WQED’S COOKING MARATHON, ‘QUICK AND EASY’
GOES NATIONAL AS PART OF
THE AMERICA’S HOME COOKING SERIES

PITTSBURGH, PA – WQED Multimedia’s local cooking marathon, “Quick and Easy,”
is now part of WQED’s America’s Home Cooking series and will be available to PBS stations across the country in August 2004. Chris Fennimore and Nancy Polinsky host this national pledge event, which will be taped in the WQED studios and broadcast locally on Saturday, April 24 at 10 a.m. on WQED tv13.

To paraphrase a famous adage: Everyone wants to eat but nobody wants to spend hours in the kitchen cooking. The “Quick and Easy” cookbook contains over 100 recipes that take only a few minutes to put together and contain 7 ingredients or less.

“This is the perfect cookbook and program for viewers who don’t have a lot of time to spend in the kitchen or in the supermarket, said Fennimore. “And the big surprise is that you can end up with absolutely delicious recipes! Quick, easy and delicious - you don’t have to pick two out of three.”

Some of the recipes demonstrated in the WQED kitchen, and listed in the “Quick and Easy” cookbook include a Reuben casserole, pasta with peas, blintzes made in a loaf pan, and a savory chicken and rice dish.

WQED Multimedia, celebrating its 50th anniversary in 2004, provides educational, cultural and informational products and services that enhance and engage the community. It is the parent company of WQED tv13, WQED fm89.3, WQEJ fm89.7/Johnstown, a publishing division that includes PITTSBURGH magazine, local and national television and radio productions, www.wqed.org and the WQED Education Resource Center.
