fancy food show

last monday i spent the day at the fancy food show.

here is a list of some of the items i found exciting/intriguing/delicious:

  • i've talked about fentimans before. their botanically brewed sodas are almost always on hand at our house. on monday i tried their rose lemonade. it's so good and refreshing. rose flavor can be sort of tricky and they get it just right.
  • seahive, which is rubbed with wildflower honey and salt from beehive cheese was lovely.
  • poco dolce has been a favorite of mine for a couple years. apparently they introduced the popcorn toffee squares for the holidays but they were such a big hit, they're keeping it. it's their sea salt toffee with air popped popcorn covered in chocolate. need i say more?
  • a super cool company, who makes wonderful artisan salumi is la quercia. i only tried their proscuitto and their speck and both were delicious.
  • i also tried a few cheeses from belgium that were amazing. wavreumont, a washed rind, raw milk cheese was my favorite.
  • finally, i have to mention happy goat caramels. they're yummy! and, if you didn't already, guess, they're made with goat milk.
