Paté and popcorn and pastries—oh my!

NASFT (that’s the National Association for the Specialty Food Trade) held their 53rd Summer Fancy Food Show at the Javits Center in NYC last week and what a show it was. It seemed every square inch of the place was abuzz with antipasti and olive oil, cheese and chocolate, salsas and sauces and seemingly every type of food and beverage you could imagine. Woe to the poor soul who ate right before entering the exhibit hall, where some [how many??] specialty food purveyors from every corner of the globe were there, strutting and sampling the mouthwatering fruits of their labors. For the first time, there was a dedicated area for natural and organic foods. There was also an enhanced product awards competition, and all the usual educational workshops. Did you attend? We’d love to hear what you did at Fancy Food and what you fancied the most?
