The Fancy Food Show is a highly beloved event that takes place in the Javits Center in New York each year in late June to early July and anyone interested in the food industry and buy a ticket and attend. Visitors get their money's worth whether they are there on business or just want to sample the world's great foods--some never before seen or tasted in the US. Many vendors come to the Javits in the hopes of getting a distributor so the Fancy Food Show is one of the best ways to try new things or even try to network to work for that company in the US and help take them to the next level.
I have my favorite vendors at the Fancy Food Show each year. My favorite "savory" vendor is Rao's Specialty Foods based out of New York City because I not only fell in love with their legendary eatery at East 116th Street and Pleasant Avenue about 20 years ago (where it's next to impossible to get a table due to the regulars having reserved tables every night and its small size) but because I am grateful to be able to take one of their homemade sauces home from the supermarket each week for $10. I tried their Roast Eggplant sauce for the first time at the Fancy Food Show this past Sunday but was equally pleased with the new sauce they were launching at the show--Four Cheeses!
