94g (3/4 cup) all-purpose flour, spooned and leveled 50g (¼ cup) granulated sugar 50g (¼ cup) light or dark brown sugar 3g (1 tsp) pumpkin pie spice 86g (6 tablespoons) butter, margarine, or plantbased butter, melted

*Produces 600g (about 2.4 cups) liquid, equivalent to about 12 eggs. Store leftover liquid in refrigerated covered container. Use within 2 days.

Prep BAKE Basics liquid: In a food processor, in order, add 558g ice cold water and 42g BAKE Basics powder (non-metric approximate equivalent: 2.25 cups water + 6 Tbsp BAKE Basics). Blend 30 seconds, scrape down, blend another 30 seconds until thick and uniform. For best results, rest refrigerated 20 minutes before use. Prep crumb topping: Whisk the flour, granulated sugar, brown sugar, and pumpkin pie spice together until combined. Using a fork, lightly mix in the melted butter until crumbs form. Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C) Spray a 12-count muffin pan with nonstick spray or line with cupcake liners. Set aside. In a large bowl, whisk the flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, pumpkin pie spice, and salt together. Set aside. In a large bowl using a handheld or stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, the oil, granulated sugar, brown sugar, pumpkin puree, and BAKE basics liquid, until combined. Scrape down the sides and bottom of the bowl as needed. Pour dry ingredients into wet ingredients and beat on low speed until just about combined. Spoon the batter evenly into each cup or liner, filling each all the way to the top. Spoon crumb topping evenly on top of the batter and gently press them down into the batter so they’re snug. Bake the muffins for 25 - 30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Allow the muffins to cool for 5 minutes in the muffin pan, then transfer to a wire rack to continue cooling.

Savor the slightly rich flavor of Vincent, the full-bodied flavor of Frans Hals, Vermeer's delicate fruity flavor, or the sharp taste and delicious texture of Rembrandt. These cheeses are perfect for a cheeseboard as well as enhancing salads, casseroles, and pasta. With people spending more time with family and close friends at home, cheese brands like A Dutch Masterpiece make home celebrations richer and simply more beautiful.

The fifth-largest dairy company globally, Royal FrieslandCampina has been in business for 150 years, is the largest producer of Gouda and Dutch cheese and is one of the largest US importers of specialty cheeses. Its commitment to farmers includes over 17,000 member dairy farmers in the Netherlands, Germany, and Belgium providing the milk and the products from milk, which elevates its flavor and quality. Sustainability is a cornerstone of its business model as FrieslandCampina "nourishes by nature." Their selection of cheeses has satisfied millions of consumers' tastes for celebrations, nutrition, and flavor profiles to add to meals, sides, salads, and snacks. FrieslandCampina offers a rich portfolio of over a dozen cheese brands, including A Dutch Masterpiece, Parrano, and Gayo Azul. A Dutch Masterpiece is a collection of cheeses that is a work of art in a true Dutch tradition. Classic and unique flavors of the four premium mature kinds of cheese have won multiple awards of excellence worldwide with exclusive recipes and commitment to the art of traditional Dutch cheese making.

:;

Vincent is known as Gouda meets Parmesan, a rich, sweet-tasting Dutch cheese with the nuttiness of an Italian cheese that is fully ripened for six months. Frans Hals is a rich aged cheese made with 100% goat's milk to create a unique, full-bodied taste and delicate aroma that is naturally matured up to six months. While made in the same way as Gouda, since it is made with goat's milk and not cow's milk, it is part of the collection, although not an actual Gouda cheese. Vermeer, traditionally ripened for five months, is an award-winning aged Dutch Gouda cheese with a delicate fruity taste and a delightful flavor. Rembrandt, traditionally ripened for one year, is an award-winning extra aged Gouda cheese with a firm texture, a robust flavor, and an exceptional taste. For recipes and pairing suggestions as well as retailers, visit www.adutchmasterpiece.com. Parrano cheese, its Italian-style Dutch collection, features two mouth-watering tastes. Parrano Originale, aged for five months, blends Gouda's smooth, creamy texture with the nutty, buttery flavors of Parmesan. "This cheese is quite approachable," says Debbie Seife, Marketing Director North America, of FrieslandCampina. "Parrano elevates the everyday blend of flavors. Parra-

no is a nice cheese to add to a cheese platter when entertaining. The cheese also pairs well with many different accompaniments, including fig jam, prosciutto, marinated artichokes, and roast peppers. I would recommend serving it with Lager beer or spicy Syrah." Parrano Truffle, aged for 5 months, layers the rich flavors of Italian Black Truffles blending creamy Gouda, nutty Parmesan, and earthy black truffle flavors. Pair it with Kolsch beer or earthy Malbec. Add honey and walnuts or top focaccia bread with a little olive oil and cheese, and the perfect holiday platter will be hit with guests, who will want more. For a list of retail locations and suggestions on how to serve the Parrano collection, visit www.parrano.com. The Gayo Azul collection comes with a rich heritage of a strong Dutch influence that has been a traditional staple for Caribbean Hispanics for decades. The cheese, including Gouda and Edam, gained popularity in the US beginning in Miami and surrounding areas.

Gayo Azul Dutch Gouda is a versatile mild and creamy cheese that will elevate a casserole as a gourmet meal, adds a twist to sauces, and becomes a delicious topping for soups and salads. This cheese, also sold as slices, is perfect for adding to a cold sandwich or melts beautifully in a hot one. For entertaining, it is the ideal addition to a cheese board or as part of hors d'oeuvres. Gayo Azul Queso Blanco, a fresh mild white cheese, holds its shape well, making it ideal for pan grilling, especially paired with eggs. It also has a crumbly texture for topping salads, soups, and tacos. Gayo Azul Dutch Edam is a bit firmer than Gouda with a rich flavor and smooth, creamy texture. This semi-hard cheese is aged in a red wax ball instead of a wheel, making it easy to cut on cheese boards, shred in baking dishes, and cube in salads and vegetable dishes. Gayo Azul Sliced Swiss, a rindless European Swiss with perfect eyes; offers a sweet, nutty taste profile on cold and grilled sandwiches. Delicious ideas for easy holiday breakfast entertaining and recipes for other meals as well as retailers can be found at www.gayoazul.com. "Food has become even bigger in entertaining this year," explains Seife. "People are not going out as much and spending more time with immediate family and a few close friends. Cheese is a fun way to create a centerpiece with a cheese platter. Along with crowd pleasers, I would recommend adding some unique cheeses for guests to try. They will probably become big fans." Consumers are looking for more international flavors and expanding their horizons. When they shop at retailers, consumers will

Avocado Holiday Egg Bake

{

2 large Hass Avocados, (ripe but firm, not too soft) 4 medium eggs, the smaller the better 1 cup crumbled Gayo Azul Queso Blanco ½ teaspoon kosher salt ¼ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper ¼ cup diced red bell pepper ¼ teaspoon red pepper flakes (optional) 1 tablespoon chopped parsley

{

Serves 2 to 4 people Preheat your oven to 450 degrees F. Line a baking dish with parchment paper. Look for a small baking dish that would allow the avocado halves to stand upright. Cut the avocado in half lengthwise and remove the pit. Using a spoon, scoop out a little of the flesh of each avocado half- you want it to be large enough to accommodate a medium egg. Season the avocado halves with half of the kosher salt and black pepper, and place them in the prepared baking dish. Break each egg into a small bowl, then carefully slide the yolk and as much as will fit from the white into the center of each avocado half. Bake until the whites are set, about 15 minutes. If the egg yolks have developed a thin crust while baking, you can remove it carefully with a small sharp knife. Top the avocado egg with Gayo Azul crumbled Queso Blanco, the remaining salt, black pepper, red pepper, parsley and red pepper flakes if you want a little more spice. Serve immediately.

FUN WINE® Set to Disrupt the Beverage Industry with Never Before Used Monk Fruit

:;

!""#$%$&'(')*+'$,*+*-./'$$ $$$0'1'23')$4556'

777892*+*-./'81"2


FUN WINE®, the innovative flavored wine brand, announced today the launch of a trendsetting, new beverage collection, Hard Bubbly™ with an ingredient never seen before in the industry MONK FRUIT. The lightly carbonated, everyday wine drinks includes three new flavors — Peach Passion Moscato™, Cappuccino Chardonnay™ and Espresso Cabernet™, alongside current award-winning favorites — Coconut Chardonnay™, Strawberry Rosé Moscato™, and Sangria. All six FUN WINE flavors will have 59 calories per 5 oz. pour, less than half the calorie content of traditional wine and the lowest globally for a 5.5% ABV wine product. All six are produced with all natural, gluten-free ingredients, and all are manufactured in a vegan-certified plant in the European Union. The new collection will be distributed in the US starting in Q 4 2020 to over 150 existing and new FUN WINE wholesalers, and in 2021 FUN WINE will continue to expand its US and global footprint. Joe Peleg, Founder & CEO of FUN WINE, stated,

“We are thrilled that in such a short time we have become the fastest-growing flavored wine beverage brand in the US. Moving forward, in addition to our US expansion with over 150 existing and new distributors, we are on a fast track to grow overseas, where we are continuing to nurture relationships with key importers, distributors, and large retail chains on six continents- Asia, Africa, Australia, Europe, and North and Central America.” New 330 mL Aluminum Bottles FUN WINE also introduced today a disruptive packaging concept it has been working on for over a year for use by the wine beverage industry as an alternative to cans — a 330 mL recyclable aluminum bottle created specially to handle the chemical characteristics of the wine. FUN WINE is currently sold in 750 mL glass bottles and 250 mL slim cans ahead of its Q4 introduction of the new 330 mL aluminum bottles.

About FUN WINE FUN WINE® is a "Better-for-You," low ABV, low-calorie, flavored, all-natural, and lightly carbonated everyday wine beverage available in award-winning, bold and refreshing flavors that has been awarded for its artistically inspired bottles based on Miami’s distinct art, fashion and music culture -- created by renowned Miami graffiti and pop artist, Miguel Paredes.

How to Use CBD to Tackle Holiday-Related Stress The winter holidays should be relaxing, joyous, and merry. But, between long flights, balancing numerous family gatherings (or video chats), planning for gift-giving, and adjusting to an altered sleep schedule the holidays can turn from restful to ultra-stressful in the blink of an eye. When this holiday-related stress becomes too much to handle, it can manifest in the body and mind in many ways.

properties. In fact, research¹ shows that taking CBD supplements may be a great way to relieve stress and thoughts of overwhelm. This makes it perfect to incorporate during the fast-paced holiday season. But, because stress is not one-size-fits-all, it’s crucial to choose a CBD product that aims explicitly to alleviate your specific stress symptoms, whether they be mental, physical, or a combination of both.

For some, stress presents itself in the form of sleeplessness, irritability, and an unstable mood. For others, stress may look like aches and pains ranging from headaches to an upset stomach. Whichever way you’re impacted by it, stress is no joke. And, holiday stress in particular can unleash the inner Grinch in even the merriest of us all.

How Can CBD Help? Luckily, there is a reliable way to take care of holiday stress once and for all… CBD. Many people have turned to CBD products to squash these winter woes due to its relaxing

In Spirit

with Vedo Pitnjakovic Appleton Estate 8 Year Reserve: 8 Years Young

Appleton, nestled in the Nassau Valley on the Black River in Southwest Jamaica. The Appleton Estate definitely does not lack history, dating back to 1655 when the English conquered the Spainiards. In 1845 Appleton Estate changed ownership from the Dickinson family to a series of prominent Jamaican families. Joy Spence, the first female master blender in the world had a vision when it came to the Appleton Estate 8 Year Reserve, to uphold and maintain the traditions of the Estate. The Appleton Estate 8 Year Reserve maintains this while introducing a new staple to the Appleton lineup. It is a blend of aged rums with 8 years being the youngest in the blend sitting at 43% ABV. It is produced from molasses in Pot Stills and goes through a chill filtration process to remove fatty amino acid molecules that Anthony Nader @52chefs result in a cloudy spirit when ice is introduced. I genuinely enjoyed the task of trying to figure it out due to all of the complex intricacies. The nose is so unique! I picked up apple, cinnamon, orange, and toffee. On the palette it is very welcoming, I pick up notes of ginger and soft oak spice that opens it up to some wonderful cocktail variations. It finishes off sweet, with heavier notes of cinnamon and honey but balanced with some astringency. Besides fitting perfectly into a classic Daiquiri, I recommend using it in a Coquito, known as the Puerto Rican Eggnog just in time to deck the halls and share with your loved ones and for $28.99 it won’t break the bank especially for a 8 year old Rum.

Hot sauce definitely carries a specific identity in a select few states. I don’t believe the whole country knows “how” to do it because different regions have different special ties. Having a range from Louisiana style, to Buffalo (NY) sauce, to Carolina Reaper, etc. makes me want to capture the identity I feel Atlanta has always had but never put an official name on. I haven’t made that flavor yet but it might contain some of my original recipe with some key ingredients added. I want a flavor that’s parallel to the wing sauce out in Atlanta. !"#$(,1,'#A,($)",$;*4E,)/0B$A'*0$F#4$)",$-*;A*/B0$)#$+,0($"#)$+*&-,$)#$G#+$C0B,',+$-&+)#;,4+$ %"#$A&4-"*+,($)",$HI8$<JK$LI.$K,''$&+$*9#&)$)"*)$A4#;#)/#0M Every single idea is a collective debate until we agree on a plan. Between LVRN, myself, and anyone we partner with. We didn’t wanna just make it an Atlanta thing or a regional thing, so getting hot sauce to LA residents was second nature. Whether it was by mail or by robot, I had to include LA simply because I'm a LA resident and I wanted to make sure they’re a part of what we’re trying to bring to anyone who’s a fan of myself or a fan of food.

I'm sure as we test more recipes and are able to get back to traveling, that we will have staple sauces that pay homage to specific cities.

That's a forever goal. As many as it makes sense.

The first round of Hot Sauce was for sale through his augmented reality pop up shop and engaged fans through a socially distance adapted futuristic experience for LA fans via special delivery of an early exclusive bottle of the hot sauce, brought directly to their door by a robot to prize winners & media. “600 Degrees Hot” that will live past the life cycle of the project. 6LACK further integrated the hot sauce into the marketing rollout for his project through his 6LACK on Black Business Activation in partnership with Postmates and Atlanta restaurant favorite "Goodfellas" which is a black owned business. For the weekend of "6 pc hot" release, fans were able to order a custom 6LACK wing entry off the menu.

Exclusive Interview with 6LACK

“I honestly can’t pinpoint where my love for hot sauce started, but I know it’s been since I was a kid. I’ve always had a thing for spicy foods and by the time I was able to see over the stove, I was figuring out how to make meals that paired with my favorite hot sauces. Between cooking my own things for my siblings, and saving up my money to go to the local hot wing spot in Atlanta, I built up a tolerance & love for all things “Hot” and it’s safe to say that will never fade. 600 degrees is my thank you to the city I grew up in. It is my added bit of comfort and flavor that I can bring with me wherever I am and share with whomever I care about. 600 degrees... it’s just fye.”
