Anyone who likes cooking will love Pampered Chef products and since we are a WI filled with cooks, bakers and foodies this meeting was a popular one!
We were joined by Jo Muscroft from Pampered Chef who brought along a selection of wonderful products but the twist was we actually got to try them out while making a Florentine Chicken Ring and icing some mini cookies. It was a Ready, Steady, Cook style challenge as members of our group were pitted against each other to make the Florentine Chicken Ring using Pampered Chef products such as the food chopper, stoneware and grater. It was such a quick, easy and delicious recipe, made up of chicken, spinach, peppers, cheese, mayo and croissant dough (a wonderous thing!) and it looked really impressive, definitely one to bring out at a dinner party! Next it was time to put the Pampered Chef icing tube up against a gold old fashioned piping bag to ice some mini cookies. My team had the tube and I have to admit, a piping bag is easier, which was proven when the other team won…boo!
If your mouth is still watering at the mention of the Florentine Chicken Ring, take a look at Jo’s blog for this recipe and more. You can also follow Jo on Twitter @pamperedsheff for more tasty ideas. Jo made lots of sales on the night which is great for SHWI as 10% goes to our nominated charity for this year, Haven. Next month we’ve got the fabulous Mary Jane Baxter coming up from the Big Smoke to talk to us about her new book, Chic on a Shoestring, can’t wait! See you all there!
