Cooking with Chef Lynn Crawford & Catelli Healthy Harvest Ancient Grains Giveaway


Last Wednesday I had the incredible opportunity to meet Chef Lynn Crawford! You probably recognize her from Food Network's Chopped Canada or Pitchin In. Last week, Chef Lynn Crawford was out in Western Canada cooking and demoing Catelli's newest line of pastas - Healthy Harvest Ancient Grains.

It was a great night enjoyed by all in Get Cooking's space filled with tasty pasta ideas from Chef Lynn Crawford, canapés from the Get Cooking team, and demos of Catelli's Ancient Grain Pasta from Chef Lynn Crawford. We also had the opportunity to put together a dish using Catelli's pasta ourselves! 

Phyllo pastry with crunchy pear and pear soup (left from Evert), buckwheat noodle with yellow asian pear and a cumin coconut pancake (right from Alexei of S'wich Food Truck). 
The pasta is made with 100% whole grain Canadian wheat and five ancient grains: quinoa, amaranth, millet, sorghum and teff. 

We also learned how cooking times could affect the firmness of the pasta. However, the firmness depends on preferences as well so there can be a lot of variety in cooking times.


One of the exciting parts of the evening was watching Chef Lynn Crawford demonstrate a simple but delicious dish of pesto-dressed spaghettini and marinara rotini with fresh shavings of cheese on top. 

Then all of us food bloggers and the media (after taking photos) cleaned our plates!

After all the demos, we divided into groups to make our own Chilled Noodle Salad with Ginger Wasabi Dressing to take home and of course photograph.

Of course, I had a slight celebrity chef fan-girl moment when I wanted to get a picture with Chef Lynn Crawford. The bonus was when I shared with her that she could use a timer for selfies, she even instagramed our photo!
