com/US/products/Media-Composer?cmpid=70140000000TgRp

{Arancini - Fried Risotto Balls with Tomato Sauce}

{Arancini interior- Cheesy and delicious perfect for the winter time}

{Salmon and Cream Cheese on Foccacia}

{Steak Carpaccio with Truffle Oil on Foccacia}

The hors d'oeuvres were decent. I really liked the Arancini. It was nicely fried, cheesy and warm. When I bit in, the center oozed out creamy risotto. The marinara sauce on top gave it great balance and acidity. It was the perfect appetizer to eat on a cold, rainy day. 

Below is a link to Giada Di Laurentis's recipe for Arancini ("little Orange" in Italian).  
If you want to try it, I say 'tis the season. Challah!
