GAITHERSBURG, Md., May 21, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Sodexo, a leader in delivering sustainable, integrated facilities management and foodservice operations, has partnered with music superstar and best‑selling cookbook author Trisha Yearwood for its In My Kitchen culinary series. Recipes by Yearwood, who also hosts "Trisha's Southern Kitchen" on Food Network, will be featured at Sodexo‑operated locations across North America.
The partnership runs at cafes in a variety of settings including business & industry locations, colleges and universities, and healthcare facilities. In My Kitchen, which features on-trend recipes from celebrity chefs and Sodexo's top in-house culinary talent, provides a glimpse inside each chef's personal kitchens, inspiration and cooking styles.
Yearwood's Orange-Glazed Pork Medallions recipe is currently being offered through In My Kitchen as part of Sodexo's "Taste of..." in-cafe promotions. Her Chicken Spinach "Lasagne" was featured earlier in the promotional campaign. Sodexo has also served Yearwood's popular Monkey Bread Muffins at Jazzman's Cafe & Bakery locations nationally. All the recipes Sodexo is featuring are found in her cookbook, Home Cooking with Trisha Yearwood.
"In My Kitchen is all about highlighting Sodexo's wealth of culinary talent and the amazing chefs we partner with to provide our guests with memorable dining experiences," said John Wright, vice president for Sodexo's Offer Development Center. "We instantly fell in love with Trisha's exciting new twist on Southern home cooking and are thrilled to be able to share her recipes through our program."
In addition to the recipes currently offered, Sodexo will feature signature Yearwood recipes in both its upcoming summer and fall promotions series.
About Trisha Yearwood
One of the highest-selling female artists in country music history, a New York Times best-selling cookbook author, and now a Food Network star, Trisha Yearwood has a habit of surpassing expectations. Since her 1991 debut, Yearwood has recorded 12 albums and achieved a hit list of nine #1 hits and 20 Top Ten hits under her belt, including "She's in Love With the Boy," "Walkaway Joe" and "How Do I Live."
In an unexpected twist, Trisha turned her favorite hobby into a family project with a cookbook series that combines Yearwood family anecdotes and recipes. In 2008, she released Georgia Cooking in an Oklahoma Kitchen and, in 2010, Home Cooking with Trisha Yearwood, both of which debuted on the New York Times best-seller list. The success of the books led to her Food Network show, Trisha's Southern Kitchen which debuted in April 2012, won a 2013 Daytime Emmy for Outstanding Culinary Program and is now in its fourth season.
In addition to three Grammy Awards, the Grand Ole Opry member has won three Country Music Awards and two Academy of Country Music Awards.
