Sukhi’s Gourmet samosas No. 1!

The East Bay Express pointed out that Hayward-based Sukhi’s Gourmet Indian Foods took top honors in the National Association for the Specialty Food Trade’s annual sofi awards. Sukhi’s samosas with chutney got first place in the “outstanding frozen savory” category, and also got a second place honor “outstanding diet and lifestyle product” for the Lean Fare Chicken Tikka Masala.

For those not in the know, sofi stands for “specialty outstanding food innovation.” The awards go to products you’ll find on shelves, fridges or freezers at retail stores rather than restaurants.

Now, where to get some of those fine Hayward delectables? Unfortunately, Sukhi’s store finder doesn’t find a samosa source closer than Oakland, and neither product is in their online catalog.

But congratulations to Sukhi, regardless! A very impressive national showing.
