Game Day Eats at New Hood Cooking Channel

Celebrity Chef Michele Ragussis Showcases Great Recipes and Tips

LYNNFIELD, MA--(Marketwire - Jan 31, 2013) - Hood®, New England's leading dairy company, announces the launch of their Hood Cooking Channel on YouTube. The Channel is launching with brand new recipes and instructional videos starring Food Network Star Season 8 finalist, Michele Ragussis.

The "Cooking with HP Hood" Channel will offer fun and informative recipes and videos that demonstrate how Hood Sour Cream makes everyday meals more exciting. The videos also show how anyone can cook like a pro and have fun in the kitchen. The recipes featuring Hood Sour Cream are perfect for the Big Game, or anytime friends and family come together. The following recipes can be found on HoodSourCream.com and on the Cooking Channel:

1. Lamb Sliders with Tzatziki Sour Cream Sauce

2. Chili Empanadas

"I wanted to make recipes that showcase what I consider an underdog ingredient -- Sour Cream. Unlike other products, Sour Cream brings a lightness and tanginess to recipes that make them really stand out," said Celebrity Chef Michele Ragussis. "I grew up in New England so Hood has always been my 'go to' dairy product in all of my recipes. If you use great products, it just makes cooking easier."

Ongoing recipes and instructional videos from Michele will be featured throughout the year. For more recipe ideas visit HoodSourCream.com.
