Every year I attend the New York Fancy Food Show held at the Jacob Javits Convention Center, and I must say that every time has been a tremendous experience. I went on Monday and Tuesday of June 27th and 28th and it was a major turn out. Hundreds of food booths are available for you to stop by and try their samples, and allowing you to chat and connect with them as well. Many wholesalers, retailers, and distributors all regarding the food industry come in for this show every year to make connections. There is such a huge range regarding the food that is offered to you, which is nice because you get a little taste of everything from all over the world!
Il Gelataio G7 is a gelato brand that is made in Italy and is the most delicious gelato I have ever tasted in my life. It was unreal! The company had so many different flavors to choose from to try, but I went for the Hazelnut, my all time favorite flavor. This gelato is special because of the handmade filling procedure, filling ever tub with gelato manually. They also make sure to use the best Italian ingredients and fresh Italian milk when making the amazing gelato flavors, also including everything is gluten free (yay!). My taste buds were going crazy because of how tasty this gelato was. I asked for three samples every time I was at the booth and went back for more samples the second day I was at the food show as well. I hunted down this booth because I couldn’t leave without having a taste before the show was over. The workers probably were sick of me always asking to try all the flavors. I didn’t care, that’s why they are here. Il Gelataio G7 is sold worldwide, but you can find the gelato in the United States located in California, Texas, Missouri, and Michigan.
Sigdal Bakeri is a Norwegian family owned bakery that started their crispbread production in 2010. Crispbread, aka, some of the best tasting all natural wholegrain crackers I’ve ever eaten, comes in ten different flavors, all which are appetizing! Each cracker flavor has a unique taste that contains different seeds and kernels. It’s been hard for me to find a healthy, good tasting, and nutritious cracker all in one. Talk about the perfect cracker! This was the first booth I went to at the show and it was amazing! If you pair these crisps with avocado or hummus it is the ultimate snack for the day. These crackers are sold in the Norwegian, Scandinavia, and several European markets. You can find these crispbread crackers sold online at the VeganSupply.ca or their website sigdalbakeri.com that is available to the United States. They also are exported here in New York City.
I recommend attending the food show next summer to anyone and everyone! Come with a very empty stomach because you will be having your breakfast, lunch, and dinner all at this event! Let me tell you, it does not disappoint!
