I love technology.
And I love when it can teach me a thing or two about grilling (which is my weakest link when it comes to cooking…)
So, please join me tomorrow (April 5) at NOON CST for a 30 minute FREE virtual cooking class called Firing Up The Grill.
What: Firing Up the Grill: New Recipes, Flavors and Ingredients to Kick-Start BBQ Season. The class is part of the Cooking Connections series on The Motherhood. You can check out great easy grilling recipes ahead of time on recipe website Ready Set Eat.
Where: The chat will take place on TheMotherhood – click the link and it will take you to the virtual class.
About the class: Join celebrity chef George Duran, via live video feed from his own backyard, as he shares top grilling techniques and flavor twists on old favorites.
And there is a Giveaway for (2) summer grilling gift baskets.
