Corporate culinary team building

A group of 36 enthusiastic employees, who were divided into teams, together produced a delicious and partiotic-themed dinner and then sat down to enjoy the 'fruits of their labor'.

Here's what some of the participants had to say:

What a phenominal way to gather and bond! Susan D.

This was a terrific event. It was fun working together with people that I don't necessarily interact with on a daily basis. Great fun and great food! Ann Marie G.

Great informal and stressless team building activity that allows employees to work together. Mikki D.

Garlic info

When I teach, one of the most frequently asked questions is in regards to garlic. People want to know if they can substitute chopped garlic that can be purchased in jars, for fresh garlic. In my estimation, there is absolutely no comparison between the two. Fresh garlic tastes and smells infinitely better. I always use fresh garlic and either chop it with a sharp knife, in a food processor, or with a garlic press.

Garlic should be stored at room temperature, either in a wire or wicker basket, away from direct sunlight.
