First Cooking Show this weekend!

Dec 7, 2012

I became a consultant last week. My first cooking show is this weekend. I have yet to make any sales (I have one cooking show on the calendar and a catalog show for a friend so here's hoping). I'm also trying to get some Christmas orders in this week.

I was thinking of the tomato basil square recipe. I just got the mini kit (I'm on a budget and already had several of the large kit items... thought I'd save the money and choose a PC item I wanted instead).

Tips? Advice? I'm super nervous. I'm younger (just turned 30) and doing a show for a friend's mom and her friends who have been cooking longer than I've been alive.

My best advice would be to have fun! I am the same age as you and have also struggled with getting started. Also - the thing that gets you bookings is to ask! Ask everyone you know to book a party - make it sound fun but if you don't ask they can't say yes! As far as the show introduce yourself and let them know this is your first show - ask for feedback at the end of things that they liked or didn't like. Sometimes when I do shows for women much older than me I will hold up a utensil and ask them what it's for or ask how many people have the product if it's a popular one. Good luck and remember to smile and have fun!

Be sure they know it is your first show and guaranteed, they will want to help you, and they will think you are wonderful. That is how my first show went. Be sure to practice the recipe at home. I would ask someone to be your "helper" and read the recipe directions for you as you go along. I usually have the guests go around the room and introduce themselves and say which PC item is their favorite--they will sell to the other guests--ask them what they use it for, also.

Relax and have fun. Be sure to ask for bookings so you can meet people outside of your circle quickly, which is the key to your business. You'll find people like to "help" you out, especially your mom's friends. Good luck!!
