#HoodCreamCreations Google+ Hangout with Chef Chris CoombsChristopher Coombs, Hood Cream Chef
Growing up, Hood dairy products were always a big part of my life. They remain that way today as I'm now a chef and restaurant owner. My grandfather drove a Hood truck for more than forty years and so the Hood red and white logo will forever hold a sentimental meaning to me. I am honored to now wear that logo on my chef's coat and serve as the
official Hood Cream Chef
. It is a wonderful tribute to my family; and as a Hood Cream customer, I am proud to use a local New England product in my dishes at Deuxave, dbar and Boston Chops.
To kick off this partnership, I'm hosting a Google+ Hangout with Hood Cream on Tuesday, April 8, at 6:00 p.m. During the Hangout, I'll be doing a live cooking demonstration, at which time I'll encourage users to follow along and ask questions about the recipes, Hood Cream, or about cooking in general. You can join in the conversation by using the #HoodCreamCreations hashtag on Twitter. Another perk is that users who ask me questions on Twitter will have the chance to win a $100 American Express gift card, which they can use to create their own spring celebration meal.
Spring is my favorite time of the year to cook because it's when the beginning of fresh vegetable season commences and I have the opportunity to cook with some of my favorites like morels, ramps, fiddleheads and spring peas. Everything seems to come alive and grow in the spring and chefs love being able to table root vegetables and canned vegetables to focus on the fresh, first tastes of spring.
I will be cooking three spring celebration recipes during the Google+ Hangout: an Asparagus Gratin , a Spring Carbonara , and a Brioche French Toast , all of which feature Hood Cream.
You can find the hangout by visiting the HP Hood Google+ page. Don't forget to RSVP and tune in on April 8 at 6:00 p.m., at the hangout link below.
