My 2016 will begin in sunny California. Virtually, of course.
Ally Phillips from Ally’s Kitchen invited a few of us to participate in the first Food Blogger Blast as part of the 2016 Tournament of Roses Parade, and I was happy to serve up Peach Bellinis for the celebration.
The big party is part of Ally’s two-day live cooking demonstration, during which she’ll be whipping up delicious recipes using products from Dole Packaged Foods at Live on Green, a free event in Pasadena sponsored in part by Dole. It all leads up to the legendary Tournament of Roses Parade, where Dole’s float Soaring Over Paradise explores the world’s rain forests. The float features four waterfalls, a zip line that travels through the rain forest canopy and a flock of Macaws that appear to take flight over the floral gardens.
Meanwhile, if you end up with sun envy while watching the big parade, consider whipping up a quick batch of these Peach Bellinis. It’s a Dole recipe and it tastes just like summer.
