Cooking Personality Momma Cuisine Kicks Off Summer Cooking Tour with Buick Featuring live demos at each of six Farmers Market locations, Buick test drives and celebrity guests
Lisle, Ill. (May 30, 2013)—Most Chicagoans attend summer farmers markets in their quaint downtown neighborhoods, but this year Chicago’s suburbs are hosting their own weekend markets to accommodate rising demands for healthy eating options from local “foodies.”
From Lisle to Geneva to Vernon Hills, families and those new to cooking can get a taste of Momma Cuisine’s recipes all summer long. From June through August, Johanna Cook (creator of the Momma Cuisine, Inc. brand) will be hosting live cooking demonstrations at six farmers markets across western and southern suburbs in Illinois.
The public will have a chance to meet Momma Cuisine in person, discuss everyday cooking tips with her accompanying guests, and enter to a contest to win a free, one-week loan of a 2013 Buick vehicle. This year’s sponsors is co-sponsored by Buick, Kenmore, NessAlla Kombucha, Tagkast, and Scene Chicago.
Midwestern foodies can register for any of these free presentations through the Momma Cuisine EventBrite page:http://mcbuicktour-eorg.eventbrite.com.
In 2012, the Momma Cuisine Summer French Market Cooking Tour (also presented by Buick) generated 12 million impressions on Twitter alone over the course of six Tour locations – about 2 million impressions per location. It also attracted between 500 and 1,500 food aficionados and new consumers for sponsors, and was publicized with the help of WGN Midday News, WCUI’s You and Me This Morning, Chicagonista, The Local Tourist, Foodie Chats and social media sponsors.
