Are you always looking for the latest and greatest recipe to impress your holiday guests?

If you’re stuck, don’t worry because Live! Casino & Hotel Executive Chef Ed Evans, who was recently featured on Food Networks show “Chopped”, has you covered!

He will be cooking up his traditional bread pudding this holiday season and if you’re cooking for a crowd this holiday season, you’re in luck because he is sharing his personal favorite bread pudding recipe that is sure to satisfy your guests taste buds.

Chef Ed describes his cooking philosophy as following one’s heart and doing what feels right in the moment. He believes that cooking provides a tour of the world using food to take people anywhere they want to go. Not only does he inspire in the kitchen, but the Baltimore native focuses just as much on giving back to the community. He uses food to foster a passion for cooking for children at a young age, is a proponent of Share Our Strength’s No Kid Hungry campaign and developed Hungry Hands as a way to inspire children to develop a love for cooking.

Once everyone gets their hands on his bread pudding recipe, they will be inspired!

Bread pudding was once considered a frugal dessert, created as a way to use up stale bread. However, this once poor man’s pudding is now being featured on many fine dining menus. Give this classic recipe a try this holiday season.
