Food Paradise at World Food Championships

 

World Food ChampionshipOrange Beach, AL – When I arrived at the World Food Championships, I had no idea what this was all about. I had to “bone up” on the sport of competitive cooking so I could cover it properly.

I’ve covered everything from baseball to golf, football to basketball, but I’ve never been up close and personal with this type of event, and let me just say..

It. Is. Awesome!

Publix is Definitely a Food Wonderland

 

Clarksville, TN – I walked into the new Publix store on Madison Street on Saturday morning and felt like I had entered a wonderland of food. Everywhere I looked was a colorful display of items I’d love to take home with me.

As Ashley Jones, a customer in the store expressed her feelings, “I’ve never been here before and I’m already in love! The vegetarian and international sections are fabulous. I’m a vegan so Walmart isn’t really my friend!”

As you enter the store, the first area you see is the florist. Bouquets of cut flowers, pots of blossoming tulips and hydrangeas, arrangements of everything from roses to chrysanthemums! Fragrant flowers to start your day with pleasure were everywhere. Reasonable prices like a pot of tulips for $5.99 suited my wallet and my sense of cheer at the thought of Spring just around the corner.
