Fancy Food Show Report...
To sum it up: Uneventful. The best thing about last month's
Fancy Food Show in San Francisco was that it was more
balanced in products—not just ALL salsas, or ALL olive oils,
or ALL barbecue sauce. Instead, we saw a better variety of
merchandise. However: We did find three really unusual
products that taste terrific—besides being unique. Look for
future coverage on:
- the beverage—a carbonated drink made from, well,
hemp. With a THC content of less than .03, it's legal. Can't
say we experienced any buzz from it, but the pleasant flavor
had a spicy zing to refresh our tired souls.
- a never-before imported fruit from Chile, related
to the papaya. Quite extraordinary. This product is popping
up in gourmet stores and the best restaurants. We'll have a
story and recipes coming up.
- Vodka Cheese:
- Swedish cheese injected with vodka and
aged for 14 months. A subtle but exciting taste, available in
three vodka flavors: regular, currant and pepper (using
Absolut, of course!). Skol!
Lamalle & Books For Cooks Bond
Our friends at Lamalle Kitchenware in NYC have revamped
their store and their market. Many of you know "Books For
Cooks" from their online store in our own Shopping.
Now, they have a physical space in the Lamalle shop. Known
as *the* cookware shop for professionals, Lamalle has
expanded into the home cook market, snatching up a
kitchenware buyer from Dean & Deluca, pumping in classical
music, knocking down walls to let in more light, and offering
celebrity book signings. Be sure to visit them next time you're
in the Big Apple.
