Summer Fancy Food Show 2016 Part 4

I am really sorry but we are still at the Fancy Food Show, Day 4. How gorgeous are these chocolates? I unfortunately forgot to get the name, but I thought they were just so lovely for gift giving! They remind me of little works of art. 
Have you ever enjoyed Gelato? It is like nothing you have ever tasted. So creamy, and less calories than ice cream. These flavors just about made my head spin! 
Authentic Parmigiano-Reggiano is the only kind. Please do not, I repeat, do not use the one in that green can. It isn't real cheese, I am not even sure what it is exactly. 
A wonderful chunk of blue cheese, another of my Mom's faves. It doesn't get any better than this. 
I just loved this tote from Il Caffe' in Rome, Italy. How cool it has been around since 1938? Good things last forever, don't they? 
This lovely Italian gentleman sliced me some Prosciutto and I must say, all that we tried were amazing. Considering they all come direct from Italy, you cannot go wrong. Molto bene (very good, in Italian) 

This is just so drool worthy! 
Lovely packaged salame which I think packaging is so important. It really draws me to buying something if the packaging is done well. 
Italian heaven 
This is the Liuzzi Cheese booth and it was pure amazing. They carry some of my most favorite Italian foods - ricotta, fresh mozzarella cheese- 
This is ricotta with fruit and a drizzle of honey. I actually used to give this to my Mom after she got sick, it was easy for her to eat and so tasty. She hated when we ran out of it, I was so glad she was able to enjoy such an amazing flavor combo. You can use any type of fruit you like. 

The nicest part of these folks was when the lady heard the name of my blog, she made me these wonderful cannoli chips to enjoy! Their ricotta was just to die for, so creamy and smooth, perfect for cannoli filling. Life is oh so good!! 
Okay so this is just a smart idea - Parmigiano Cheese flakes! Franco Boni also sells the cheese in cubes and shredded without the rind. I am so glad there are so many smart people in the world! It is so cool seeing all these amazing products available for purchase.
