Have you had a chance to pick up your copy of The Gourmet Food Storage Handbook yet? Written and compiled by Stephanie Petersen, or as our Honeyville followers have come to know her, Chef Tess Bakeresse, this handbook is the perfect guide on how to transform your food storage into delicious, shelf stable meals and recipes that the whole family will enjoy!

In anticipation of her upcoming book signing at our Chandler, AZ store, Chef Tess herself has sent over one of her favorite recipes to give our taste buds a peak of what can be found in this all new cookbook. Here is what the Bakeresse herself had to say about this recipe: “I think the ultimate sweet and savory combination has got to be sausage and corn. The first time I tasted Honeyville Freeze Dried Corn, I was transported by its sweet flavor, in my mind, to my childhood. Dad would grow corn in the family garden, and many times I could be found hiding in the tall stalks, sitting in the dirt, with my cute little girl hands wrapped around a freshly shucked corn cob. I loved that sweet flavor.”

Try this recipe for yourself, then stop by our Chandler, AZ store Saturday, Jan. 26th from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. and get a signed copy from Chef Tess Bakeresse herself!
