The Golden Foodie Awards is pleased to announce the addition of Kéan Coffee and Shari's Berries as official sponsors of the 2012 Golden Foodie Awards. Kean Coffee and Shari’s Berries each created truly unique products in honor of the red carpet culinary awards show and foodie season.
Orange County based, family-owned Kéan Coffee has been coined as the "Best Coffeehouse” by both the Los Angeles Times and Orange County Register. Kean has unveiled their new Golden Affogato exclusively available during the Golden Foodie Awards season. The Golden Affogato fuses Lola's local artisan vanilla ice cream and a shot of Kéan's famous espresso then is drizzled with caramel and sprinkled with Guittard chocolate shavings and genuine edible gold flakes. This delectable treat is available at both Kéan Coffee Orange County locations in Tustin and Newport Beach for $4.50 through September 30.
“The entire Kean Coffee team is honored to be caffeinating the Golden Foodie Awards and proud to be the official coffee roaster for the event,” commented Martin and Karen Diedrich on their involvement in the Awards.
Shari's Berries, a luxury dipped berry and dessert company, has unveiled the new gourmet "Golden" Cocktail Berries exclusively for the Golden Foodie Awards. The dipped berry medleys are flavored with hints of Butter Rum, Amaretto, or Champagne, and then decorated with gold swizzles and shimmer sugars. A full dozen of the "Golden" Cocktails Berries is $39.99 and available online at Shari’s Berries website.
"We at Shari’s Berries are thrilled to present our 'Golden' Cocktail Berries in celebration of the Golden Foodie Awards! Whether it be for a heartfelt gift or a delicious indulgence, our decadent and exquisitely decorated berries make for an unforgettable experience,” commented the Shari’s Berries team.
The Golden Foodie Awards season launched in August with the Golden Dine Out which encourages the foodie community to experience restaurants and cuisine of various genres all over Orange County and vote for their favorite foods and chefs online at Goldenfoodieawards.com. The season will culminate on September 30 with a red carpet Awards show at the Fairmont Newport Beach honoring the absolute best in culinary excellence.
