in Foodservice and Hospitality Options at NRA Show 2011
Bridgewater, Conn. - May 18, 2011 — First-time exhibitor The Gracious Gourmet (Booth 1280W) introduces 11 of its award-winning spreads and tapenades in 76-oz. foodservice sizes at the NRA Show, as well as six products in 4-oz. glass jars for gift baskets and hospitality amenities.
The Gracious Gourmet enlivens menus with a wide variety of recipe options for restaurateurs, chefs, cafes, caterers, event planners and wine bars using its all-natural spreads and tapenades. These affordable and time-saving accompaniments can be used for cheese plates, roasted meats, salad dressings and more.
Successful restaurants and foodservice providers use these spreads, tapenades and chutneys for paninis, wraps, flatbreads, pizzas and dressings. Developed with healthy eating in mind, The Gracious Gourmet minimizes the use of sugar, salt and oil to deliver all-natural products with impressive flavor. Because today’s diners demand sophisticated tastes for even casual meals, The Gracious Gourmet created nearly 100 recipes suited for foodservice to provide inspiration (located at
The 76-oz. foodservice containers come in 11 flavors:

  • Fig Almond Spread
  • Spiced Sour Cherry Spread
  • Rosemary Pear Spread
  • Balsamic Four Onion Spread
  • Peach Apricot Spread
  • Portobello Mushroom Tapenade
  • Roasted Vegetable Tapenade
  • Chile Red Pepper Tapenade
  • Artichoke Parmesan Tapenade
  • Garden Tomato Pesto
  • Dried Fruit Chutney
Perfect for retailers, gift basket fabricators, event planners and hospitality professionals, the mini glass jars feature the same beautifully designed art found on the standard size labels. Many hotels offer 4-oz. minis as in-room amenities and VIP gifts. Each jar is ideal to accompany cheese plates in the café or on a room service menu, while standard-size jars can be cross-merchandised in a retail area. In upscale gift baskets, the products perfectly pair with cheese, wine, chocolates, crackers and other gourmet treats. Brides also request the mini sizes as reception favors or hotel-room gifts for guests.
The 4-oz. hospitality jars come in six flavors: Spiced Sour Cherry Spread; Balsamic Four Onion Spread; Chile Red Pepper Tapenade; Fennel Blood Orange Tapenade; Artichoke Parmesan Tapenade; and Fig Almond Spread.
