At the beginning of 2015, I was randomly offered a chance to attend the Specialty Food Association’s Winter Fancy Food Show. I stepped inside the huge San Francisco convention center and I WAS HOOKED. I was amazed at the variety of cheeses, wines, snacks, sauces, and small businesses that were featured at the show. We got to try things that hadn’t even hit the shelves yet, that were in beta testing with the specialty food market. And the samples! All the samples. I left with two tote bags full of seasonings, salts, cheeses, dips, drinks. It’s enough to fill your pantry for a month.
Luckily, I managed to get in and register so I get to go again this year! Serious foodie excitement happening here.
If you’re interested/hungry, the tickets are still in pre-sale: Fancy Food!
Now, I’ll be having dreams until January of imported pate and gorgonzola.
Until then, I guess we should focus on Thanksgiving and the winter holidays, right?
