The competition was fierce – and fun – at the Front Burner Foodservice Pitch Competition at the Specialty Food Association’s (SFA) 43rd Winter Fancy Food Show. When the scores were all tallied, Brooklyn Delhi and its Tomato Achaar won. The event was hosted on January 22 by the SFA’s Foodservice Council.
Tomato Achaar is a condiment made with locally-grown tomatoes, tamarind, a mix of Indian spices, red chili powder, unrefined cane sugar and sesame oil. It has a savory, spicy and tangy flavor. Traditionally, achaar is eaten with rice, curry, dal and yogurt, but it can be topped with most anything.
The Front Burner Foodservice Pitch Competition judges tasted each product, and after hearing the pitches, assigned scores for innovation, quality, and chef-appeal for foodservice.
