Online, October 19, 2017 (Newswire.com) - New York City, NY, Oct. 19, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) --
Top Chefs at the NYCWFF were greeted backstage at the GBK gifting lounge with handmade Giovanni Rana fresh-filled pasta creations including Butternut Squash Ravioli with Brown Butter and Sage, Mini Tortellini with Cacio Pepe and Spinach and Ricotta Ravioli with Sweet Potato Puree. The Giovanni Rana team was excited to introduce the two new additions to their pasta portfolio, Portobello Mushroom Sauce and Mini Tortellini. After pasta, Calif’flour Foods impressed the judges with their cauliflower pizza crust, and with only 180 calories in the entire crust, they offer a healthy option for pizza lovers everywhere.
Felix Jams brought a Sweden specialty to the chefs with their Lingonberry Jams, which has been recommended on Dr. Oz TV Show as a super fruit, loaded with antioxidants. L’Arte del Gelato satisfied the sweet-toothed chefs, and gave $100 gift card so they could enjoy their Clean Label (no artificial flavors, colors or preservatives, no artificial sweeteners, no GMO ingredients, and no artificial hormones) Gelato for dessert long after the food festival.
Sertodo Copper wowed the chefs with hand-dented copper cups with a diamond-engraved NYCWFF logo and “lit up” the lounge with their shiny copper flasks in four different shapes and sizes.
Chef’s moved on from being wined and dined, to updating their kitchens with the newest and most innovative products on the market. Warther Cutlery was expanding the chef’s knife collections, gifting a 7-inch French Chef Knife complete with stainless steel bolters and nameplate, accompanied with a custom metal knife sheath. John Boos, a staple in most chef’s kitchens, known for their quality and consistency over the decades, gifted talent with customized NYCWFF cutting boards with their names engraved on them. Kleb Design was presenting their new-to-the-market titanium hand graters from New Zealand, and blew chefs away with their design that allows you to grate cheese right onto food, with little effort or mess.
Along with kitchen upgrades the culinary experts got treated to a Hifiman earbuds and portable music player that holds up to 8,000 songs, with a battery life of up to 15 hours, as well as an automatic pet feeder from Petnet that helps manage your pet’s health by recommending the right portions based on age, weight and lifestyle, all done from an app on your phone. Fortune and Frame amazed the chefs with the ingenuity behind their Fortune Cookie shaped lockets, designed to hold fortunes that mean the most to you. Chefs also had 4th & Heart Ghee Butter, Nalgene water bottles, and Five Star Access cards from American Airlines in their gift bags.
To help the chefs unwind after their busy week, Visit the Santa Ynez Valley gave two night escapes at a luxury property, including horseback riding, spa treatments, golf, and VIP wine tasting at Sunstone Winery. If a tropical atmosphere was more of what the chefs had in mind, Caribbean Living Magazine and Palace Resorts had them covered, offering a 3-night, 4-day all-inclusive stay at Moon Palace Resort in Jamaica.
