AUSTIN, Texas (PRWEB) March 11, 2013
Food on the Table teamed up with KitchenAid and Executive Chef David Bull of Congress Austin, Second Bar + Kitchen and Bar Congress to host a hands-on app demo and cooking class for members of the food and technology community this Friday, March 8 at the Whole Foods Market Culinary Center.
The Food on the Table team started the app demo by using the app to plan a meal for the cooking class. The app then created an organized grocery list for the meal’s recipe using sale items at Whole Foods Market.
“Cooking is the easy part, it's planning and shopping that take time,” said Manuel Rosso, founder and CEO of Food on the Table. “Food on the Table uses our knowledge of individual shopper habits to deliver the right information at the right time to make it as painless as possible”
Chef David Bull led the hands-on cooking class as he shared his cooking tips and techniques, including how to identify fresh fish and properly sear and cook it. The meal, which consisted of sockeye salmon, Swiss chard, a split pea puree and Mandarin-dill vinaigrette, was then prepared by each of the attendees as they followed Chef Bull's instruction. Attendees were also are given a chance to take home the KitchenAid appliances they cooked with.
Publications represented by attendees covering food and technology trends included The Wall Street Journal, Food and Tech Connect, AdAge, Whole Foods Market and The Food Network.
The app demo and cooking class was used to show how Food on the Table uses mobile technology to find the sales at a user’s local stores and integrates them in to recipes that match each user’s food preferences and dietary needs. Users are then provided with a customized meal plan and organized grocery lists.
David Bull, a father of five that admittedly struggles with weeknight dinners, is the executive chef at Congress Austin, the only restaurant to be awarded five stars by The Austin American Statesman. Congress was also honored as one of the top 10 best new restaurants of 2011 by Bon Appetit magazine.
