Have you ever pretended, while cooking, that you have your own cooking show? Perhaps you didn’t actually talk out loud, narrating your every move like I have, but admit it–culinary stardom has crossed your mind, hasn’t it? This is the thing: I recently became aware of Mivesta, a company that uses technology to connect cooks and foodies together for an in-the-moment, live event. This is not just a webinar, it’s multiple screens to see and hear all participants, a chat screen to see thoughts and questions, and a recipe. Everyone is cooking along, chatting, and viewing.
I connected with Mivesta through Twitter’s Foodiechats group, and soon I was asked to consider hosting an online cooking event. So, this Sunday, May 6, 2012 I will be talking while cooking Shrimp & Snow Crab Gumbo, but this time folks will be looking, listening, and interacting. Won’t you join me at 3 p.m. to either cook along (the recipe is posted here) or just watch? You might want to host your own CookAlong too! Click here to see me talking about the event and to RSVP.
