There’s no better way to spice up a Wednesday than with a Special Edition #Foodiechats!
@WinnDixieLatino is all about fresh products to create a fresh life. Hispanics come to this country looking for fresh opportunities and in their search they adopt a new culture, but never lose their own. This results in a fusion of two cultures that creates a new, fresh one!
This year, @WinnDixieLatino celebrates the freshness of the fusion of two cultures and they want to share a handful of new Latin and American fusion recipes, like the exotic Mango Chicken Drumettes and the Guava Ribs; the fun and easy-to-make Corn Pizza; the popular Bacon Croqueta, and the always sweet and tasty Cranberry Churros. Visit www.DosCulturasMuchaFrescura.com for everything you need to know on how to create these yourself!
We had a great time during our Special Edition #Foodiechats. Good thing it was right before lunch time, because it made us SO hungry! It was awesome to see us trend for a Special Edition!
Tweet #Foodiechats with us and tell us your favorite Latin-inspired dish!
So many of our Chicago #Foodiechats friends joined us for the event including @RosieCavero, @NajaLeigh, @MsShanBo and @RMLaCroix, It’s always a blast Tweeting and Eating live with #Foodiechats friends!
We served two delicious recipes using our sponsor @MahatmaRiceUSA's Jasmine and Basmati Rice: Coconut Lime Rice Pudding and Deep Fried Prosciutto and Mozzarella Risotto Balls. They were absolutely delicious! @MahatmaRiceUSA was live with us and talked about how easy it is to create #HomemadeGourmet meals with their rice!
The recipes we created were simple to make, but full of flavor and so yummy, which is why cooking with @MahatmaRiceUSA is so great! @DukeOfYolk did a great job of recreating @MahatmaRiceUSA's recipes.
Nestled alongside the Columbia River in eastern Washington state, @ColumbiaCrest is one of the world’s most highly acclaimed wineries.
For more than 25 years, the winery has maintained its commitment to quality, heritage and innovation in grape growing and winemaking to craft wines that meet the highest expectation, yours!
It was a great night of mingling with social foodies, eating and drinking and of course, learning about our sponsor @MahatmaRiceUSA. Then, it was #Foodiechats time! We always say it’s essential to #EatBeforeYouTweet, so we were thrilled we had so much deliciousness leading up to the chat!
Our theme was #HomemadeGourmet and it was a blast! We loved having @MahatmaRiceUSA as a sponsor.
@MahatmaRiceUSA has been the go-to gourmet rice brand since 1932. Known for consistent high quality, @MahatmaRiceUSA is the preferred brand among many families and foodies because it’s easy to prepare, economical, consistent, versatile and a great complement to any meal.
When cooking @MahatmaRiceUSA Jasmine Rice, your kitchen will be filled with a natural, aromatic scent as it cooks and is best served with authentic, Asian meals. On the other hand, if you’re simply looking to spice up your regular dinnertime routine, Mahatma Jasmine Rice also serves as a delicious replacement for other types of rice you would normally eat in order to create a #HomemadeGourmet meal. All in all, Mahatma Jasmine Rice helps make any meal more enjoyable from start to finish, whether you’re new to the kitchen or have been whipping up delicious dishes for years.
Thank you to our sponsor @MahatmaRiceUSA for a great event and a fabulous night of #Foodiechats. Be sure to visit their website and check out all the delicious recipes they share! You can also keep up with them on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook.
Also, a big thank you to Taki Kastanis (@DukeOfYolk) for hosting #Foodiechats Social Media Week Chicago celebration for the second year in a row!

Since 1827, @BuitoniUSA has been inspiring home cooks with its freshly made pasta & sauces. Winter, Spring, Summer or Fall, there’s no better backdrop for the season’s best produce than freshly made pasta.
@BuitoniUSA believes great meals don’t have to be complicated, pretentious or slaved over. And quick meals don’t have to come from a box. A few fresh ingredients, a little olive oil, a dash of creativity and some freshly made pasta can make for a delicious meal any night of the week. Fresh, simple meals keep life from being stale.
There’s no better comfort food than pasta, so we loved getting to Think Outside the Box with @BuitoniUSA!
As pesto lovers, we loved the question “Raise your hand if you always have pesto on hand! What’s your favorite way to use it?”
Another fun question was “What are your favorite vegetables to pair with freshly made pasta?”
A perfect question for those of us foodies who are always busy was “How do you stay inspired when making dinner on busy weeknights?”
Tweet us at @Foodiechats and tell us your favorite pasta dish to make!
There’s no better cure for a mid-week slump than a Special Edition #Foodiechats. Today 9/10 we celebrated #NationalRiceMonth with our sponsor @EatUSRice. Our theme for the chat was Reach for Rice, and our community loved talking about this staple!
One question during the chat was “Rice is a global staple. Share your family’s favorite rice dish handed down from generation to generation.”
One question we learned a lot during was “What’s your foolproof method for cooking rice?”
We talked leftovers during Question 2, which was “None of us can afford to throw out leftovers. What do you do with leftover rice?”
Tweet us at @Foodiechats and let us know your favorite rice dish!
@MooyahBurger are masters of the burger, perfectors of the French fry, crafters of the shake. They are out to make you the burger of your dreams, and it all starts with the highest-quality ingredients-and lots of ‘em!
Their guests start their made-to-order burger experience by choosing from baked-in-house white or wheat buns, or they make it an Iceburger, our low-carb bun replacement of iceberg lettuce leaves. Next, they have the option of one or two patties of never-frozen, 100-percent American beef, lean turkey or our mouthwatering black-bean veggie patty, all decorated with unlimited veggies, a choice of 12 delectable sauces, five different cheeses, and other savory toppings such as Applewood-smoked bacon and sliced avocado. There is so much deliciousness to choose from!
One great question during #Foodiechats was “If you could only pick 1 – what cheese gets you all hot and melty?”
Another fun question was “There are some exotic options out there. What’s your favorite meat to sink your teeth into?”
We talked burger toppings during question 9! The question was “Go topless? Never! Do you dress your #SoulMeat skimpy or loaded w/ layers?”
Tweet us at @Foodiechats and tell us what your favorite kind of burger is!
Did you know that the Internet now has a vineyard? A premium, award-winning one at that! @ColumbiaCrest recently launched CrowdsourcedCabernet.com where they will help the online community of wine-lovers create the first-ever Crowdsourced™ Cabernet Sauvignon.
Over the next 18 months, the new interactive website, CrowdsourcedCabernet.com, will allow everyone from casual drinkers to wine aficionados join the process of winemaking, and determine how the grapes are tended, irrigated, harvested and blended through weekly votes. Participants will have access to weather analytics, season-by-season data, past data and time-lapse camera shots down to the individual grape.
Learn more about Crowdsourced Cabernet in this video.
One fun question during the chat was “We love a Cabernet paired with cheese. What’s your perfect pairing?”
Another question we loved was “Have you ever used red wine to cook with? Share your dish!”

Monday’s #Foodiechats with sponsor @Quaker was so much fun! Our theme was “The Versatility of Oats” and our community loved exchanging ideas and recipes with each other, in addition to getting new recipe inspiration from @Quaker and its Executive Chef Andrew Moltz!
For more than 135 years, @Quaker has helped nourish families through delicious foods made with the power of whole grain oats. To combat families’ 24/7, fast-paced, turbo-speed lifestyles, @Quaker is encouraging families to start the day right and help them to do what matters most to them.

There’s no better afternoon #Foodiechats pick me up than a chat all about chocolate!

Their unmatched expertise has combined the most refined dark chocolate and finest ingredients into thin shapes. Today, @Lindt_Chocolate is perfecting the art of chocolate & wine, chocolate & tea and even chocolate & life pairings!
One question that made us drool was “White chocolate fans - what about your favorite chocolate pairing?”
Another question we loved was “Unique is exciting, but we do love traditions as well. Which traditional pairing has your vote?”
We loved the question “Finding the finest ingredients is our passion. Which chocolate inclusion could you never live without?”
