Cooking on the Road With Celebrity Chefs; Introducing Gourmet Meals for the RV Kitchen!

Cooking on the Road With Celebrity Chefs; Introducing Gourmet Meals for the RV Kitchen!

VENTURA, Calif., April 7 /PRNewswire/ -- If your idea of cooking on the road is heating hot dogs and beans in a pot over an open fire or scrambling eggs on the cook top of your RV, you need to get the latest one-of-a-kind cookbook designed exclusively for RVers and campers looking for recipes to enjoy while on the road. Cooking on the Road with Celebrity Chefs, was created for adventurous food enthusiasts.

Woodall Publications Corporation (Woodall's) teamed up with Anne de Ravel, an independent writer, producer and cookbook author specializing in lifestyle, culinary trends and cooking. For this cookbook, de Ravel has assembled a collection of recipes from some of the top chefs in the country adapted to cooking on the road or in a small kitchen.

"It's a perfect match," said Joe Daquino, publisher for Woodall's. "Woodall's specialty is the design of print publications to reach different segments of the RV and camping consumer marketplace. When combined with Anne's culinary skills, experience as a food television producer and national journalist we created this one-of-kind cookbook."

"One of the things we discovered is that many people know very little about cooking or even how to prepare for a meal at home, let alone on the road," said Daquino. "This cookbook is packed with great recipes, cooking and preparation tips. It makes gourmet cooking easy to understand because it has to be broken down into components that travel well. Our editor made it a lot of fun to read whether you travel over the road or stay at home to cook."

Camp Food

The cookbook highlights 22 chefs around the country who offer their own personal recipes from soups, salads, one-pot stews, delicious desserts and breakfasts for the whole family. Cooking on the Road with Celebrity Chefs features recipes you won't find in any other RV or camping cookbook, ranging from contemporary flavors to updated regional classics, reflecting greater diversity in RV cooking without requiring top-notch culinary skills.

Sidebars and tips include short cuts and variations for the recipes, how to prepare and store foods and perishables for an RV trip, and serving suggestions. In addition, anecdotes and personal camping stories from these famous chefs make this cookbook an enjoyable read.

Roadside Entertaining

The RV cookbook features some of the best chefs in the country, from TV personality Chef Harry who cruises in his "rock & roll" bus, to Melissa Perello, executive chef at Fifth Floor restaurant (San Francisco). The chefs' unique personalities and style in the kitchen and on the road along with how they cope with limited equipment make the cookbook an entertaining read. Readers peek into the chefs' lives while learning some great tricks of the trade along the way.

A few of the 22 celebrity chefs included are: * Charlie Palmer, (Chef/owner Aureole and CP Steak among others), * Laurent Tourondel (Chef/owner BLT Steak and BLT Fish Restaurants in New York City), * Chef Harry (featured on the Shop at Home Network and creator and star of Chef Harry and Friends syndicated television show), * Zak Pelaccio (chef 5 Ninth and Fatty Crab in New York City), * Jimmy Bannos (chef/owner Heaven on Seven Restaurants in Chicago, IL) and many more!

Whether you are meandering North America's highways full-timing in your RV, or enjoying short vacations and weekend getaways, you'll find Cooking on the Road with Celebrity Chefs engaging and most delicious!

Cooking on the Road with Celebrity Chefs will appear in bookstores in early May. The retail price is $19.95. The RV cookbook can purchased on http://www.woodalls.com/ (http://www.woodalls.com/shop/display.cfm?productID=DWCEL0&categoryID=&de... 0 ).

Sensor-enabled things are becoming more commonplace, precursors to a larger and more complex framework that most consider the ultimate promise of the IoT: things connecting, interacting, sharing, storing, and over time perhaps learning and predicting based on habits, behaviors, location, preferences, purchases and more. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Tom Wesselman, Director of Communications Ecosystem Architecture at Plantronics, will examine the still nascent IoT as it is coalescing, including what it is today, what it might ultimately be, the role of wearable tech, and technology gaps stil...
With several hundred implementations of IoT-enabled solutions in the past 12 months alone, this session will focus on experience over the art of the possible. Many can only imagine the most advanced telematics platform ever deployed, supporting millions of customers, producing tens of thousands events or GBs per trip, and hundreds of TBs per month. With the ability to support a billion sensor events per second, over 30PB of warm data for analytics, and hundreds of PBs for an data analytics archive, in his session at @ThingsExpo, Jim Kaskade, Vice President and General Manager, Big Data & Ana...
As organizations shift toward IT-as-a-service models, the need for managing and protecting data residing across physical, virtual, and now cloud environments grows with it. CommVault can ensure protection &E-Discovery of your data – whether in a private cloud, a Service Provider delivered public cloud, or a hybrid cloud environment – across the heterogeneous enterprise. In his session at 16th Cloud Expo, Randy De Meno, Chief Technologist - Windows Products and Microsoft Partnerships, will discuss how to cut costs, scale easily, and unleash insight with CommVault Simpana software, the only si...
In the consumer IoT, everything is new, and the IT world of bits and bytes holds sway. But industrial and commercial realms encompass operational technology (OT) that has been around for 25 or 50 years. This grittier, pre-IP, more hands-on world has much to gain from Industrial IoT (IIoT) applications and principles. But adding sensors and wireless connectivity won’t work in environments that demand unwavering reliability and performance. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Ron Sege, CEO of Echelon, will discuss how as enterprise IT embraces other IoT-related technology trends, enterprises with i...
When it comes to the Internet of Things, hooking up will get you only so far. If you want customers to commit, you need to go beyond simply connecting products. You need to use the devices themselves to transform how you engage with every customer and how you manage the entire product lifecycle. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Sean Lorenz, Technical Product Manager for Xively at LogMeIn, will show how “product relationship management” can help you leverage your connected devices and the data they generate about customer usage and product performance to deliver extremely compelling and reliabl...
The Internet of Things (IoT) is causing data centers to become radically decentralized and atomized within a new paradigm known as “fog computing.” To support IoT applications, such as connected cars and smart grids, data centers' core functions will be decentralized out to the network's edges and endpoints (aka “fogs”). As this trend takes hold, Big Data analytics platforms will focus on high-volume log analysis (aka “logs”) and rely heavily on cognitive-computing algorithms (aka “cogs”) to make sense of it all.
Hadoop as a Service (as offered by handful of niche vendors now) is a cloud computing solution that makes medium and large-scale data processing accessible, easy, fast and inexpensive. In his session at Big Data Expo, Kumar Ramamurthy, Vice President and Chief Technologist, EIM & Big Data, at Virtusa, will discuss how this is achieved by eliminating the operational challenges of running Hadoop, so one can focus on business growth. The fragmented Hadoop distribution world and various PaaS solutions that provide a Hadoop flavor either make choices for customers very flexible in the name of opti...

The Workspace-as-a-Service (WaaS) market will grow to $6.4B by 2018. In his session at 16th Cloud Expo, Seth Bostock, CEO of IndependenceIT, will begin by walking the audience through the evolution of Workspace as-a-Service, where it is now vs. where it going. To look beyond the desktop we must understand exactly what WaaS is, who the users are, and where it is going in the future. IT departments, ISVs and service providers must look to workflow and automation capabilities to adapt to growing demand and the rapidly changing workspace model.
One of the biggest impacts of the Internet of Things is and will continue to be on data; specifically data volume, management and usage. Companies are scrambling to adapt to this new and unpredictable data reality with legacy infrastructure that cannot handle the speed and volume of data. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Don DeLoach, CEO and president of Infobright, will discuss how companies need to rethink their data infrastructure to participate in the IoT, including: Data storage: Understanding the kinds of data: structured, unstructured, big/small? Analytics: What kinds and how responsiv...
Since 2008 and for the first time in history, more than half of humans live in urban areas, urging cities to become “smart.” Today, cities can leverage the wide availability of smartphones combined with new technologies such as Beacons or NFC to connect their urban furniture and environment to create citizen-first services that improve transportation, way-finding and information delivery. In her session at @ThingsExpo, Laetitia Gazel-Anthoine, CEO of Connecthings, will focus on successful use cases.

The true value of the Internet of Things (IoT) lies not just in the data, but through the services that protect the data, perform the analysis and present findings in a usable way. With many IoT elements rooted in traditional IT components, Big Data and IoT isn’t just a play for enterprise. In fact, the IoT presents SMBs with the prospect of launching entirely new activities and exploring innovative areas. CompTIA research identifies several areas where IoT is expected to have the greatest impact.
Wearable devices have come of age. The primary applications of wearables so far have been "the Quantified Self" or the tracking of one's fitness and health status. We propose the evolution of wearables into social and emotional communication devices. Our BE(tm) sensor uses light to visualize the skin conductance response. Our sensors are very inexpensive and can be massively distributed to audiences or groups of any size, in order to gauge reactions to performances, video, or any kind of presentation. In her session at @ThingsExpo, Jocelyn Scheirer, CEO & Founder of Bionolux, will discuss ho...
Cloud data governance was previously an avoided function when cloud deployments were relatively small. With the rapid adoption in public cloud – both rogue and sanctioned, it’s not uncommon to find regulated data dumped into public cloud and unprotected. This is why enterprises and cloud providers alike need to embrace a cloud data governance function and map policies, processes and technology controls accordingly. In her session at 15th Cloud Expo, Evelyn de Souza, Data Privacy and Compliance Strategy Leader at Cisco Systems, will focus on how to set up a cloud data governance program and s...

The industrial software market has treated data with the mentality of “collect everything now, worry about how to use it later.” We now find ourselves buried in data, with the pervasive connectivity of the (Industrial) Internet of Things only piling on more numbers. There’s too much data and not enough information. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Bob Gates, Global Marketing Director, GE’s Intelligent Platforms business, to discuss how realizing the power of IoT, software developers are now focused on understanding how industrial data can create intelligence for industrial operations.
