On Sunday January 27th Kitchen Detail will host its first Short Answer Sunday on Twitter. Nancy will be accepting questions via Twitter Direct Message (get help with direct messaging by looking at the details on the bottom of this page) from now until the 27th, when she be answering each and everyone via the KD Twitter feed.

Nancy will also be live on Twitter on the 27th from ??? to ??? EST, during which time you can ask her questions by typing a question into your own Twitter feed and including @lacuisineus in the text, along with #KDshortAnswerSunday.

To spice things up, the best two questions will earn their askers a free copy of the Chaos  in the Kitchen poster, shown below:

If you can’t figure out where to go on Twitter, you can always visit the Kitchen Detail Twitter page at https://twitter.com/lacuisineus and click either of two red buttons shown below and then typing in your question.

What types of questions should you ask Nancy? Questions that don’t require a long and drawn out answer (as the name of the event implies). The rules are pretty open regarding what kinds of topics to ask questions about, but please keep the content appropriate and on topic for Kitchen Detail.

Have any questions about the event or using Twitter or following Kitchen Detail on Twitter? Contact our snappy tech team at [email protected].

We hope to hear from you and make sure to follow us on Twitter!
