Food Bloggers, You’re Invited to a Party, Emeril-Style!
Hey, food bloggers, does the challenge of cooking an entire meal using just one pot for a chance to win perks and prizes sound like a party to you? Then join us as we celebrate America’s favorite chef Emeril Lagasse in our ONE-POT BLOGGER COOKING PARTY!
Sizzling Skillets and Other One-Pot Wonders is the newest cookbook by one of the world’s most celebrated chefs, Emeril Lagasse! To usher in the publication of his latest cookbook, which goes on sale September 27, 2011, we are sponsoring a party—where the guests are our fantastic food bloggers, and the good times are had in the kitchen! As a participating blogger, you’ll be asked to cook recipes featured in Sizzling Skillets at least three times a week for three weeks and blog about your experiences. We’ll reward you with cash and prizes, not to mention assistance with building blog traffic and your social media platform with the help of Emeril’s team!
Whether you’re savvy with skillets and sauté pans, or an expert on slow-cookers, you’ll be able to cook and eat with diversity, adapting what you prepare to your available time, meal, and budget.
