HUBWIDE — Chef Sarah Adams, co-founder of The Bad Bitches and former FIG sous chef, will launch a series of live, online cooking demonstrations geared toward interaction between her and the viewers. How it works: would-be home cooks buy a $25 ticket and receive an email with a shopping list, recipe, wine pairings, and a list of kitchen items needed. On Thursday, October 19, ticket-holders log in from a computer, iPad, or phone to cook along with Adams. “I'll be able to answer questions along the way and toggle seeing users on my side of the screen with the help of AndMe TV,” said Adams. The first dish will be a pan-roasted chicken grain bowl with mushrooms, pecans, apple, kale, and butternut squash. Sign up online to join. [EaterWire]
