It’s a tough job, but somebody’s got to do it. I’m off to NYC Monday to attend the annual Fancy Food Show at the Javits Center. I’ll bring back lots of tidbits (pun intended!) about what’s hot and what’s not in the world of specialty food. Actually, they really frown on taking home samples, so I’ll do my taste-testing on the spot (being VERY careful about mixing sweet and savory!), and will bring home lots of information and ideas to share.
Wish me luck – the place gets so very hot and hectic, I can never stay as long as I’d like to, but it is a lot of fun to see what everyone’s doing, and I always run into some local people there, too.
