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."
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.
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 ).

The Internet of Things is clearly many things: data collection and analytics, wearables, Smart Grids and Smart Cities, the Industrial Internet, and more. Cool platforms like Arduino, Raspberry Pi, Intel's Galileo and Edison, and a diverse world of sensors are making the IoT a great toy box for developers in all these areas. In this Power Panel at @ThingsExpo, moderated by Conference Chair Roger Strukhoff, panelists discussed what things are the most important, which will have the most profound effect on the world, and what should we expect to see over the next couple of years.

I recently attended and was a speaker at the 4th International Internet of @ThingsExpo at the Santa Clara Convention Center. I also had the opportunity to attend this event last year and I wrote a blog from that show talking about how the “Enterprise Impact of IoT” was a key theme of last year’s show. I was curious to see if the same theme would still resonate 365 days later and what, if any, changes I would see in the content presented.

Apps and devices shouldn't stop working when there's limited or no network connectivity. Learn how to bring data stored in a cloud database to the edge of the network (and back again) whenever an Internet connection is available. In his session at 17th Cloud Expo, Ben Perlmutter, a Sales Engineer with IBM Cloudant, demonstrated techniques for replicating cloud databases with devices in order to build offline-first mobile or Internet of Things (IoT) apps that can provide a better, faster user experience, both offline and online. The focus of this talk was on IBM Cloudant, Apache CouchDB, and ...

Microservices are a very exciting architectural approach that many organizations are looking to as a way to accelerate innovation. Microservices promise to allow teams to move away from monolithic "ball of mud" systems, but the reality is that, in the vast majority of organizations, different projects and technologies will continue to be developed at different speeds. How to handle the dependencies between these disparate systems with different iteration cycles? Consider the "canoncial problem" in this scenario: microservice A (releases daily) depends on a couple of additions to backend B (re...

With all the incredible momentum behind the Internet of Things (IoT) industry, it is easy to forget that not a single CEO wakes up and wonders if “my IoT is broken.” What they wonder is if they are making the right decisions to do all they can to increase revenue, decrease costs, and improve customer experience – effectively the same challenges they have always had in growing their business. The exciting thing about the IoT industry is now these decisions can be better, faster, and smarter. Now all corporate assets – people, objects, and spaces – can share information about themselves and thei...

Two weeks ago (November 3-5), I attended the Cloud Expo Silicon Valley as a speaker, where I presented on the security and privacy due diligence requirements for cloud solutions. Cloud security is a topical issue for every CIO, CISO, and technology buyer. Decision-makers are always looking for insights on how to mitigate the security risks of implementing and using cloud solutions. Based on the presentation topics covered at the conference, as well as the general discussions heard between sessions, I wanted to share some of my observations on emerging trends. As cyber security serves as a fou...

The Internet of Things (IoT) is growing rapidly by extending current technologies, products and networks. By 2020, Cisco estimates there will be 50 billion connected devices. Gartner has forecast revenues of over $300 billion, just to IoT suppliers. Now is the time to figure out how you’ll make money – not just create innovative products. With hundreds of new products and companies jumping into the IoT fray every month, there’s no shortage of innovation. Despite this, McKinsey/VisionMobile data shows "less than 10 percent of IoT developers are making enough to support a reasonably sized team....

The cloud. Like a comic book superhero, there seems to be no problem it can’t fix or cost it can’t slash. Yet making the transition is not always easy and production environments are still largely on premise. Taking some practical and sensible steps to reduce risk can also help provide a basis for a successful cloud transition. A plethora of surveys from the likes of IDG and Gartner show that more than 70 percent of enterprises have deployed at least one or more cloud application or workload. Yet a closer inspection at the data reveals less than half of these cloud projects involve production...

Cloud computing delivers on-demand resources that provide businesses with flexibility and cost-savings. The challenge in moving workloads to the cloud has been the cost and complexity of ensuring the initial and ongoing security and regulatory (PCI, HIPAA, FFIEC) compliance across private and public clouds. Manual security compliance is slow, prone to human error, and represents over 50% of the cost of managing cloud applications. Determining how to automate cloud security compliance is critical to maintaining positive ROI. Raxak Protect is an automated security compliance SaaS platform and ma...
