February's Monthly Featured Chef: Tessa Kiros!

It's time for February's Monthly Featured Chef Event! Our time to go back and revisit one of our previous wonderful IHCC featured chefs. Whether you cooked with us when this chef was featured, or joined the fun later on, we hope you will enjoy cooking along with them this week. 

February's Featured Chef: Tessa Kiros

When we featured Tessa Kiros back in 2011, she was new to many of our members (and one of our least social media-centered chefs), but her beautiful cookbooks and global recipes quickly made Tessa a cooking club favorite during the six months we spent with her. 


"I love traveling. Collecting things I love. Food. People. Colour. Smells. Details. Different cultures & traditions. Why they do what they do & how they put their dishes together. How people, families & nations connect."  --Tessa Kiros

This week we are celebrating Tessa Kiros, February's Featured Chef!

Please make and post your Tessa Kiros dish by Sunday, February 14th.

If you have cooked with Tessa before, feel free to share any favorites of her recipes in your post. (Quick Tip: If you have not cooked with Tessa Kiros and you are having challenges finding an online recipe, go back at look at some of our IHCC Tessa Kiros Themes {You'll find them on her tab under the header}, as many of our members posted the Tessa recipes they made.) 

Please remember to link a thumbnail image and leave a comment after linking so we don't miss out on your dish.

Monthly Featured Chef: Jamie Oliver

Do you remember back in the *olden days* when Jamie Oliver was known as "The Naked Chef?!" You know, before he started leading the Food Revolution... ;-) 

Jamie, we love you for your smile, that cheeky British humor, your simple and tasty recipes, and especially because you want children (and all of us) to eat better! That attention to food education and healthy eating is shown in your newest cookbook, Everyday Super Food, published this past October.
 

So let's celebrate Jamie Oliver, our Monthly Featured Chef for January! 

Please make and post your Jamie Oliver dish by Sunday, January 17th! 

Feel free to share some of your favorite Jamie Oliver recipes in your post.
