Gordon Edgar on the Fancy Food Show: A struggle in the mouth
Gordon Edgar recaps the wonders of the newest Fancy Food Show in San Francisco. Sounds like a hoot and a holler...or maybe just another day in the Fancy Food filled life of Gordon Edgar:
Oh, Fancy Food Show… Always pretty much the same and yet always a must-attend event.
Back in Ye Olde Dayes, when we were trying to build a cheese department, we roamed your aisles looking for cheese to stock our shelves. I’m still getting “VISIT OUR BOOTH!” mailings from people whose product I tasted once over a decade ago and never brought into the store. Back then a lot of folks wouldn’t even talk to us because we looked too weird or they’d never heard of our store. Now, I seldom visit a booth where I don’t already have an appointment.
That’s probably better for my stomach. No more of the freestyle grazing that means coffee on top of salsa on top of prosciutto on top of chocolate on top of “gourmet” pigs in “artisan” blankets…
