The Spicy Easy Cooking Demo for Charity was an evening of learning about spice mixtures and how to easily elevate everyday ingredients!
A huge thank you to Phillip Hall who was our photographer and videographer!
Unique Fund Raising Dinner Ideas
This cooking demo is my second event for charity. It’s a ton of work. There’s no getting around that. But, the number of hands on board who want to contribute their time and help is endless! From the dishwashers to a lot of the food to the photography, it seems to the collective effort to pull off a four-hour cooking demo where eight people ate to their hearts’ content was a huge resounding success!
Everyone left with full bellies, lots of laughs, great wine and cocktails and lots of favors in their baskets.

Kita and I decided that we would focus our cooking demo on spice mixtures. Spice mixtures can elevate even the most simple ingredients to something pretty spectacular. So together we prepared five mezze entrees as our guests watched and participated.
Grilled Shrimp Skewers with warmed toasted baguette and
harissa infused oils
with charred tomatoes & Warmed Umbrian Lentil Salad Ooomami New York Strips with a herb compound butter
with a creamy mint sauce & Dukkah-Crusted Lamb Chop Roasted Harissa Eggplant
& Dukkah Crusted Fish Thai Red Curry Corn Roasted Brussels & Broccolini & Cool Cucumber Salad
Tropical charred harissa pineapple and Dukkah and cinnamon citrus
A Global Infsion of Flavors
A four-hands charity cooking demo featuring two chefs. Me, Ally. And, my dear foodie friend, Kita, of Girl Carnivore. Together we planned this amazing array of flavors based upon spice mixtures from around the globe!
Our eight guests were folks who attended the 2021 Spring Fund Raising Gala for the PIFMA. They were the lucky ones because they kept bidding on this live cooking demo with Kita and Ally! The next event is scheduled for
