RVCS team began full time RV adventure in Portland 11+ years ago
After launching their "Operation Sunshine" full time RV adventure in 2000, the RV Cooking Show is returning to the Rose City to headline the 2011 Portland Fall RV & Van Show September 15-18 with four RV-centric topics and dishes to match. Producer and host Evanne Schmarder will host live RV Cooking Show sessions designed to educate and entertain RVers and campers of all experience levels. Examining topics including Getting There, Staying Smart, Free Fun and Preserving Memories, Schmarder will share pearls of wisdom picked up along the way — interacting with her hometown audience — as well as prepare several simple dishes to delight the entire family.
"11 years ago my husband and I – living in a Jantzen Beach houseboat across the Columbia River from the Expo Center – attended the Portland RV & Van Show, picked up our first road atlas and began planning in earnest to go full time RVing. When John Collette called asking if we'd return to present what we'd learned over the years and host a live version of our online RV TV series RV Cooking Show we were delighted. We've created each one of the sessions to deliver maximum RV know-how...an RV travel guide with a cooking class on wheels twist. Love to travel? Love to eat? We can't wait to meet you!" remarked Schmarder.
Portland show producer Collette added, "We are excited to have Evanne's RV Cooking Show at our 28th Annual Portland Fall RV & Van Show. We've designed an RV site show set to make Evanne feel right at home — complete with a big, beautiful ‘green’ RV, well-equipped outdoor RV kitchen, grill, picnic table, chairs and more. Show attendees have told us again and again how much they enjoy learning about the lifestyle and creating delicious RV-easy dishes. Evanne will make them feel right at home...on the road."
The RV Cooking Show schedule, session details, media announcements and sponsor information will be released in the very near future.
