This coming Wednesday, join us for the #KraftyCooking Live HOA. This is a follow up to our blog post http://www.plusyourbusiness.com/use-google-hangouts-krafty-cooking/ which contains video interviews of all the chefs on the panel. We’ll be talking about how these Chefs have used Hangouts and Hangouts on Air along with their culinary skills to help people learn the joys of cooking.

The event info above shows your local time, but as a reference we start at 1pm EST (New York) on 8-Jan-2014.

We will likely go into some behind the scenes stories as well as how they incorporate some of their own childhood food experiences into their online cooking endeavors. All tied into how they have been Krafty in their Cooking showmanship!

Please invite others to this event to watch and interact with the live show or to view afterwards and help us spread the word on how Google Plus and #KraftyCooking ideas are an incredible combination.
