Whirlpool Event with Chef Carla Hall

dry rub mix recipe by Chef Carla Hall

On Tuesday night, I went to Rockefeller Plaza for a cocktail reception that was being held by Whirlpool in honor of their contributions to the House Beautiful Kitchen of the Year 2012. While there, I ran into a fellow blogger Jen Singer. It was great to catch up with her. (If you or any parents that you know are parenting with cancer, you must check out her new site, Parenting with Cancer. Jen is such an inspiration!)

Anyway, several of the new Whirlpool Kitchen Collections’ appliances are featured in this year’s House Beautiful Kitchen of the Year. You can see several of the items demonstrated in the videos that I shot of Chef Carla Hall preparing an (easy to make!) pork dry rub and BBQ sauce recipes. Chef Hall is both talented and funny. I learned a lot, laughed and ate great food…the most excellent combination!
