BLUEBERRY PRETZELS! BROCCOLI CHIPS! BUTTERSCOTCH PEANUT BUTTER! These are only some of the amazing items we’ve seen at the 40th Winter Fancy Food Show!!!

We are having a GREAT TIME here at San Francisco’s Moscone Center! This is the largest Winter Fancy Food Show ever assembled.

There are hundreds of chefs, bakers and food entrepreneurs from around the world, covering 215,000 square feet of exhibition space! Cheeses, sauces, chocolates, jellies, candies, gelatos, pastas, taffies, olives, edamames, salamis, pho and fruity poppers fill the huge hall, end to end.

So many vendors, so little time!!

Of course, we’re not only here to look and eat. We’re also manning our own booth, in association with Sweetworks. And we’ve been crazy busy meeting our fantastic fans, like Sylvia Dandrea (above). Sylvia owns a bakery in Deming, New Mexico—and she was so nice to say that our books have inspired her. Fans like Sylvia inspire US too!

We’re also busy coming up with new cake and cupcake concoctions right on the spot. (We are definitely multi-tasking the day away!) Each hour our bakery case grows and grows. Here’s how it looked yesterday at about 3 PM Pacific Time (with lots more planned for today).


In our next blog entry, we’ll take a CLOSER LOOK AT THE NEW PROJECTS we’ve been concocting at the show. Meanwhile, we’d better get back to work. We’ve got a lot more meeting and greeting (and EATING) to do.
