Cooking with Global Chefs on this Month’s Google+ Hangout

Yesterday we conducted November’s Food Revolution Community Hangout and focused entirely on chefs around their world giving their tips and tricks for holiday cooking.

We had such a blast during the hangout and want to share our amazing team of chefs and our favorite moments with you. To get in the holiday spirit, a snowman even makes an appearance in the hangout. Keep an eye out!

Here are some of our favorite moments during the holiday hangout. If you want to share your favorite moment, let us know here!
