					?In today's busy environment, families time and again share meals over pizza boxes
and takeout. Pampered Chef is altering this phenomenon, revitalizing family meals
and giving people more time to spend with those they love.

Background

In the old tradition of bringing families back together at the dinner table, the
Pampered Chef is there with recipes and kitchen products to help prepare a delicious
meal. Pampered Chef has been serving families for about 30 years, founded in 1980
by Doris Christopher. As a working mother, but not a chef, Doris realized the need for
moderately priced but remarkable working kitchen tools. With her teaching
qualifications, she began in-home cooking demonstrations to showcase what is now
the Pampered Chef products.

"Cooking Shows" as they are known are the in-home cooking demonstrations done by
today's Pampered Chef consultants. Pampered Chef claims that over 1 million
Cooking Shows are held each year, and more than 12 million customers have been
served with their high-quality products.
