I am so excited that the Southern Women’s Show is returning to Raleigh from April 24th-26th for its 30th year of fashion, home and beauty entertainment as well as a fantastic lineup of culinary features and events. Attendees can savor food and drink samples, discover new recipes and techniques, experience live cooking demonstrations and watch chefs “battle” head-to-head. And you can win tickets from Kel’s Café – keep reading to find out how!
Headlining the weekend’s culinary entertainment is a series of events taking place on the Food Lion Chef Challenge Stage.
These demonstrations are designed to provide easy, fresh and budget-friendly meal ideas. According to a recent press release, “attendees will enjoy:
Chopped Challenges: See chefs go head-to-head in the kitchen during the ultimate cooking competition. Audience members will choose items from a pantry of quality Food Lion brand items to challenge chefs to create a delicious meal under pressure and on a budget.
The Recipe Box: Chefs will demonstrate their favorite easy, fresh and affordable recipes while showing guests how to prepare delicious meals with seasonal ingredients. Plus, they will share tips and techniques from their own restaurant kitchens to save attendees time and money.
The Taste Challenge: Food Lion only puts its name on quality private brand products customers can count on every day for taste and an affordable price and will prove it by going head-to-head with national brands in a Taste Challenge. Guests can compare a variety of Food Lion products to their national brand counterparts and cast their vote for their favorites.
For more local flavors, show goers can also sample their way through the Got to Be NC Pavilion, featuring a variety of North Carolina products. Vendors include: Nancy Jo’s Homemade, Foss Gourmet Foods, Heide’s Gourmet Buttermints, Harvest Time Foods, Augusta’s Pimento Cheese, Carolina Packers, KPKandies, Tonya’s Cookies, Floury Apron, NC Fudge, Bobbees Bottling and Bertie County Peanuts.
