Personal Note from Sora
Can you believe it’s August already. It’s like the summer is just flying by…
So now a while back—I found myself at Jacob Javits Convention Center where attended The Fancy FoodShow. Talk about fun and talk about food.
There were endless tastings and endless choices but when it came down to the nitty gritty I found a few great food items that I wanted to share with my Make Peace with Food Newsletter readers.
I just thought that they were awesome.
So here we go…..
So the first vendor that I wanted to share with you is The Plymouth Cheese Company. The Plymouth Cheese Factory in Plymouth, Vermont has been producing high quality, raw milk artisan cheeses for over 125 years. The factory was built by Calvin Coolidges’s father in 1890. Today, Plymouth Artisan Cheese is an award-winning, handcrafted revival of the original recipe, which is in turn based on the rich and full-bodied granular curd cheeses the first English Settlers brought to the New World.
I really loved the packaging of the cheese and they tasted great!
The second oh so yum product was the fudge created by Calico Cottage which is located in Amityville, New York.
So all of the fudge looked sooooo wonderful that seriously I didn’t know which one to try. But at the finish line came the Chewy Praline Vanilla Fudge with a praline and peanut inside and a caramel swirl on top. Need I say more!!!
So then I found a Japanese Company called www.souton-h.com which served the most delicious jams that I have ever tasted. Check out the uniquely flavored jams below…
Next came some more fun foods…
I found a company called Barnana whose candies are both tasty and delicious and are made from upcycled bananas (upcycled bananas are bananas that are not perfect for sale and would otherwise go to waste).
They are then combined with organic coffee, organic peanut butter, organic coconut and let’s not forgetLOL organic chocolate!!!
And last but not least look at this talk about packaging… Have you even seen such whatever labels for peanuts. I thought that it was pretty original.
So I followed Andrew Zimmern’s advice at this Fancy Food Show!-If it looks good, eat it and was just a whole lot of fun!!
