Hi friends! Not very often you see pictures of me here but this time I had to share. A few weeks back I got the incredible opportunity to host the Dole Sunshine Latino booth at the Festival People en Español along with mini chef Amaya Baez. It was a super cool experience, one that I want you to join me through these pictures.
As you can see below, I loved being on stage entertaining the crowd. Mainly it was a group of kids and their parents as we were sharing really easy recipes, and ideas on how to use the Dole Sunshine products. I even shared some crafts appropriate for this time of the year, Halloween!
I loved their booth as not only included cooking demonstrations, but it also had a photo booth to take pictures, bean bags to chill, and this fun fruit inspired drawing erase board.
Amaya’s recipes were delicious and included: Pineapple Guacamole, Fruit Ceviche, Bionico Fruit Salada, Dulce Frio, Brazo Gitano and others. Below is a picture of the Bionico which is a Mexican fruit salad with nuts, yogurt and sweet condensed milk. I mean anything tastes delicious when using real fruit from Dole.
I led a few craft sessions where I showed how you can use the actual Dole fruit bowls to make Halloween inspired crafts. See one of the ideas below which only require the use of a marker and a little imagination to write spooky messages, or draw Halloween related faces and decorations.
The Dole Sunshine Latino website has a lot more ideas explained step by step like the cute monster below. They have many more ideas that are perfect for other holidays and year round. Check them out and follow them on Facebook too.
