The halls of Olympia were filled with visitors last week when the doors opened for the Speciality and Fine Food Fair 2015. Now a well-established annual event in the food lovers’ calendar, over 800 artisan food and drink exhibitors showcased products, with numerous food innovations introduced for the first time. These include a new range of ready-to-finish, restaurant-quality risottos from Morso Foods, ready in only seven minutes. Gluten-free, there are three flavours: risotto with mushrooms, with fresh Portobello mushrooms, garlic, rosemary and red wine; risotto with pancetta and fennel, with fresh fennel, fennel seeds and rosemary; and risotto with prawns and leeks, with tiger prawns, a touch of chilli and tarragon. Also new is a product range from Pack’d. Sweet Virtues health conscious food comes in flavours such as maqui berry, yerba maté and lemon, and white tea and peppermint. Green Lady introduced what the company calls “the first ever sparkling tea beverage in the UK – a delicious, en vogue non-alcoholic drink . . . a sparkling infusion of green tea, carob fruit, nutmeg and a splash of rose oil.” My particular favourite comes from a new company, The Art of Curry where the King Korma, Royal Dopiaza, Queen Bhuna and Raging Raja traditional Moghul and Nawabi Indian cooking sauces were unleashed onto eager Olympia visitors. Finally, look out for a new range of cocktails from Köld Cocktails packaged in a single-serve pouch for a perfectly refreshing cocktail every time. So if you fancy a frozen cosmopolitan, frozen mojito or frozen lychee martini, you know where to get one!
