Yep, I’m back in LA, courtesy of Frigidaire for another cooking event! See, I do cook; you just have to get me out of my own kitchen first. I’m too much in the short-order cook mentality and get-the-kids-out-the-door frenzy at home.
(And I’m so sorry you’re in Hungary, dear. You’ve never actually seen me do this, have you?)
I’m here to:
…join actress Jennifer Garner and James’ Beard Award Winning Chef, Suzanne Goin for an intimate round table discussion to talk all things holiday… sharing secrets on holiday recipes and traditions to the way you settle the chaos of this time of year… This special event will help support Frigidaire’s commitment to donate $500,000 to Save the Children’s US Programs.
I’ll post pics and recipes when I get back—remember the Kids Cooking Academy? They were so fired up that they actually made awesome food with knives and bowls and mixing spoons and piping bags, and we still have the recipes in case they ever venture past the fridge to that special spot we call “the stove.”
I’m alone this time—the kids came to the Academy and to the Stain Games where they ran drills with Jennifer and were coached in fielding, pitching, and batting practice. It was a pretty awesome day, so active and fun. But they aren’t yet ready for Ye Olde Turkey Dinner Prep and Anxiety Over Cooking Time Ritual. Unfortunately. ‘Cause I’m looking forward to sharing some of the stress.
OK, off to put on my…ivory slacks. Brilliant. For cooking. WHEN WILL I LEARN?
Disclosure: My participation in Frigidaire’s Talk Turkey event was sponsored by Frigidaire who provided me with travel arrangements to and from Los Angeles to participate. I was not paid at all; I go because I support what they are doing with Save the Children.
