Marc Silverstein Marc Silverstein with Holiday Entertaining Tips!





Candace Rose: What are the secrets to throwing a great holiday party?

Marc Silverstein: “Well, one of the secrets is you getting to spend some actual time with your guests. You know you’re often too busy in the kitchen cooking to spend time. Well, we don’t want that, we want to free up some time for you, right?”

Candace Rose: Absolutely.


Marc Silverstein: “So we’re going to free up some time for you with the GE Double Oven- the GE Cafe Double Oven gas range. This is the largest in the industry, it cooks your entire meal for you if you want; the entire holiday meal at the same time. It has a heavy duty roller rack that glides in and out gently protecting your most delicate foods. That’s another time saver that GE’s tri-ring burner. It’s like three burners in one. You can turn it up to full blast, power boil your water or you can just gently simmer, melt your chocolates. It’s restaurant inspired so you’re going to look and cook just like a real pro.”

Candace Rose: And how about when it comes to decor?

Marc Silverstein: “Well decor- here’s something that will brighten up the room, give your guests exactly the drink that they want and entertain them at the same time. That’s perfect for entertaining, and decorating is the fizz from the SodaStream. It turns water into soda in just seconds. It has a patented fizz chip that shows just how fizzy is that you’re making. It tells you how much CO2 is left in the tank. There’s more than 50 flavors so everybody gets what they want. You don’t have to worry about lugging or storing cases of soda anymore or dealing with the empties and recycling, it’s all right there. Now how is that for- people are going to walk in and go ‘I love that’ what is that?”

Candace Rose: Do you have any additional tips or information this morning?

Marc Silverstein: “Yeah. Great, serve up some fun; I have this wonderful cooking addition of Scrabble. It’s just like the classic Scrabble fun game but you get bonus points for words that are related to cooking and the recipe cards allow you to double and triple your score. Mini grocery bags hold all the tiles, it’s a great idea for when your guests are over or bring it as a gift to the host and hostess.”
