Wegmans Chef to Tweet Turkey Tips and More
For the third year in a row, Mark Makovec, executive chef at Rochester, N.Y.-based Wegmans Food Markets Inc., will be on Twitter during the three days before Thanksgiving to provide pithy meal prep advice. Makovec will answer consumers’ Turkey Day questions from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday, Nov. 25 through Wednesday, Nov. 27.
Questions may be submitted by tweeting to @Wegmans and using the “#turkey911” hashtag. For additional culinary aid, Wegmans' website spotlights eight ways the grocery chain can offer solutions, such as FAQs, tips and techniques.
“Many people may be cooking turkey for the first time, and others cook it only once a year, so they may not remember what works best,” explained Makovec. “We want to assure our customers that we’re here to help. We’re providing knowledge and resources so folks can relax a bit more and enjoy the time spent with family.”
Family-owned Wegmans operates 83 stores in New York, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Virginia, Maryland and Massachusetts.
