Pampered Chef: Is it unethical?

    To count a holiday fair as a cooking show if I made cookies before the fair and brought them there? I told them I made the cookies with the press but didn't actually make them there. I spent about $15 on the ingredients and then passed them out as free samples. I don't want to do anything unethical. I sold $300 and was going to put it under my name. It's the difference between $25 of free stuff or $40.

    You cooked. You showed. Ergo, it's a cooking show.

    Seriously, you spent money on ingredients and went to the effort to produce a product to be consumed, so you should be able to count it as a show. A catalog show does not involve purchasing ingredients to be prepared, that's why the FPV is $15 less.

    I usually make food for my shows ahead of time and take it.

    One thing I want to caution you about. In many states it is a violation of health codes to make something in a private, home kitchen and distribute it to the public at something like an expo or fair. You might want to check on the rules in your state.
