IRVING, Texas, Dec. 2 /PRNewswire/ -- Buzz about Nature's Pride® bread is out of the box following the first annual Foodbuzz Blogger Festival - a first-of-its-kind event that brought together America's top food bloggers to network and nosh over good eats and in great company November 6 - 8, 2009 in San Francisco, CA.
So what's the word on the virtual street about the only brand of 100% natural breads available across the country?
"This bread [Nature's Pride] was delicious. So hearty and nutty tasting! It felt like a lot more than 100 calories and it kept me full longer than most other breads..." The Daily Balance Blog.
"I really love Nature's Pride's commitment to natural ingredients, lack of HFCS, and overall health philosophy..." Travel, Eat, Love.
"...[N]ow I can start incorporating more fiber by enjoying these yummy breads with my meals to start eating healthier. And they're not only healthy...but they're really delicious too!" Mission: Food Blog.
Additionally, as part of the Foodbuzz Blogger Festival, Nature's Pride tapped into the creative culinary talents of six blogger attendees - who served as Nature's Pride Bread Ambassadors - to prepare original recipes using Nature's Pride bread for their fellow foodies at an afternoon "Tasting Pavilion." On the Nature's Pride Bread Ambassador menu:
Sabrina from RhodeyGirl Tests made an egg white frittata muffin using Nature's Pride Bread and reported that she channeled "memories standing in the kitchen with [her] mom" to prepare for her cooking demonstration.
Eating Bird Food's healthy living blogger Brittany used Nature's Pride's new Nutty Oat variety, which was launched at the festival, to make her delicious Veggie Stuffed Hummus Sandwich. Brittany sampled Nutty Oat and said, "If you're a fan of hearty sliced bread with a bit of texture you should check it out... it's awesome!"
Brandi from BranAppetit cooked up a delicious Pumpkin-Stuffed French Toast - a perfect complement to the fall harvest theme of the Nature's Pride booth while RavenousCouple took grilled cheese to new heights with a recipe for Fried Halloumi Cheese Toasts. Bread puddings both sweet and savory also took center stage: Shannon of Tri to Cook featured Savory Pumpkin Bread Pudding with chicken sausage and fried sage leaves, and Stephanie from Steph Chows whipped up Peanut Butter and Chocolate Bread Pudding.
And with tastemaker tastebuds still hungry for more, the savvy chefs at legendary LuLu's restaurant served up a fabulous family-style Sunday brunch featuring several Nature's Pride bread recipes with a seasonal flare: Nature's Pride Nutty Oat French Toast with Pear Compote and Whipped Cinnamon Butter, Croque Monsieur with Smoked Ham, Swiss and Truffle Mustard on Nature's Pride 100% Whole Wheat Bread and Panzanella featuring Nature's Pride Country White and Nature's Pride 12 Grain varieties.
