McCormick Discover Flavors Event
McCormick has launched the McCormick Flavor HQ – a Facebook app that also comes in a mobile version. The McCormick Flavor HQ is for people who love to cook and for those who want to learn how herbs and spices make life a little more colorful.
Personally, salt, pepper, and rosemary are the only herbs and spices I know of. It’s quite a shocker to see 30 different herbs and spices in one rack. But today, I learned a lot – even what turmeric is. To learn more about these herbs and spices, and how to use them, you should check out McCormick Flavor HQ.
McCormick Flavor HQ Facebook app lets you gain access to an interactive and online recipe book. This app lets you see different recipes ranging from appetizers to main dishes, even desserts and beverages. This app also lets you submit your own recipes, which will be shared in World Wide Web. So, if you enjoy experimenting in the kitchen, the McCormick Flavor HQ is the best avenue to share your gastronomic discoveries.
Aside from the launch of McCormick Flavor HQ, attendees also had the opportunity to learn and experience the herbs and spices. Two games where held during the event. First one is guessing the herbs or spices used. The next one is a cooking game where the participants were provided with ingredients and different herbs and spices that they can use to craft their own dish. These were awesome ways to experience McCormick.
I was amazed with the result of the cook-off. I am pretty sure that the contestants were not prepared for the game but the output of the cooking is truly amazing. It’s wonderful that you can do amazing dishes with the help these herbs and spices.
Of course, the event won’t been complete without having a feast. I pretty much enjoyed everything on the buffet table, but I put my hands up in the air for the kebabs.
Washed down all these gastronomic goodness with a refreshing Rosemary Iced Tea. Thought that Rosemary is just an herb used for fried or roasted chicken. Was shocked to find out you can use it on a refreshing drink.
Ended the feast with a cup of Mexican Coffee. Cocoa. Cinnamon. And the impending rain. It was perfect.
Thanks McCormick for letting us be part of the launch! More power! Oh, and turmeric is our luyang dilaw which is commonly used in making bringhe (Kapampangan’s Paella).
Spread some awesome..ness..
