Why I'm sitting at the #CaptainsTable this holiday season...
Chef Hugh Acheson will be reviewing the recipes and photos submitted by each blogger, and he will choose a winner each round to receive a $500 gift card to the retail store of their choice. At the end of the challenge, an overall winner will also be awarded a trip to a Captain's Table US event in the spring where they will meet Hugh.
But wait, here's the really cool part - each time the #CaptainsTable hashtag is used across social media channels from now through the beginning of February, Captain Morgan will donate $1 to WhyHunger! So, if you see a post labeled with the #CaptainsTable hashtag, please share it; we want to raise as much money as we can for a great cause.
With each challenge, I will be updating this post with a link to the Captain Morgan-infused recipes that I've created.
- Thanksgiving: Spiced Pumpkin Rum Flan | Cranberry Spiced Rum Fizz
- The Holidays: Boozy Coconut White Hot Chocolate + Rum-Spiked Banana Bread w/ Hazelnuts & Coconut
- Game Day: Sticky-Sweet Caribbean Wings | Rum Runner Sangria
If you're interested in following along with this challenge, please check back from now through February for updates. You can also drop by and visit Captain Morgan brand via their social channels, and share recipes and posts that you enjoy using the #CaptainsTable hashtag, in turn, raising more money for WhyHunger!

Please join us in raising spirits this holiday season!
*Update: I am honored to have been chosen as the Overall Winner of the Captain's Table Challenge by Chef Hugh Acheson!
