The rich seasonings of this starter… are so delicious and so easy to use with a slow cooker. Unique coriander herbs seep effortlessly into beef or fowl and deliver a sensational aromatic flavor; just pour over a chuck roast in your slow cooker, and when done, serve with rice!

From Squidoo.com/Moroccan Cooking, “Tagine [prounounced 'tuh-jheen'] cooking is very straightforward, and uses a minimal amount of water to stew the food inside. The food that you place inside the Tagine will need to be cooked for several hours, with the lid firmly closed.

You will need to season your Tagine before you use it for the first time and, once completed, it is ready to cook your food.

There are hundreds of different stews which can be cooked in the Tagine; however, they all take several hours to cook in a low preheated oven.

You will need to layer the ingredients in the Tagine, and place a small amount of liquid to create the sauce. Never attempt to speed the cooking process up by increasing the temperature of the oven.

Patience is essential when learning how to cook with a Tagine, and there are several cheaper cuts of meat which can be used with fantastic results. You should leave the lid on the Tagine until you are ready to serve, and many people serve the meal directly from the Tagine.”

We recently came across a beautiful website that caught our eyes, in the form of Edible Style, a business owned and operated by food stylist, Wendy Blasdel, Hollywood, Ca. After reading with much interest, we approached Wendy via an email, asking her if she would be interested in trying our sauces and if she thought there would be a place for them on her TV show schedule. After all, she’s done food styling since 1983 for so many wonderful TV shows and movies, to mention a few, The Thornbirds, Christmas Vacation, Mountain Man, Designing Women, Joe vs. The Volcano,  Dances With Wolves, City Slickers, Jurassic Park, Twilight, Star Trek [pilot and series], Grey’s Anatomy, Law & Order, Dynasty, Falcon Crest, Doogie Howser, Frasier, Cheers,and many more.

When she agreed, we were thrilled, so we began the process of deciding what to send  that would best fit the dishes needed for her schedule. We sent some of our best-sellers and we were very pleased with what she did with them! She used our Mango Ginger Habanero Sauce and Salsa a La Charra  in a recipe for “Grilled chicken and veggie Tostada with Mango Ginger Habanero Sauce and Salsa a la Charra.” (Please click on the “read more” link on her blog to see the recipe).

Not only does Wendy do food styling for Hollywood, but she is also a premiere Catering/Event Planner, offering “the full complement of Party and Event Planning, Classes in Culinary Arts as well as Food Presentation for entertaining at home.” On top of that she recently introduced a new service that encompasses “Spa and Gourmet Food to go.”  What a busy, talented lady!
