Pampered Chef: Bookings Catchy lines

    Wondering if anyone has any good catchy lines/jokes they use (in good taste) during their shows? Or even food tips / prep tricks used? From the first minute I thought of doing this I had it set in my mind that having fun was most important (even above sales) because I feel when people have fun, the sales will follow. Plus I hate the stiff, booooring house parties that people dread going to because the consultant is so dry. Just looking for some good ideas that others use and find that works well. Imitation/copying is the highest form of flattery! =)

    I have some ideas but just looking for other insights. (On one of the trainings I loved it when she offered catalog shows for those who do not like their neighbors/friends enough to clean their house for a cooking show party).

    Simple yet uplifting ideas like that - push the product & shows yet find the fun ways to do so.

    Scott - don't take this the wrong way but I love you! OMG, either I am really tired or those lines are really good. The best part is, I can see myself doing all the blunders listed and I cannot wait to use the "here kitty kitty" or "I've been thinking about selling vacuums too" lines because I ultimately drop/spill something all the time in the kitchen. (and I know I don't sell crystal for that reason!)

    Thanks a million!

    That "Adding Humor to your Show" was quite funny! It's almost midnight and I had to stop myself from laughing out loud (rest of house is asleep). :D Some good stuff- and things I could actually REMEMBER! (or I've actually already DONE myself...so it would be statements of truth! That's scary.)

    My favorites:
    * "Food Chopper: "The ‘size of the food reflects your mood’. My husband knows that if I’m chopping and everything looks like baby food, it’s been a bad day and he needs to back off!""
    • When I accidentally drop or 'fling' food when chopping or whatever (and I haven't had a show yet where this didn't happen at least once) I say, "I know this isn't Sea World, but I feel I should warn those sitting up front that you are in my 'splash zone'."
    • When I get something yummy on my fingers: "The hardest part of my job is not licking my fingers when I am cooking for other people!!" (I actually thought about this the other night when cooking! I thought "this is a habit I need to kick before doing a show!")
    • When passing spices for guests to savor aromas: "...but if you sniff so hard you feel the urge to sneeze, please have the courtesy to close the lid first."

    One liners don't usually work well for me - I can't pull them off very well.

    But - here is the best compilation of fun food tips I've found - I use many of these at my shows...and they make me look funny, and smart!:sing:

    I wish I knew who to give credit to, but I don't...I found it on here a while ago...

    Becky,
    I love those tips! I will definitely be using some of those in my own kitchen as well as sharing at my shows!
