After my day at the Fancy Food show last week, I hopped on over to an exclusive soiree known as Food Fete. Swarming with press and colleagues, it was table after table of luscious goodies, many of them appropriate for our community. Grapes, figs, gluten-free and lactose-free cheeses, gluten-free vanilla and gluten-free Boar’s Head were all in attendance.
Hopefully I’ll have a chance to test drive some of these products soon. In the meantime, here are some pictures.
A view of the Food Fete before the madness began:

The California Table Grape Commission (see smiley grape guy):
GF Blue Cheese from Point Reyes Farmstead Cheese (so artisnal):
Vodka made from milk from Vermont Spirits (also maple, interesting and GF):
