KitchenAid Canada is sponsoring the Cook for the Cure event and encouraging food enthusiasts to “Put their Best Plate Forward” – you might remember some of my tips and tricks about this topic too. In short, my top 5 tips are:
- Be a planner
- Write lists
- Choose your dishes wisely
- Make sure you have backup food (and wine!)
- Enjoy yourself!
(you can read the full post here). Hopefully my tips will help you out over the next few weeks – I know I can use all the tips I can get heading into entertaining season!
