I have been interested in going to this event for years. The National Association of the Specialty Food Trade’s Fancy Food Show will be in New York City at the Javits Center, From June 27-29. 180,000 products will be featured, including “confections, cheese, coffee, snacks, spices, ethnic, natural, organic and more.” There will be 2500 exhibitors from 81 different countries. And I imagine a sample or two…
Typically the show is in San Francisco in the winter, and NYC in the Summer. However the upcoming schedule looks like the next two summers the show will be in Washington DC instead. So New York, get your fancy on while you can!
Tickets are $35 through 5/21, and $60 thereafter. However, clicking on the link below will allow you to get a ticket for $25! See you there.
The Summer Fancy Food Show, June 27-29, in NYC is North America’s largest specialty food trade event and attracts 2,400 exhibitors showcasing over 180,000 specialty foods and beverages. Take advantage of this invitation and I hope to see you there!

You may have seen the photos. Long elegant, serpentine tables, winding through idyllic rural farm landscapes. Plus gorgeous, vibrant local food, prepared by a super star chef. Yes, it is Outstanding in the Field, and yes, the tickets go on sale today.
Outstanding in the Field is an 11 year old organization, founded by chef and artist Jim Denevan, that arranges elegant communal food events in beautiful farm environments around the county. Each dinner features a highly regarded chef from the area, and serves food grown or raised a few feet from where you are sitting. Though not inexpensive at $200 a pop, the ticket price includes several hours of a many course meal and wine, a farm tour, a brilliant chef, supporting the local farm and farmer, and probably the most spectacular dining room I’ll ever eat in.
Here is a short piece CBS Sunday Morning did on Jim a couple of years back.
Since learning of OITF a couple of years ago, I have had conflicts each year, and finally this season will have a chance to experience it myself. So exciting to see on the schedule a dinner with my most favorite chef Bill Telepan, that is also a benefit for my beloved Wellness in the Schools, and one almost in my backyard in rural Sullivan County, cooked by Jim Lahey of the Sullivan Street Bakery and no-knead bread fame. Lovely choices.
