BlogHer 2010: Chef Scott Leibfried at the Bumble Bee Foods Reception

On the evening of August 5th, I attended the Bumble Bee Foods reception, which took place at the Viking Demo Kitchen on Third Ave in New York City during BlogHer 2010. Even though I am not a huge fan of seafood, aside from shrimp and lobster, my husband is a seafood-lover through and through. So I was curious to see what new ways I could incorporate seafood into my family's diet.

The catered event was intimate, which was perfect. It was the night before BlogHer Day 1, so I was happy to meet some bloggers I have collaborated with online face-to-face, as well as to become acquainted with some bloggers I was not familiar with already.

The best part of the evening was watching Chef Scott Leibfried of Fox Network's Hell's Kitchen create three fairly easy recipes using some of Bumble Bee Food's new seafood products and then being able to sample the results. I was so pleased to find that Mr. Leibfried was exceptionally personable and approachable.

Here are some photos from the event . . .

Although I am not usually a fan of tuna, I actually very much liked this new product . . . the Bumble Bee Easy Peel Sensations Spicy Thai Chili Seasoned Tuna Medley. This product made me look at tuna differently and could lead to something good. I do intend to experiment a little bit. If any of these experiments turn out to be a hit with my family, then I will definitely share them under Easy Recipes.

Thank you to Bumble Bee Foods for hosting such a great event and for providing us with information, recipes, and coupons so we are able to try these new products in our own kitchen.
