Media alert! Set your DVR's or call in sick to work tomorrow morning. Poppa's making an appearance on CBS Better Mornings. I'll be on at 9:40 and talking about healthy summer eating. The whole city (or at least those who watch CBS Better Mornings) will learn the secrets of Kale Salad. I'll be the Jamie Oliver of Atlanta. It's a four minute segment, so you won't have to miss the whole day of work (unless you want to) but I'm sure it'll be fun. Maybe this will be my long-awaited return to television. Although, has anyone really waited a long time for me to return to TV? I doubt it.
I served up lots of dinner last night at a very busy restaurant. I think the time change and the gorgeous weather is bringing out the peeps. At least it's bringing out my MetroFreshuals.
And lastly - because I'm all in the cooking demo mode a la Jamie Oliver, I've decided to do a cooking class this month. It'll be Sunday evening the 30th in the MetroFresh Kitchen! Hopefully this will be the first of a series that Rockstar and I are going to be doing. I'll be highlighting the Spring Table. Here's the menu -
- Peppery Flank Steak with Mint Chimichuri
- Red Quinoa Salad with Fresh Raw Corn, Grape Tomatoes, Avocado – Lime/Cilantro Dressing
- Clementine Orange and Asparagus Salad with Shaved Fennel
- Baby Arugula Salad with Roasted Wild Mushrooms, Crispy Leeks and Shaved Parmesan – MetroFresh House Basil Vinaigrette
- Nana’s Fresh Strawberry Pie
We can take up to 20 people. Class starts at 6pm and costs $55/person. It's a fine night that includes a demo of the above menu, lots of delicious MetroFresh wine, and then a sit down dinner at the big table under the awning. We need a credit card to hold your place in the class and at least 48 hours if you need to cancel. Call or email me today with your phone number and I'll give you a call to sign you up. You don't need any skills, but bring you personality. You'll meet lots of fun people, have a great meal, and maybe learn a thing or two!
