If food is your passion, then <www.themoorecountynews.com> has something cooking for you.
What’s Cookin’, the new online microsite for The Moore County News, has debuted with thousands of recipes, hundreds of cooking videos, tips and a lot more, all at the click of a button.
“We are extremely excited about What’s Cookin’,” said Moore County News publisher Robert Holman. “It has such a wide range of options for cooks of all skill levels; it really is like having a cooking school at your fingertips.”
The site, located online at <www.food.themoorecountynews.com>, is more than just a handful of cooking videos and recipes. The new site brings together professional chefs who demonstrate some of their favorite dishes, as well as food bloggers who offer recipes with an extra dash of insight into the creative process.
“There’s a wide variety of recipes for all seasons, events and tastes,” Holman said. “In fact, we were discussing the methods and varieties of holiday foods in our office just last week. But with spring closer than you think, we could just have easily been talking about grilling options, a great winter stew or tons of the other interesting culinary diversions available.
“I grew up in a family restaurant. I’m used to very traditional meals and I consider myself the cook in the family, but this website can help me broaden my horizons as well.”
The site, which grows each week with new and exciting recipes, already offers a wealth of possibilities for anyone looking to add a little spice to their kitchen life, Holman added.
“There are simply a myriad of options to try. Some are fairly exotic and may require you to experiment with different ingredients and go beyond your typical boundaries a little, while some are down home themes so traditional they’re like being back at your grandma’s house,” he said.
The What’s Cookin’ site was live on The News’ website, just in time for the holidays, but there are a number of recipes and cooking techniques available for any occasion. Holman said it’s perfect for folks getting together for something as big as a Super Bowl party, or just for those who want to try a different meal after church on Sunday.
“Anyone who entertains for the Super Bowl, whether it’s a large crowd or just a few friends and family will love this website. There are lots of great ideas that I can’t wait to try,” added Holman. “How many of us growing up were accustomed to sitting down to a traditional meal on Sunday afternoon? This website can help bring that kind of feeling back into your home as well.”
