Yesterday, food writer Pam Denney and I went to the Southern Women's Show to see Bianca Phillips' cooking demo.
She and Stephanie Roy made vegan chorizo sausages based on a recipe from Vegan Brunch by Isa Chandra Moskowitz. They did great and then they did better by passing out samples.
There are loads of food-related vendors at the show.
You can buy bunny-shaped fudge from Country Kettle Fudge, 3 for $10.
We got samples from German Roasted Nuts. Wonderful. A large cone goes for $15.
This is Alice of Ala Carte Alice. She started the business, which provides gourmet mixes for desserts, dips, cheeseballs, etc. to gift stores, as a stay-at-home-mother. She now has four employees, and she and her husband have opened a restaurant in Lewisville, Mississippi.
Look! It's the Slap Chop in action.
The show continues today through 6 p.m.
