5 seafood stars at the Fancy Food Show
The Winter Fancy Food Show kicked off 2019 with a resounding buzz, featuring more than 2,400 exhibitors from over 50 countries showcasing all manner of products from cheese and chocolate, to ramen and jerky, to functional foods seemingly “free” from everything except flavor.
Featuring country pavilions such as the United Kingdom, Japan, France, Italy, the Philippines, Spain, Greece, Mexico, Canada, and Brazil, it was guaranteed that seafood would have a presence in some form or another, and this year didn’t disappoint. From pioneering producers presenting unique products or innovations in their industry, to the raw natural simplicity of products such as smoked salmon and caviar, Fancy Food wasn't short on interesting seafood items.
In the Japanese Pavilion, attendees discovered the luscious and traditional tsukuda-ni (fish boiled in soy sauce), and close-by, in the U.K. showcase, smoked and fresh Scottish salmon held pride of place next to the British Dairy Board. Amongst the many American offerings were hand-shucked clams available fresh, frozen, or canned, and caviar in all manner of flavors.
