The Sofi Awards were held at the Fancy Food Show last night at the Javits center in a ceremony hosted by Ming Tsai noted chef (and first celebrity chef crush of yours truly). And I'm excited that some of Blondie and my favorites from the show were among the big winners...
The "Baked Goods, Baking Ingredient or Cereal" Sofi went to Mari's New York Caramel Sea Salt Brownie. Represent NYC! Mari makes a mean brownie and the Caramel Sea Salt ones are especially delicious.
The "Cheese or Dairy Product" Sofi was awarded to Cypress Grove's Chevre Truffle Tremor. This cheese is simply blissful. Melt in your mouth truffle perfection. Every cheese from Cypress Grove is delicious, but Truffle Tremor is "do you think they'll notice I've been standing here eating their cheese for half an hour" delicious.
The "Classic" Sofi went to Sarabeth's Kitchen Blood Orange Marmalade. I'll always be grateful to Sarabeth's for introducing me to the wonders wonders of canning. In college I fell in love with their jams and they inspired me to make my own.
1,997 entries across all 33 categories. 128 Silver Finalists and 550 buyers casting ballots. Click for a full list of 2009 Sofi Gold Winners and Silver Finalists. Congratulations to all winners and finalists!
