A Sweet & Vicious Valentine's Cooking Class with Libbie Summers

To all my lovebirds who are still trying to figure out what to do for Valentine's day, here's a local event you might like. They say the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach so our friend and cookbook author Libbie Summers will be hosting a cooking class inspired by her second cookbook: Sweet & Vicious—baking with attitude at Cook’s Warehouse on Wednesday, February 4th to show you how to put love back into your food!

Sweet & Vicious: Baking with Attitude is an interactive and entertaining cookbook filled with inventive recipes for baking that deliver a punch. And, award-winning author Libbie Summers is not your run-of-the-mill cook; she has an insatiable curiosity and a no-holds-barred approach to baking outside the box with crazy-brilliant combinations and loads of personality. Bring a sense of adventure into the kitchen and to your Valentine’s celebration this year. Grab a few fun-loving girlfriends and make a night of it. Libbie will help you to take your sweet nothings up a notch, and give you more than your share of entertainment, as she demonstrates:

• Hot and Heavy Baby Cakes with Kiss Me Frosting (Candy-spiced Vanilla Cake with Cinnamon Candy Frosting) – Libbie will show you how to decorate these in lots of fun and inventive ways!
• Wahini Pie (Macadamia Nut Pie with a Valentine’s inspired pie crust)
• Tattoo Cookies (we’ll have the cookies ready, you get to tattoo your own designs and take them home)
We’ll have copies of Sweet & Vicious as well as Libbie’s other cookbooks available for purchase. Have your copies personalized and signed by Libbie after class.

Libbie has been featured in Better Homes & Gardens, Southern Living and recently seen on the OWN Show, Camille Styles and Glitter Guide. Her YouTube Channel includes unique and entertaining videos including 20 Creative Pie Crimps in 120 Seconds, which recently won an IACP Award for Single Focused Food Film. She is an experienced, entertaining and inspiring on-air guest who has played hostess to countless corporate, charitable and industry events.

She maintains her body and body of work are both food inspired.
