2012 Summer Fancy Food Show

fancyfoodshow2012How do we briefly describe aisles and aisles of gourmet foods, all there for 3 days of sampling? Our experience at the massive Summer Fancy Food Show held this week in Washington DC was simply one continuous gala tasting party. We deem the event a “Disneyworld” for foodies, including kosher foodies. As we tirelessly, walked aisle after aisle of this fabulous food show, we were dazzled and delighted with the wide kosher selection. Kosher was almost everywhere! At first glance, or shall we say first tasting, we present a few winners. Many more will follow as we review our extensive list of new kosher discoveries.

strawberry_probiotic_prodYogurt…Our favorite new find for drinkable yogurt was Siggi’s, a high protein yogurt, and Siggi’s Skyr, a spoonable traditional yogurt of Iceland 

Just when we thought we had yogurt covered we discovered the very delicious, Karoun Dairies Mediterranean style yogurt. We tasted the honey flavor, and it was a HONEY!

Then came the frozen treats such as gelato, yogurt and ice creams:

Chozen is an all natural ice cream. We sampled 3 flavors (Well why not!)  Apples and Honey, Ronne’s Rugelach and Matzoh Crunch. This brand is currently distributed primarily in the Northeast, but stay tuned. It can be ordered online. The company owners are a mother-daughter team.

adoniagreekyogurtAnd of course, how could we resist a taste of one of our very favorites, Ciao Bella – and their new introduction Adonia Greek Frozen Yogurt – so refreshing! By the way Greek frozen yogurt  is a creamy new trend!

Yes, we did finally proceed in our tasting to healthful snacks. We found at least 15 kinds of chips in addition to various types of potato chips including chips made of lentils, veggies, pita, beans, pretzels, dried fruits and more. There were gluten free and salt free, baked and fried. We particularly enjoyed our taste of Snikiddy brand snacks. And, if you follow this link, we are providing a Snikiddy coupon.

There was infused everything, including salt and olive oil; Lots of pasta in so many flavors—but we certainly wish more of the Italian pastas were kosher certified! And then, of course the chocolate—in many guises - infused, flavored, ground, bars, chips, cocoa. It was  a “Willy Wonka” chocolate dream. Ask us about the rich, deep flavors of Guylian.

mushroom-kit-2As avid, amateur but adventurous gardeners, we are anxious to try the innovative gold Sofi award winner, the “grow your own mushroom kit” – yes, in your kitchen – from Back to the Roots.

The product choices were infinite – Himalayan salt, fig and ginger jams and jellies, unusual ketchups, cookies, sorbets, olives, soups, salmon jerky, smoked fish delicacies, coffees, candies, and more — much globally sourced, but even more made in the USA!

We enjoyed seeing friends from “our sweet hometown” Georgia company, Savannah Bee and head beekeeper, Ted Dennard. (We think this is one of the world’s best honeys!)  A highlight of the show for us was our chat with one of the top bean counters on the globe…the amazing CEO of the Jelly Belly company, Herm Rowland. He is an extraordinary businessman, and a nice person. More about this chat in future columns. How wonderful to see multiple generations of a family working together. Our kosher sweet tooth is appreciative to have this product available to us! Want to know what’s in the Jelly Belly pipeline?  It’s going to be hot – Tabasco!

We think that the Summer Fancy Food show trends can be summed up as: healthful, low calorie, protein packed, gluten–free, natural and happily kosher! In fact, according to a recent finding by Mintel, a well recognized London–based leading global supplier of consumer, product and media intelligence, kosher is now the #1 claim on new products.*

Do visit KosherEye often in the next weeks and months, so that we can introduce you to some of our favorite new kosher products, brands and finds!

* “It was found out that among the commodities from the beverage and food industry, “Kosher” garnered 27% (5,606 out of 20,455) making it more popular than the most common claim, “all–natural product”. Lagging behind “kosher” and “all–natural products” are “no additives/preservatives” ,"low/no/reduced allergen," and "gluten–free."

Trader Joe's Chocolate Chip Petition

Sign the Petition - KosherEye friend Iris Richman contacted us with the following information:
I just created a petition: Trader Joe's: Keep chocolate chips non-dairy - certified as pareve, because I care about this important issue. Similar to the success when Duncan Hines and Stella D'Oro reversed plans to make previously pareve products dairy, I'm hoping that we can convince Trader Joe's as well.

I'm trying to collect 1000 signatures, and I could really use your help. To read more about what I'm trying to do and to sign my petition, click here: http://www.change.org/petitions/trader-joe-s-keep-chocolate-chips-non-dairy-certified-as-pareve?share_id=aRVKxTYmUKpe=pce

It'll just take a minute! Once you're done, please ask your friends to sign the petition as well. Grassroots movements succeed because people like you are willing to spread the word! Iris KosherEye has signed the petition and we are asking our friends to do the same and share it with their friends. Thank you Iris!

Trader Joe's Chocolate Chips

No longer Dairy Free. The OK Kosher Certification Agency  has announced that Trader Joe's chocolate chips are no longer going to be parve. In our opinion, these are the best parve chocolate chips available to the home baker. Parve chocolate chips are popular with both kosher observant cooks and dairy free households. We suggest you contact Trader Joe's and let them know how you feel. They are usually very  receptive to customer comments.

Aloe in the Kitchen- A Burning Tip!

Do you keep an aloe plant in your kitchen? You should. The Aloe plant has numerous benefits in addition to its common use as a sunburn remedy. Aloe is an easy plant to nurture, very little care is needed. It is a succulent with a natural capacity for water storage. This means it requires minimal attention and is easy to keep healthy.

We keep Aloe “at the ready” in our kitchens. It provides soothing first aid for minor kitchen burns and cuts… those injuries common to “in a rush” cooks and chefs. We simply break off a stem, squeeze, and apply  the liquid gel inside the stem to our burn. Not only is it soothing and moisturizing, but the Aloe seems to speed up the healing process. It is also said to be antibacterial and anti-inflammatory. Its  medicinal properties can be documented as far back as Ancient Egypt and Greece.

The broken stem does not regenerate, but additional stems will be produced regularly. Keep the plant near a sunny window, and water VERY sparingly.

Aloe plants are easily available at nurseries, garden stores and in supermarket plant departments.
