Food bloggers, restaurant owners, gourmet vendors, and other assorted foodies alike kicked off the summer in style with the three-day tour de force that is the Summer Fancy Food Show, which took over Manhattan’s massive Javits Center in its entirety from June 26th to 28th. Summer Fancy Food is the most exciting Specialty Foods Association event of the year, and SFFS16, as it will now be known in food tradeshow history, did not disappoint!

With over 5,000 exhibitors from around the globe, the SFFS is virtually impossible to thoroughly distill. In fact, this was the single largest show ever held at Javits to date! As usual, we arrived with an appetite, a huge empty bag, and eyes wide open for spotting the most striking booth displays, stand-out product packaging and most unusual products of the show. Here are some of our favorite discoveries!

Kate Weiser Chocolate

Kate Weiser Chocolates are miniature works of confectionery art, and they taste just as good as they look!

Danas Bakery Macarons

Feast your eyes on this colorful tower of gourmet French Macarons from Dana’s Bakery. We tried the strawberry (pale pink, third row up from the bottom) and immediately declared this Macaron to be the Best Ever!

Goodie Girl Cookie Display

Oh my! The deluge of psychedelic colors coming from the Goodie Girl Cookies display gave us acid flashbacks! Located close by in New Jersey, Goodie Girl makes tiny, delicious gluten-free cookies that will knock your socks off. We are especially partial to the Midnight Brownie variety. Mmm…Brownie…

Editor Showcase Presents: Cooking and Entertaining, 2014!

It’s never too early to start planning for your holiday celebrations, and Editor Showcase kicked off this season with their hotly–anticipated Cooking and Entertaining showcase at the Marriott Marquis in Times Square. Let’s take a look at a few of the standout new and favorite products from the show!

Davios Pasta Chips

People know the Davios brand for their own award-winning Northern Italian Steakhouses, but Davios has also gotten into the snack foods game with their line of gourmet Pasta Chips. These all natural chips come in a variety of sweet and savory flavors and are made with premium semolina, then quick fried for a light and crispy treat. We especially enjoyed the Cinnamon Pasta Chips which are dusted lightly with sugar, and taste extra delicious accompanied by a sweet dip that you can make with cream cheese.

Savory Past Chip flavors include Parmesan, Buffalo, Tomato with a hint of Basil, and Herb.

Sartori Cheese Display

Everyone knows that the celebration isn’t complete until you bring out the cheese, and we saw a couple of our favorites exhibiting at Editor Showcase. Sartori Cheese always has something new and delicious and we enjoyed sampling their BellaVitano and Sarvecchio Parmesan artisanal cheeses. Learn more about Sartori Cheese and plan your gourmet food gift giving at Sartori Cheese Dot Com.

Roth Cheese Display and Signage

Roth cheese never fails to showcase some kind of spectacular and delicious product, including their excellent fondues and scrumptious Raclettes! At Editor Showcase we had an opportunity to taste their Grand Cru Alpine–style cheese. Inspired by the tradition of classic Gruyere, Roth Grand Cru has delicious nutty undertones with a hint of fruitiness and a mellow finish – perfect for all of your holiday entertaining needs!

Sara Lee Bread Signage

Sara Lee baked goods have been around since I was an egg, and it’s a trusted, high quality favorite brand for many. But Sara Lee is about so much more than the delicious frozen cakes you grew up coveting.

Sara Lee Bread

Anyone looking to trim a few calories from their diet while not losing out on great taste will be excited to hear about Sara Lee’s line of Delightful breads, each with only 45 calories per slice. These breads are soft, fresh and have a whole grain taste with absolutely nothing missing but the calories. Delightful Bread comes in many varieties including White, Wheat, Whole Wheat, Healthy Multi-Grain and Oatmeal.

Lee Kum Kee Sauces Signage

Lee Kum Kee may not be a household name, but it is the leader of authentic Chinese sauces, bringing delicious flavors to consumer kitchen tables as well as restaurant menus for over 126 years.  Lee Kum Kee showed that they are as invested in innovation as they are in tradition by premiering a couple of exciting new products.

Lee Kum Kee Sriracha Ketchup & Mayo

Outdoor grilling season may be over, but you might need to bring that activity indoors so you have a chance to try Lee Kum Kee Sriracha Chili Ketchup and Sriracha Mayo — bringing an irresistible, spicy twist to two classic condiments that are must–haves for your pantry! You have got to try them directly on a sandwich or burger, or as an ingredient  in a dip, sauce or marinade.  Learn more about Lee Kum Kee  products and get great recipe ideas at This Link!

Goodie Girl Cookies Display

Gluten Free is a buzz phrase that is continuously being taken in innovative culinary directions, and there are always new products to try for those on wheat-free diets. Goodie Girl is a baking company based in Tribeca, NY that specializes in creating gluten-free cookies with surprising flavors and exciting twists on cookie classics. People are calling Goodie Girl the most delicious, nostalgia-inducing gluten-free treats on the market, and with good reason: they taste absolutely fantastic!

Goodie Girl Crunchy Chaos Cookies

We came home with a package of the Midnight Brownie variety — a dark cocoa, brownie cookie packed with hunks of semi-sweet Belgian chocolate — that really holds its own against a glass of cold milk. Learn more about Goodie Girl gluten free cookies at This Link!

Beanitos Chips

High in fiber and low in sodium, Beanitos Chips and Puffs offer a healthier crunch. In taste-tempting flavors like Hot Chili Lime, White Cheddar and Chipotle BBQ, there is going to be a variety to please every snacker at the party. Visit Beanitos online at Beanitos Dot Com.
