A Taste of What's New - Day 2


This week The Food Channel is covering the Fancy Food Show in New York City, an event that attracts thousands of specialty food retailers, plus chefs, restaurateurs, supermarket buyers, deli owners, gift store buyers, caterers. Here’s a quick look at the goings-on of Day 2.

Take a walk with us down the foodie aisles of the Javits Center.

The Iced Matcha Tea (green tea) was one of the more refreshing drinks we sampled, but attendees had their choice of organic cherry juice or vanilla soy milk if they preferred. Yes, we tried them all!
