Calling all great cooks, good cooks, part-time cooks, wannabe cooks and “Foodies!”

Tuesday, September 11, 2012 — Charlotte, NC—(September 11, 2012) The SOUTHERN WOMEN’S

SHOW (Thursday, September 20 through Sunday, September 23 at The Park

Expo and Conference Center) will feature some of the finest chefs

and bakers in the country and they’ll be offering cooking tips, how-to

secrets, newly created recipes and demonstrations involving everything

from delicious wines to tempting cookie recipes; from hot sauces to

southern homespun, old-time comfort food; from mouthwatering chicken

biscuits to hearty meats and gravies; from extraordinary desserts to

vegan meals …  they’re all part of what’s new in the world of FOOD.

Orchid Paulmeier, best known for her stint on “The Next Food Network”

and owner of One Hot Mama’s Restaurant in Hilton Head, SC will share

three generations of proven favorite recipes - from brisket pulled pork

to cornbread and more  - the best description is “simply spectacular!”

Vegans are more-and-more in style with new cookbooks consistently

appearing in bookstores. Fool A Carnivore by Nancy Olah is the bible

of the meatless menu. She uses the expression, “Meaty Main Dishes ---

Minus the Meat!” and provides her trademark scrumptious veggie lasagna

recipe along with hundreds of other classic meat dishes created with

garden herbs, fresh cheeses, and an impressive array of vegetables that

perfect every recipe in her cookbooks.  Nancy proudly claims that Julia

Child is her culinary hero but we’re sure Julia Child would find Nancy

Olah just as much of a hero to her!

Jelly is not simply for breakfast toast and lunchtime sandwiches any

more!  Nor is it used sparingly with lamb.  Thanks to Bunny Powers and

her creative juices, baking with jelly is becoming the latest trend in

preparing and serving entrees, vegetables, desserts or anything

in-between.  The infamous “Aunt Bunny” has published a full cookbook

titled, Eat, Drink & Have Jelly! Cooking With Aunt Bunny’s Gourmet

Wine Jelly containing recipes for such amazing foods as pork tenderloin

with malbec sauce, cherry crescent coffee cake, and a list of veggies

and desserts that will leave your mouth watering.
