Anybody Really Can Cook!

Last Sunday we took part in the Fourth Annual Findlay Market Fall Festival. This event has grown each year, and this year's celebration featured farmers market specials, live music, pumpkin painting, and an Instagram Photo Hunt. Of all the activities, though, my personal favorite was the cooking demonstration and here's why:

1. Merchants shared their talents. Thanks to Sam and Mimi from Mimi's Gourmet Eggrolls, Barry from Daisy Mae's Market, and Debbie from Gramma Debbie's Kitchen for showing us how the professionals do it!

2. The community got involved. Brigitte Cordier from Anyone Can Cook, LLC demonstrated her pumpkin soup and even encouraged a few youngsters to help her stir the pot. Thanks, Brigitte!

3. Curious shoppers paused to listen and ask questions...and we hope to be inspired.

4. Hungry folks stopped by to enjoy the samples, talk about food, share a recipe, and complement the chefs.

We're excited about the idea of hosting more cooking demonstrations at Findlay Market. There's even talk of a shared community kitchen where budding chefs could try out their skills. Now wouldn't that give you another great reason to come see what's cooking at Findlay Market?
