Dining at Tchoup Chop the Night Before the Pillsbury Bake-Off

Last Sunday, I flew to Orlando, Florida to take part in the 45th Pillsbury Bake Off contest.  If you watch my television show, then you know that we were there at the event and I announced the winner live on TV.  Tomorrow’s blog will be all about that, but for now, I’d like to focus on the media dinner held the night before at Emeril’s Tchoup Chop (pronounced Chop Chop) at the Royal Pacific Hotel at Universal, which serves a menu of Asian and Polynesian influences.  My team and I were joined by other members of the media and a few Pillsbury executives for a preview of my newest book, Martha’s American Food: A Celebration of Our Nation’s Most Treasured Dishes, From Coast to Coast, published by Clarkson-Potter and due out on April 24th.
