Touchdown! The Snapware® Brand and Emeril Lagasse Team Up to Make Party Planning a Snap Snapware Brand Facebook Fans Get Organized in the Kitchen to Win a Trip to Emeril's Favorite Destination for the Big Game
ROSEMONT, Ill., Dec. 14, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- The Snapware® brand today announced a collaboration with Chef Emeril Lagasse to bring order to kitchen chaos with Emeril® by Snapware® via multichannel retailer HSN. To celebrate National Organization Month and football's biggest game day, the Get Organized and Get to the Big Game Sweepstakes delivers solutions, recipes and a chance for one fan to visit New Orleans to watch every snap of the big game February 3, 2013.
"Party prep makes all the difference when entertaining. Using Snapware containers makes advanced prep a whole lot easier – these simple solutions allow you to enjoy more time with guests," said Lagasse. "I use these products at home and in my kitchens and, together with Snapware, we're bringing one lucky Facebook fan to New Orleans to enjoy a meal at my restaurant and cheer on their team in the Superdome."
A recent survey found the majority of Americans feel their home is cluttered or unorganized (53 percent*) and those who "like" the Snapware brand Facebook page between now and January 13, 2013, can access exclusive entertaining and organization tips and Nawlins'-inspired recipes from Chef Lagasse. Fans are encouraged to enter the Get Organized and Get to the Big Game Sweepstakes daily for the chance to win airfare and accommodations to New Orleans as well as a night at Lagasse's restaurant and tickets to the big game February 3, 2013.
For the seven in ten Americans* feeling the pressures of hosting this year, the following are Lagasse's tips for touchdowns at home:
- Keep it simple by prepping ingredients before the first snap of the game
- Spices and veggies can add a special hometown flare
- Color coordinate meals in storage containers – e.g., red lids for gumbo, green for wings
- Use leak- and spill-proof Snapware food storage containers to avoid kitchen penalties
- Look for stackable items that allow for easy storage within reach
