Straight From The Alexia Farm Part Two
Straight From The Alexia Foods Farm
In late September, we announced a new partnership with Alexia Foods. We’re thrilled to be among a select few food bloggers who get to serve as Alexia Foods brand ambassadors — or Tastemakers, as we are officially known. Part of our continued collaboration with Alexia will include information about new and exciting Alexia products, exclusive giveaways, and of course more of our own original creations featuring Alexia Foods products. In case you missed it, we recently kicked things off with our own version of the Canadian potato favorite–Pork, Fennel and Onion Poutine. Our next Alexia installment, however, takes us out of the kitchen for a change, as we venture over to the farm.

You may have seen our first post announcing participation in Alexia Foods’ Tastemaker Program. Now that we’ve made our way to November, the time has come to share a few of the recipes we’ve made and fun discoveries we’ve stumbled across in the last couple of months.

We are happy to announce another partnership with Alexia Foods! As you may recall, last year we were finalist in their “Reinvent a Classic” french fry contest, where our Herbes de Provence and Garlic Sweet Potato Fries were among the final four flavors selected. This time around, we’re officially “Alexia Tastemakers.” As Tastemakers, we’re one of 10 food bloggers who were chosen to serve as proud ambassadors to the brand. In the months to come, we’ll be sharing some wonderful things with you from our friends at Alexia, from new products and special promotions, to more of our own recipe creations, and more. And of course there will be a giveaway or two, so stay tuned.
Perhaps, though, the most exciting part of this new Tastemaker program is that you have a chance to become a brand influencer yourself. Alexia is looking for 5 more Tastemakers, and these final recruits will be everyday fans. The search is on for additional foodies who are just as passionate about Alexia products and can inspire fellow food enthusiasts. Have an original recipe idea? Know some easy holiday entertaining tips? Or if you’ve just been eager to flex your culinary and entertaining muscles, this is …Continue Reading »
