Cat Cora

Cooking with your kids is a great way to teach them about the importance of healthy eating, but we know it’s not always easy to find the time and energy to do so.

Which is exactly why you and your child should enter Loukoumi’s Secret Ingredient Recipe Contest! The contest is part of the release of Nick Katsoris’s latest book, Loukoumi’s Celebrity Cookbook (which we’ve already raved about). Children between the ages of 4 and 12 simply submit their favorite recipe and why they love it in 10 words or less. One child will win a private cooking lesson with celebrity chef Cat Cora.

The contest is accepting submissions until March 1. Download the contest entry form and enter today!

Got a Food Question? Ask Chef Britt Kurent!

Thursday, October 6th, 2011

Britt Kurent

True story: The other night I was on the phone with a friend at 11 p.m. when she had to put me on hold to answer the door. Her late night visitor? A deliveryman dropping off cookies for a bake sale at her child’s school the next day.

My friend is a busy working mom and didn’t have time to bake something herself (and is lucky enough to live in a city that delivers any type of food at any time of day). But what if there was no magical late-night deliveryman? What could she have whipped up with little effort in such a short period of time?

It’s a perfect question for Chef Britt Kurent. Trained at The Institute of Culinary Education, Kurent is founder and owner of Kurent Events, a catering company in New York City. She and her team cater everything from backyard BBQs to sophisticated weddings. Kurent was even a contestant on the hit Bravo show, Rocco’s Dinner Party.

And now she’s ready to help you! Kurent wants to answer your questions about food, cooking, and party planning. Hosting a party for kids and adults and clueless on what to serve to make everyone happy? Dying to learn how to stop burning every batch of cookies you make? Got an upcoming bake sale? Kurent has tips and suggestions for all of these questions and more.

Leave a question for Kurent in the comments section!
