About the California Milk Advisory Board
The California Milk Advisory Board (CMAB), an instrumentality of the California Department of Food and Agriculture, is funded by the state’s 1,600+ dairy families. With headquarters in South San Francisco and Modesto, the CMAB is one of the largest commodity boards in the United States. The CMAB executes advertising, public relations, research, and retail and food service promotional programs on behalf of California dairy products, including Real California Milk and Real California Cheese.
The CMAB was formed in 1969 to promote California dairy products in an ever-growing and competitive marketplace. It operates on the principle that a healthy dairy industry is just as important to consumers as it is to milk producers, and that the ready availability of California dairy products contributes to the good health and well-being of the state’s population.
About Nicole Presley of PresleysPantry.com
Growing up, Nicole’s mom never cooked, but Nicole remembers being fascinated with people who could cook. At social functions, instead of playing outside with the rest of the children, she’d anchor herself in the kitchen to watch the real entertainment unfold, with the hopes that they would let her help somehow…. always asking a million questions about what was being made and how it was prepared. She knew then, as a small child, that cooking was the farthest thing from a chore…. it was a true art form and one she would try and excel at for the rest of her life. She’s never stopped since and says that cooking and baking are her passion.
In PresleysPantry.com Nicole highlights the recipes of her scrumptious journey and tells the story of how she created them, where herinspiration came from and the travels that allowed her to taste foreign foods and incorporate them in her cooking and baking.
