I receive a lot of emails from PR firms here at the CbsoP kitchens. Most are simply requests to publish press releases or to offer trials of products that I quite honestly have no interest in. I get these two to three times a week on average. The politely worded requests get a polite reply that I am not interested. The pushy or downright poorly written requests are sent to the bin. This is the lot of a food blogger.
But every now and then someone sends me something that makes me sit up and pay attention. I received one of these emails early this week. It was something I couldn’t pass by. Something I not only needed to share with all of you, but something I simply had to be a part of.
I’ve been challenged. By Pepperidge Farm Puff Pastry. To do the thing I love most…
To create something unique.
Pepperidge Farm Puff Pastry has challenged me to create a “Sophisticated and simple original recipe” based on Texan cuisine. If that’s not the absolute perfect fit for a seat of his pants cook, I don’t know what is. Of course, they’re going to supply coupons for the puff pastry, and compensate me for my time but the rest of the gig is all me, and I’ve been wanting to do something with puff pastry for quite a while now.
They want my recipe on their site. Can you believe that? How COOL is this!? Whatever I submit is actually going through a taste panel in their official kitchen. This is a professional gig. My first; and I’m quite excited.
I’m not doing this alone though. I need some input from you guys as well. Take a look at www.PuffPastry.com and see if there are any recipes that you think are really stellar. Are there any that you’d like to try? If so, I can use those ideas as a base for whatever it is I come up with.
Stay tuned for more information on the challenge. I’m sure I have fellow bloggers out there who are involved. It’s going to be very interesting to see what everyone comes up with.
For now, I’m off to ponder pastry. Have a great day all.
As always. Share and Enjoy!
