I am excited to announce that in but a few short days, I will be attending the Food Bloggers of Canada Conference! As a Canadian Beef Brand Ambassador, I am honoured to be attending this event. I can’t wait to meet my fellow foodies and chat with some of the people in the food industry!
As someone who is obsessed with FoodNetworkCA, restaurant hopping, taste testing, and creating (and recreating) recipes, this event is something I have been anxiously awaiting!
I’m looking forward to seeing Heather Travis from Canadian Beef again. She’s my #BeefSoulSista! I’m also excited to chat with Dana McCauley again. She is one of my absolute favourites.
Included in the conference pass is some fantastic swag! I recently received three gorgeous pieces from Nordic Ware which I was eager to try out.
The package contained:
- Nordic Ware Pro Cast Traditions Aluminum 3 qt Dutch Oven
- Nordic Ware Pro Cast Traditions Aluminum Traditions Braiser
- Nordic Ware 365 Chicken Leg and Galapeno Griller
My Nordic Ware items arrived at my home while I was away in Toronto for some social media events and work-related meetings. My wonderful husband BBM’d me the above photos. Hubby was almost as excited as I was. He knows how happy kitchenware and kitchen gadgets make me!
Luckily for me, I’m staying at @SoberJulie’s house and she also has the Nordic Ware (since she’s attending the Food Bloggers of Canada Conference as well). I was anxious to use the Nordic Ware items and decided to come up with something quick and easy to make for Julie’s family as a thank you for letting me stay at their house until we head to the Hockley Valley Resort on the weekend for the conference.
We gathered up some ingredients in Julie’s kitchen and I came up with a classic Filipino dish – Chicken Adobo.
Check out our friend, Spud!
I was excited to show SoberJulie how to use her Dutch Oven. The Nordic Ware Pro Cast Traditions Aluminum 3 qt Dutch Ovenworks really well. I was really pleased with the quality of the product. The Dutch Oven is constructed of nonstick cast aluminum for fast and even heat distribution. The textured fused nonstick interior is durable, stain-resistant and allows foods to brown and sear evenly. Safe in oven up to 425 degrees.
What I love about this Dutch Oven is that it is perfect for stews, casseroles, small roasts, and one pot meals. This is the perfect thing to cook Chicken Adobo in!
CHICKEN ADOBO RECIPE
1 medium sized onion, quartered
Truth be told, I sometimes cheat and just saute the onion and garlic, add the potatoes, and then the chicken, cover and let cook. Okay, I’ll be totally honest. That’s what I always do. It turns out just as yummy, but without the extra steps of browning the meat and then pouring the sauce over it.
I was really pleased that Julie’s family loved the Chicken Adobo! It was the first time her kids had Filipino food and they really enjoyed it! Yay!
