The 6 Best Things We Ate at the 2018 Winter Fancy Food Show

Want to elevate your cheese board or add serious punch to roasted meats or desserts? Look for the line of condiments from Le Bon Magot (French for “the hidden treasure”). They combine exceptional ingredients in creative ways. My favorite was the Lemon-Sultana Marmalada with Caraway and Saffron. The saffron lends an earthy flavor and gives the spread a lovely golden color. The base of lemon and sultana (a type of seedless grape) hit the perfect balance of fruity and sweet. I could eat this straight from the jar, but I recommend serving it alongside creamy goat cheese or a firm sheep’s milk gouda. —Kate Shannon
