Cooking Show with Johnnie Gabriel

Last Saturday, I went to a cooking show with my friend & neighbor, Lorelei! For Christmas, she got both of us tickets to go see Johnnie Gabriel. As I mentioned in my last post, Johnnie Gabriel, is the cousin to Paula Deen (aka -"The Butter Lady")!
It was a blast and we enjoyed some new tips and even got to "chat" with Paula Deen via Johnnie's cell phone!Johnnie made Shrimp & Grits (YUCK -I am so not southern when it comes to grits or SHRIMP-I have never devourered a taste for seafood),tomato salad, cheese straws, & key lime pie (yummy photo above, that was on the big screen)! The pie looked awesome!
Lorelei and I picked up her new cookbook, "Cooking in the South with Johnnie Gabriel"
As you can see from the photo above, we met her in person and had her sign our cookbooks. I LOVE to cook, so it was a big deal for me to meet her! She is a sweet lady and was so sincere to talk to!
I am having a hard time to post the video...(tried 2 times now) I will try and post this video later. Johnnie on the phone, with Paula....listen closely for Paula asking about the Butter! (Johnnie is calling her for advice on cooking Shrimp).

So glad you got that experience! Cooking shows are a blast! I'll never forget when I got to work one and I screwed up the stuffing recipe and had to go by StoveTop at the last minute. Much better being in the audience, I am sure!! Send some recipes my way! ;)
