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


Tuesday, September 11, 2012 — When it comes to culinary expertise,  Chef “Culinary Carrie” is known

both as a food expert as well as an esteemed educator.  As Chef

Instructor at Johnson & Wales University for almost two decades,

Carrie Hegnauer ‘s experience in cooking ranges from Polynesian dinner

cruise menus  - using all fresh ingredients - to doses of wine and

spirits for all food occasions.  She is passionate about “technique” ~

  her favorite part of cooking ~ and she’ll share her how-to’s at the

Southern Women’s Show.  To quote Carrie, “I love to help others  achieve

greater culinary knowledge.”  A perfect chance to learn from the expert!

The beauty of AMY LYNNE’S TOFFEE is not only the fascinating variety

of toffee items ~ candy, cakes, crunch and blondie’s blended with

chocolate or vanilla and dappled with pecans, almonds and all sorts of

yummies ~ they have the most delectable taste and light consistency.

They’ve been created by owner Amy Johnson, a Johnson & Wales Culinary

School graduate trained in top-ranked hotels to be creative and unique.

She has a passion for her toffees and so will you when you bite into

them.  They’re gourmet and they’re fabulous!

Julie Busha*will launch SLAWSA into the Charlotte area. Her

infamous spicy gourmet topping ~ a fat-free, gluten-free,

cholesterol-free condiment fit for meats, dips and veggies of all kinds

~  has been met with rave reviews in other parts of the country.  This

is the chance to enjoy it here and introduce it to your friends as your

most recent unique “discovery.”

The list of intriguing chefs, bakers, cooks and cookbook authors

continues with such food gurus as Lisa Shively, Stacy Cacciatore, Jason

Nain and Robin Emmons.   All with recipes and cooking tips for you to

savor and enjoy --- then take home and make your own!
