~ Culinary Q&A & Kitchen Therapy Too (11/11/11) ~

Culinary Q & A #2On today's Friday Q&A and 11/11/11 date, Kitchen Encounters has a fun announcement to make:

I have added another television adventure to my repertoire.  In addition to my annual work with WPSU for their Celebrity Chef's cooking demonstration and my own weekly Kitchen Encounters cooking segment on WHVL's Centre of it All show (channel 235), I will now be representing The Philips Hotel's 1921 Restaurant on:

WTAJ-TV's Chef's Showcase

This segment will air every Friday during their 4:00PM Central PA Live show (local channel 10). Each week I will be taking a dish from The 1921's menu and showing viewers how to cook my version of it in the home kitchen.  All of the recipes will be posted right here on Kitchen Encounters, along with my step-by-step directions and photos.  We're also going to link each cooking segment right here to my  blog (see bottom left hand column of KE home page), so, you can even watch them right here if you missed the show!

PICT3450Last Friday, I prepared a luscious appetizer ~ Creamy Mushroom Bruschetta a la "The Philips" ~, and you can find my recipe by clicking into Categories 1, 12, 14 or 21.  The link to that segment is up too, so give that a click if you'd like to watch me on live TV!

PICT3905I am really looking forward to this new Kitchen Encounter.  Live TV presents a new set of cooking challenges for me (no editing), plus, it is shot on their WTAJ set in their Altoona studio, rather than here in Melanie's Kitchen!

In about an hour, my assistant Jeanne and I will be loadin' up and takin' our show on the road. This afternoon on Chef's Showcase, I'll be making my ~ Smoky 'n Sweet Roasted-Tomato & Thyme Soup a la "The Philips" ~ and you can find that recipe in Categories 2 or 22.  It will be up on the WTAJ website by 5:30PM and here on my Kitchen Encounters blog this evening!

Enjoy your weekend everyone.  Once again:  To leave a comment or ask a question, simply click on the blue title of any post, scroll to the end of it and type away!
