Rob, James and Cat, of the TCHO Sales Team, setting up our booth in NYC!
North America’s largest food and beverage show, the Summer Fancy Food Show, took place in New York last weekend, and the TCHO Sales Team and our chief chocolate maker, Brad Kintzer, took the Big Apple by storm! Over 2,000 exhibitors gathered to showcase their goods — from chocolate to cheese, wine to pickled goods … and a complete lineup of TCHO Products! From the founding four PureNotes™ single origin dark chocolates to our first inclusion bar Mokaccino, a newly completed TCHOPro baking line with cocoa powder and awe-inspiring 84% drops, and the newly released flavored drinking chocolates!
But the real show stealer had to be the debut of TCHO’s new obsession — TCHOPairings! These are pairings of chocolate and ingredients, in a bar, unlike anything you’ve ever tasted before. More to come on these soon (we promise!), but for now, let’s just say we scoured the entire globe in search of the perfect ingredients to pair with custom-formulated TCHO Chocolate. Two of our new inclusion bars feature astronaut ice cream made with Gelateria Naia flavors, and with the TCHO booth right across from Gelateria Naia at the show, there was a fun sense of camaraderie amongst Bay Area food innovators on aisle 4500!
We loved the chance to see old and new friends at the show as well — Chef Nathan Lyon, and Bay Area dessert company, Just Desserts, even whipped up a flourless TCHO chocolate torte with a chocolate buttercream ganache using our 70% Ghanian chocolate. It was exquisite, and not to mention the perfect sugar rush in the midst of all things Fancy Food Show.
With so many passionate “foodies” under one roof, the TCHO team was constantly occupied — manning the TCHO booth, mingling with friends from near and far, and, of course, sampling all that was being showcased! Before we knew it, it was time to pack things up, say goodbye to our industry friends, and depart back to San Francisco. With such an exciting response to the new TCHO products set to be making their debut this Fall, we’re already looking forward to what’s next!
