The start of summer is always a scorcher here in the States—and this summer is no different. Bold Palate Foods made a splash with its Summer Fancy Food Show debut, showcasing its line of dressings and sauces made to transform a common meal into a fine culinary experience.
“Many conventional dressings and sauces are loaded with sugar, sodium, and saturated fat,” said company Founder and Chief Executive Officer Kate Mann. “Bold Palate offers a refreshing alternative. Our ingredients include puréed fruits and veggies, organic herbal teas, apple cider vinegar, and lots of herbs and spices. We use no added sugar, no artificial sweeteners, no nuts, and no animal products.”
Bold Palate’s lineup included No Cows on this Ranch, a light, herbaceous version of the classic Ranch dressing; The Beet Goes On, a sweet and smoky dressing and barbecue sauce with a beet base; Hint of Harissa, with zesty ginger and warm spices; and Apple Spice Vinaigrette, with sweet and tangy flavor balanced with a touch of mustard and garlic. New products in development include a vegan Caesar dressing.
According to the release, Mann was a former TV reporter turned culinary blogger and started Bold Palate to fill a need for busy home cooks: dressings and sauces that are packed with delicious flavor and clean, nutritious ingredients.
Mann continued, noting that collaborations with professional chefs and food scientists have been critical to getting Bold Palate products off the ground. Additionally, Mann has teamed with a panel of food industry advisors to help bring her products to market and to manage the unforeseen disruptions caused by the pandemic successfully.
“We are grateful we’ve gotten onto store shelves in New York. We see the Summer Fancy Food Show as a terrific opportunity to connect with buyers and distributors in other parts of the country,” she commented.
Sold on Amazon, on its own online store, and in specialty grocery stores in New York City, the specialty food start-up’s products come in 12 oz glass bottles with a suggested retail price of $8.99 per bottle.
