  1. What a fantastic food event! Wish I lived closer. I would have loved to attend this. Next time, I hope you do something in the east coast and I’ll be there front and center to cheer you on!

  2. Hi Monica,
    What a lovely setting for your event! As someone who brings far too much equipment for my own cooking demos, I am curious what type of hotplate you use? Do you really only bring that one hotplate and a frying pan? Thanks for any advice you can give.

    1. Linda – It is not a hot plate but a high end induction burner. I had several induction ready pans with me but they are not all displayed on the table. We were given an extra table to store things
