The Great Allentown Fair got a little spicy Friday night with a cooking demonstration. It's part of the 'Farm to Table' cooking series.
Chef's went to work Friday night at the Farm to Table cooking stage at the Great Allentown Fair.
"What we have here is our garlic and shallot, olive oil mixture," explained Dori Kichline with The Culinary Experience.
The live demo's have been going on multiple times a day all week. On the menu, stuffed green peppers.
"We are using all farm fresh ingredients from local produce and local farmers," said Kichline.
Kichline and Nick Sandt own The Culinary Experience. For thirty minutes they educated onlookers on how to make the perfect stuffed pepper.
"And what were gonna do then is fill the pepper," demonstrated Kichline. "We're gonna top it with just a little more marinara sauce."
Then came the tasting. Organizers say there's always a crowd eager to take part.
"It was absolutely delicious," smiled Tabitha Rice. "I loved it."
Not only did the folks in the audience get to watch the demonstration, and sample the food, but all of them got to go home with a copy of the recipe.
"When you see them do it, it's better than just reading how to do it," said Elaine Molchany.
"Seeing someone doing it and then getting the recipe is so much easier then reading it from a book," explained Elias Makoul.
The series is quickly becoming a fan favorite.
"It's grown," said Coordinator for the Farm to Table Cooking Stage, Pat Rice. "We have a bigger crowd, we have more chairs every year so it seems to be working."
And folks are taking ideas home with them.
"I really wanted to try one, and now I have a recipe I can make at home," said Makoul.
"I never made it with cheeses before so that's something different," explained Molchany.
You can catch more from the Farm to Table Cooking stage through Monday.
