Among the semi-celebrity sightings we had at the Fancy Food Show this week in S.F. were Ace of Cakes dude Duff Goldman, who was there hawking his new line of cake decorating products; Real Housewives of New Jersey favorite son, Albie Manzo, who was hawking this BLK water stuff that we don’t understand; and Iron Chef Cat Cora, who was just making an appearance and didn’t appear to be hawking anything, but she does have a Cat Cora’s ‘Cue opening at SFO soon.
The biggest over-arching trend we saw? Gluten-free. It was everywhere. And for the record, there was some overlap between the Good Food Awards honorees and the Fancy Food exhibitors, because they gotta sell their stuff somehow.
