Eileen Paul | The Pampered Chef
The Pampered Chef LTD has been the business that changed Eileen’s life. On January 4th 1998, Eileen joined the Pampered Chef to bridge a gap in finances. Twenty-two years later, it is still changing lives, including hers.
Eileen has been a consultant consistently over all these years having almost 2,100 shows – live and on-line. She has been bringing real solutions to family mealtime. As a dietitian, her expertise goes beyond the tools to the nutrition. The emphasis from The Pampered Chef is to meet the needs of the population. Currently on trend are fresh, healthy and fast foods, at home as family meals. The new mission statement for 2017 is “Making Memories One Meal at a Time”. Eating in community is important and at The Pampered Chef it is embraced. Bringing people together to enjoy each other and great food is key.
Working as a Registered Dietitian and going through a budget cut, Eileen was looking for a short-time fix to a need for income. Both boys were at home. Jared 15 in high school and playing basketball – eating them out of house and home. Justin 20 was working but still finding his way and relying on mom and dad for help. Her husband Ben is self-employed and had decided to dabble in art. ANYWAY, the gap needed to be bridged. She loved with process of cooking shows, and eventually the addition of computers to the business changed things even more. Now virtual shows are a popular option.
Using Pampered Chef cooking tools can speed the process of food preparation and make the clean-up easier and faster. Many of the cooking techniques use the microwave for faster food prep. Tools are designed to be used in multiple ways. The Rockcrok line has six different shapes. These go from the Stovetop to oven, microwave, broiler, grill, and dishwasher. Pick a shape to start your experience and come back for more.
Almost all the Pampered Chef tools go into the dishwasher. When the clean-up is easier the cooking is less of a burden.
Another great part of the Pampered Chef line is the Pantry. Most people under season their food. Eileen offers seasoning suggestions for using multiple pantry rubs and seasoning for the best taste with the least additives. The freeze-dried herbs retain flavor and have little or no salt or sugar added. The flavored oils and vinegar add to the great flavors in marinades, salad dressings and slow cooker meals.
Eileen would love to give you a quick simple recipe to try using the Rockcrok Dutch Oven or Stoneware Deep Covered Baker.
