This Week On Foodea.com – Dec 8 2008

Here is a sampling of what can be found on Foodea.com.

This week we feature a great pork roast recipe, as well as the world’s “best” chocolate chip cookie.

 

Dijon-Crusted Pork Roast

Ingredients

3 Pound Pork Roast, French Bone In
1/3 Cup Italian Bread Crumbs
2 Tablespoons Dijon Mustard
1 Clove Garlic, Pressed
Salt, to taste
Pepper, to taste

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350˚F.
  2. Mix the bread crumbs, mustard, garlic, salt and pepper to form a paste.
  3. Put the paste all over the fat side of the roast. Place in a uncovered roasting pan paste side up and roast until the internal temperature of the roast reaches 160˚F.
  4. Remove the roast from the oven and cover loosely with aluminum foil. Allow it to rest for 10 minutes before carving, at which time it will reach 170˚F, the best temperature to eat pork.
  5. Serve with garlic mashed potatoes, and broccoli with cheese sauce.

Gourmet Food & Wine Expo Wrap Up

This past weekend, Foodea.com had a booth at the Gourmet Food & Wine Expo. Having our own booth there was an amazing experience, as it was our first public showing of Foodea.com. We also had a chance to sample some great food and wine from our fellow exhibitors!

Check out some of the shots of our booth:

As you can see, we had a big honkin TV (courtesy of Camera Department)!

We showed two clips:

This was a montage of different cooking segments that foodea users have uploaded. *No audio.

This video was an overall tour of the site. *No audio.

People really seemed impressed by the site and it has been reflected in our rising hits. Another factor in our hit counts going up is the fact that, during the show, we opened up the site to the public! No more pesky invitation codes or signing in to take a look around.

We met some very cool people at the show, here are some shots of their booths.

Share a Glass was our neighbor. They are a wine entertainment company that create events for wine tastings and educate people about wine.

Live Organic Food Bar is one of the first restaurants to have a profile on foodea.com. Owned and run by Jennifer Italiano, the booth was wicked and the food there is incredibly tasty, and since its vegan, very healthy.
