I was able to attend a hands on cooking class with Marcus Samuelsson as we partnered together with Spectrum® at a local farmers market in downtown Austin a few weeks ago for an olive oil cooking demonstration. I had already tested out the products in my kitchen, and shared the Avocado Lime Shrimp Salad recipe already on my site with avocado oil and olive oil. Over the years, I have tried to educate myself better on what is best to use for creating meals for my family. Working with them helped to better inform me about healthy oils to use in cooking and food preparation.

Spectrum Event in Austin

I took my husband and 2 daughters to the cooking event, and it was a delight to meet Marcus. I’ll admit, I wasn’t super familiar with his cooking skills before the event, but it didn’t matter. He was SOOOO nice! He took a special interest in my youngest, Cali, as she shared how much she loves making cookies and helping in the kitchen. Though she planned to sit behind the scenes with my husband (as my camera man) while my older daughter Alyssa and I worked together in the cooking demo, Marcus actually called Cali up on stage to be HIS assistant in the tent full of onlookers! She didn’t skip a bit as she joined him on stage.

We created a most delicious Avocado Toast, and not just any ordinary avocado toast, it had all sorts of spices and textured goodness in the recipe. Cali helped Marcus fry the egg, while Alyssa and I worked together on mixing the avocado and spices. He then made succotash for all of us to try, and I’d never had that before, so THAT was fun! To see more recipes using the flavorful oils, head to the oil recipes page on Spectrum®.

While I was at the cooking demonstration, I had a Facebook LIVE. It’s a bit tricky to hear whats going on, but you get a sense of it! You can see Cali going up on stage part way through.
