Trish Magwood endorses Stouffer's Anytime Gourmet

A few days ago I went to CulinAerie cooking studio for a media launch of Anytime Gourmet frozen dinners. I sat next to Walter Nicholls and we teamed together to make our own Wild Salmon Dijon in Puff Pastry and Tuscan-Style Herb-Crusted Chicken with Balsamic Reduction. While I don't usually buy frozen dinners, these ones weren't too bad. They are essentially like semi-homemade dinners because you still have to do some of the work when you get it out of the package. The chicken and asparagus carbonara was my favorite. It was a fun event with great company.

One of the best parts of the evening was talking with Trish Magwood about her cooking show and tasting two of the desserts from her cookbook. Trish is the owner/operator of dish cooking studio and the host and co-creator of the party dish television series. As a food entrepreneur, chef and teacher, Trish has revolutionized the concept of the culinary business by creating “dish cooking studio”, her one stop culinary destination offering a cooking school, catering company, boutique and cafĂ©. Trish received her formal training at Peter Kump’s New York Cooking School, worked as a private chef and catered professionally for nine years with her own company. Her relaxed hands-on classes highlight easy-to-master techniques, seasonal menus and top quality ingredients. Trish is a member of the International Academy of Culinary Professionals (IACP) and the Women’s Culinary Network (WCN). Trish’s role on party dish is the same role she has at the dish cooking studio—a generalist and connector who creates innovative culinary experiences. Trish is also responsible for creating all the menus on the series.
