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
