The Heart of the Kitchen: THE TOOLS 03.11.12 (Special Edition #FNIchat presented by Progressive)
You know you’d be lost without them, and we would too. There’s not a thing the lot of us die-hard foodies could do without the pulsating heart of our kitchens — THE TOOLS.Whether you keep them in that bottomless “everything” drawer, or lined up neatly on the counter, you’ve got strong feelings and colorful anecdotes about every single piece. And so, on this fine Sunday afternoon, we’ll be #FNIchat-ing with two full hours of Twitter-talk dedicated to the tools that make every meal happen.
We’ll be tweeting LIVE from the International Home + Housewares Show (#IHHS12) in Chicago too, the pulsating heart of housewares innovation and design. And we’ll be coming to you on Sunday because of the clever folks at Progressive. They’ve got all sorts of ingenious tools up their sleeves like a brand spankin’ new Flip Grater, a super smart Dressing Shaker, and even a why-didn’t-I-think-of-that? Hanging Prep Colander. Tune into the chat for the scoop on all that’s new for your everything drawer.

How Foodies’ Night In Works:
Late Monday (and sometimes Sundays when we’re at The International Home + Housewares Show) afternoons (4-6pm eastern to be exact) we meet through Twitter. Using the hashtag #FNIchat we greet each other at the virtual door, and get cozy to talk about whatever food-related topic we are featuring that day. Typically the topic will be determined by the weekly sponsor of #FNIchat. We, at Cooking with Caitlin, compile at least ten questions that serve as the framework of the conversation over the two hours of #FNIchat. Then, the hosts throw out each question at pre-determined times throughout #FNIchat. We hope that YOU will join in the fun-filled foodie conversation and share your thoughts, recipes, tips, ask questions…and most certainly make new friends! Can’t wait to *see* you there.
