Nature’s Pride at The Tasting Pavilion


I am nervous, and my palms are sweating. This is so unlike me, but I have just received an email congratulating me as one of the Nature’s Pride Bread Ambassadors. I will have to demonstrate my egg white veggie frittata muffin recipe in front of all the attendees, and I feel like a hoax. Why?

I have no culinary education.

Then I remember that what I do have is many memories standing the kitchen with my mom, helping her prepare the fabulous meals that seemed so natural and easy for her to prepare. A culinary education is not a prerequisite for cooking great food, and for that I am thankful.

Fast forward to the Tasting Pavilion at the First Annual Foodbuzz Festival and I am all smiles. Life is good. I am proud of the company I am representing, and the catering team has done a great job recreating my recipe for the attendees to taste. The Nature’s Pride team is incredibly nice and the other Bread Ambassadors are sweet as bread (not pie, as we represent Nature’s Pride of course). The afternoon has started off nicely.

Nature’s Pride put together beautiful recipe cards for all the attendees to take. Here is the one containing my recipe:
