Foods From Around the Globe

During this weekend's Virtual WorldFest event we will all have the opportunity to try our hand at preparing foods from a variety of countries.  Whether you are in the mood for something simple and sweet or maybe a savory comfort food, we've got you covered.  See below for all the ingredients you will need to cook along with our chefs this weekend.

On Friday we'll be making Amazing Haitian Legume with Chef Harryelle Eugene.  Get ready for some serious Hatian comfort food.  This meal will take you about 2 1/2 hours, but it is worth it!  

Tune in Saturday to make Easy French Crepes with Chef Holly Pierce. These simple crepes will be a big crowd pleaser and are quick to whip up for breakfast, a snack, dessert or even for lunch or dinner.  With these crepes, the options are endless.

On Sunday you'll have the chance to do a little baking with Sam Lochrie and her Scotch Drop Scones.  And then a litte later come on back to make the ever pleasing Chicken Picatta with Kerstin Lochrie and your Sunday dinner will be complete.
