    So Sat March 28th after my pampered chef party we will be walking over to The Washington Tavern to celebrate Victors 21st birthday. everyone is invited (victor wants to look like he has a lot of friends). so the party should only be about an hour or so, so we should be going over around 6:30/7 pm. I hope everyone can make it

    So I just got this email from my cooking show host. I will email her back making sure she realizes I do have to pack up my stuff. I do know most of her guests somewhat. (we all work for same company just different branches) This has me nervous that everyone will just be waiting for everything to be done and effect my checkout time????? Any help or advice would be appreciated. She sent this to me I believe to include me in being invited to the bar, but my concern is going to be packing up my stuff as I wouldn't stay out too late anyway. I can't keep up with these youngins any more!:) So I do want to accomadate them, but don't want to end up losing sales or attention during the show!!! TIA

    Why not make the recipe ahead of time have it in the oven as they come in , do you show telling them what you did ect then just do the 8 min micro cake in front of them. that can be it then check them out they can eat , have fun and you can go

    I would call her to talk about it. Don't email her back--too much can be misunderstood.

    This is not a bad idea though I'll have to talk to host about it. I'll have to figure out a quick demo based on what recipe she chooses to have done ahead. I would want them to compliment eachother.

    Or do a quick interactive show, get the products in their hands. While they are working on the recipe, you can talk about bookings and the business. Then you have time to take orders.

    Sounds like your host is intrested in having fun. I would make the demo simple and get them eating as soon as possible. Maybe you can do a quick game to keep everyone intrested in what you have to say. You can pack up and take orders as them eat and chat. Good luck!
