Eating and Cooking at the Taste of Chicago!

| July 1, 2011 | 2 Comments

The Taste of Chicago is in full force and yesterday I had the opportunity  to join in on the fun and cook for the crowd.

Under the Dominick’s Cooking Corner demo tent, a company dedicated to healthy living for families called Zisboombah held a Fourth of July BBQ makeover so you can enjoy the holiday food avoiding the unnecessary guilt on eating the wrong stuff.

Lucky for me, I was the guest sidekick to Chef Patrick Williams who also introduced his very own specialty, Grandpa Boo’s BBQ Sauce. And for the crowd, he created a healthier sauce using Agave Syrup for sweetness. We also made some bean and fruit salad that I can’t wait to try at home. Zisboombah will be posting those recipes on their website.

You should definitely hit the Cooking Corner this Saturday because Zisboombah is hosting an Iron Chef-style Pick Chow! Across America cook-off at 1:30 PM. Another Chicago Chef, Ryan Hutmacher of The Centered Chef will be cooking for the toughest culinary critics around: Kids!
