Nancy's Candy Co. - A Gourmet Delight at San Francisco Fancy Food Show

You’ve heard of the diamond’s four c’s? Color, cut,  clarity and carat are all characteristics that are important to a diamond. Well, I’ve discovered the three c’s and a g at the San Francisco Fancy Food Show. Chocolate, cheese, caramel and granola are important to the quality of my life.

In its 35th year, the Winter Fancy Food Show offers specialty food retailers a peek and a taste into what’s new and what’s next in the ever competitive gourmet food world. I decided to approach this year’s show, January 17-19, 2010, with a look at the regional connection we have with our foods.

While the show isn’t open to the general public, I’ve put together a short video of my three c’s; chocolate, cheese and caramel, with a granola product from Jackson Hole thrown into the mix because I’m headed to Wyoming this year.
