Hi everyone! I had a GREAT day at the Fancy Food Show at the Javit’s Center today with my eating companion, Julie Rosenberg. We have indulged in the trade show for the last 15 years and I am happy to report that we have not lost our stamina-6 straight hours of walking and sampling delctable new products.Check out our photos on facebook
New trends? EVERYTHING is gluten free and vegan! It is astounding how our culinary world is getting healthier and healthier. So glad to see it happening before my eyes.
Try this very large salad for your upcoming parties that is both gluten free and vegan.
