I have decided to start a special series called “Fancy Food Show Finds” featuring some of the brands I discovered and/or already loved, who were exhibiting, with recipes for you to prepare. First up, Lotus Foods. I discovered Lotus Foods about 18-years ago at Whole Foods and it has been my favorite rice ever since.

As I strolled through the Whole Foods aisles figuring out what best to make for the New Year’s Eve and New Year’s meal, I stumbled across an incredible deal on lobster tails for just $5.99 and a turkey leg for a mere .82!

I want to pass my newfound knowledge onto you, dear TGATP readers, lest you ruin your whole year by consuming the wrong foods!
