The Gracious Gourmet to Reveal 3 New Flavors at Summer Fancy Food Show #SFFS14

The Gracious Gourmet’s award-winning line of spreads, chutneys and pestos now includes a new fruit spread, Date Apricot Spread, and a new line of products called The Gracious Gourmet Essentials.

The Essentials line — which boasts quality and consistency for ingredients cooks often need in recipes — launches with two must-have products: Sautéed Mixed Mushrooms and Sweet Caramelized Onions. These essentials, which taste just prepared, save home cooks and chefs the time of shopping for ingredients, prepping them and cooking them to get  rich flavors before adding to a final dish. Taste them at the Summer Fancy Food Show in NYC at booth #438.

Date Apricot Spread is packed with dates combined with apricots, spices and orange juice. It is great paired with cheeses like ricotta, fresh goat, brie and cheddar and is delicious served with chicken, duck or turkey and mixed into basmati rice. Also perfect for yogurt parfaits or as a topper for vanilla or caramel ice creams.

 

•  Sautéed Mixed Mushrooms contains white, crimini and shiitake mushrooms cooked with onions in olive oil and finished with a dash of lemon juice. It provides “essential” rich mushroom flavor to a variety of dishes, including risottos, pasta dishes, soups, omelets and savory pancakes.

Sweet Caramelized Onions includes the equivalent of 1 pound of raw sweet onions in every 7-ounce container! The fresh onions are cooked in olive oil with a hint of brown sugar to boost the onions’ natural sweetness — the taste is so good you can eat them straight from the jar. Use them to top all kinds of meat and fish as well as in salad dressings, soups, pasta and rice dishes.

“We are extremely excited to launch our new organic product line,” said Jim Gordon, President and CEO of Robert Rothschild Farm. “During our extensive research, we determined that great-tasting organic sauces are challenging to find. Consumers are seeking healthy choices, and we felt compelled to create outstanding sauces with on-trend flavors. Our sauces are an easy way to add distinct flavor to organic proteins or vegetables.”

The new organic sauces include the following delicious flavors:

Blueberry Balsamic Sauce: Sweet blueberries are complemented by balsamic vinegar with flavorful notes from shallots, basil and black pepper to create this tangy and sweet organic Blueberry Balsamic Sauce.

Citrus Chardonnay Sauce: The organic Citrus Chardonnay Sauce pairs fennel with the sweetness of honey, bursts of flavor from oranges and Chardonnay to create this creamy sauce.

Pineapple Habanero BBQ Sauce: The popular Roasted Pineapple & Habanero Dip inspired the organic Pineapple Habanero BBQ Sauce. Sweet pineapples, honey, spicy habanero peppers and ginger make this sweet and spicy BBQ Sauce.

Sriracha Teriyaki Sauce: Classic teriyaki sauce with Sriracha and a hint of orange are blended to create this organic Sriracha Teriyaki Sauce.

Whiskey Pepper Cream Sauce: The organic Whiskey Pepper Cream Sauce has a medley of flavors from Dijon mustard, rich cream, garlic, black pepper, accented by a touch of whiskey and white miso to create a creamy sauce with a kick of heat.

White Wine Creole Sauce: The organic White Wine Creole Sauce is started with a spicy tomato base, adding a splash of white wine, and the classic trinity of celery, bell peppers, and onions to create this Southern-inspired sauce.

Robert Rothschild Farm is also reintroducing its Raspberry Thunder Sauce. It is back by popular demand. “Our consumers continually asked if we could make the Raspberry Thunder Sauce,” said Jim Gordon. “We listened to our consumers and are relaunching the spicy hot sauce with a new look but the same great taste.”

Musashi Foods Introduces First Green Sriracha and Authentic Japanese Spicy Mayo in United States

Sriracha has lived in the spicy condiment spotlight for the past few years making a flavored appearance in everything from popcorn to potato chips and every possible application in between. Musashi Foods has broken the mold of traditional red sriracha with the launch of its Midori Sriracha made from green serrano peppers, turning the heat up on this popular hot sauce.

Additionally this New York-based specialty food company has launched an authentic Japanese Spicy Mayo, the only of its kind on the market today. Both the Midori Sriracha ($4.99) and Japanese Spicy Mayo ($5.49) are available now for purchase at Amazon.com and musashifoods.com.  Also, these unique and all natural products will be on store shelves throughout New York and beyond in the weeks and months to come.

“I saw a need for an authentic Japanese Spicy Mayo in the marketplace and spent the  past year perfecting the recipe and developing the necessary infrastructure to bring this product to a mass market,” said Musashi Foods Founder and President Gideon Sarraf.

Sarraf is an accomplished entrepreneur with a passion for hot and spicy food. In fact, Sarraf has long made his own sriracha sauce at home, perfecting the heat level to satisfy his advanced palate. After realizing how popular truly authentic Japanese Spicy Mayo is, Sarraf set out to bring this product to market a little over a year ago. During the process and research he also spotted a need for a green sriracha with a different flavor profile than the traditional red sriracha on store shelves today.

“The response to these products has been wholly positive, and we hope to bring it to supermarkets across the country. People have been actively searching for these products; now they finally have a place to buy them,” he said.

Musashi Foods will be at the Summer Fancy Food Show in a booth located in the “New Brands on the Shelf” Pavilion, located on Level 1, behind the 3400 aisle.

Irwindale Lays Down Arms Against Sriracha Maker

The city of Irwindale, Calif. has apparently made peace with the manufacturer of Huy Fong Foods Sriracha Sauce and withdrawn its nuisance complaint and lawsuit after a meeting with the company’s owner and representatives of the state’s economic development office. The Associated Press reports that Huy Fong Foods Owner David Tran has promised to take action to improve the plant’s air filtration system if the offensive odors that gave rise to complaints from local residents recur during next year’s production season. Texas had sent a delegation of lawmakers to California to let Tran know that if Irwindale wasn’t happy about Huy Fong Foods’ presence in their city, Texas would be happy to accommodate the plant.
