Cooking for Two at Home. Can it be Fast, Frugal and Fun? You Bet!

Award-Winning Cookbook Author Warren Caterson Will Show You How

 

My, how quickly things change. Just a few short years ago, restaurants were booming and cooking at home was something one watched on TV, but rarely attempted in real life. Then something shifted. In a big way. Perhaps it was the economy. Or a desire to eat healthier. For whatever reason, people wanted to rediscover the joy of cooking. 

Recognizing that need, Chef Warren Caterson wrote the award-winning cookbooks Table for Two – The Cookbook for Couples and Table for Two – Back for Seconds (Winfield & Scott Press) each featuring over 235 recipes using fresh and readily available ingredients. Now he has taken his passion on the road with an entertaining and energetic presentation that will inspire your inner chef while tickling your taste buds. 

Join Chef Warren as he shares dozens of kitchen tips, cooking hints and humorous anecdotes about the joys and challenges of cooking for two. Chef Warren will answer such questions as: Is it possible to chop onions without tears? Are pre-packaged frozen entrées really time and money savers? What is the best upgrade for my kitchen? How do I preserve all that leftover fresh parsley when I’ve only used a teaspoon or two? And, should I cook with wine, and if so, what kind should I use? 

Chef Warren then ends each presentation with a cooking demonstration, preparing a healthy entrée that anyone can replicate in their own home in under 15 minutes. 

Join Warren on Saturday from 1PM – 3PM – 5PM, and on Sunday 11AM – 1PM – 3PM at the Boston Home Show!

George Saterial (Magician)

What does it take to become magic’s only Two-Time Gold Medal Champion? Only one magician has ever successfully discovered the answer: George Saterial. By merging a truly original concept with classic style, an obsession with perfection, charisma, and tireless practice and work, George Saterial has achieved arguably magic’s greatest feat.

George has become the first and only magician in the world to receive magic’s highest and most coveted honors, the “Gold Medal of Excellence,” from the industry’s foremost associations–The International Brotherhood of Magicians and the Society of American Magicians. It’s rare that either award is given–in nearly twenty years they have been granted a combined total of only seven times. George was awarded both honors in the same year.

Watch George at the Boston Home Show on February 26th at 2 PM.
