    It’s interesting to get your perspective on these products. Zingerman’s is just a few minutes from where I live (I just had breakfast there this morning), and they do carry most of the things you talked about. I don’t think their creamery has a pacojet, sadly. I also don’t think they carry the Pacari products, although they do carry the other things, I believe. (Except the Sunland chocolate peanut butter). The problem, too, is the pricing. Sigh. This must have been great fun, palate fatigue or no.

    Hey Jessica – hope you’re doing well. I got to go to the Fancy Food Show for the first time this year – and would you believe it – I missed the whole bottom floor – AGH! I think that’s where a lot of the people you list above were :( ah well, there’s always next year :) BTW, did you get a chance to try the small ice pops the oil company Le Tourangelle had made with Hazelnut Oil? They were so good – I had to go back for another one.

      Avanika, the world is full of “better than Nutella”s. :-)

      Jen, I’ve always wanted to go to Zingerman’s. Have been eying their chocolate-cherry bread for some time. The Pacojet is so amazing that I’m surprised a Pacojet creamery doesn’t exist yet. Yes, Pralus and Claudio Corallo are pricey but worth it. You can always request them as a gift…

      Yoko, welcome to the world of Fancy Food! Yeah, the bottom level is mainly U.S. companies. But hey, you met Dorie Greenspan! I saw the hazelnut oil but they ran out of the ice pops when I got there. I heard that Chikalicious Dessert Club has a Pacojet, but their ice cream (while good) is nowhere near the Claudio Corallo.

    I had the pleasure of tasting the creme de noisette with the author and I have to say that it WAS all that. The richness of the flavor as she says makes the product. The infernal bar was incredible as well. I am guilty of encouraging the tastings of as many cheeses as possible and for that I am sorry!

      Niko, what is there to be sorry about? If it weren’t for you, I would have had a sugar coma.

      Eliana, that’s too bad you had to bow out of the show last minute. I believe there’s a restaurant show in the fall. Here’s a list of trade shows in the NY area: http://www.biztradeshows.com/usa/newyork/

    I’m so upset that I didn’t get to go to this show. I had registered months ago but had a family event come up that weekend so I had to cancel. Looking forward to reading more about what you discovered at the show.

    I can’t imagine anything better than nutella, but I’ll take your word for it. I gotta go find some Pralus!

    you’re right about the pacojet. the restaurant i’m working in has one and we use it all the time for our sorbets and ice creams. i reckon if i move to another place without it, i’ll just die. HAHA. it saves a lot of time, and i honestly don’t think you get the same texture with churning the ice cream before hand and then freezing. : )
