HP Hood, a Lynnfield-based dairy brand, said Wednesday that it has partnered with uber chef Chris Coombs for a marketing campaign that will show how cream can alchemize ho-hum chow into “restaurant-quality dishes.”

As foodies know, Coombs is the culinary force behind such restaurants as Boston Chops, dbar, and Deuxave.

And as home cooks know, Hood cream can be an essential ingredient for such fare as Crustless Spinach Quiche or Apple Butter Aebleskivers with Maple Chantilly.

Plans now call for Coombs to be featured in the second annual “Chef Creations Inspired by Hood Cream” campaign.  Throughout the year, Coombs will represent Hood Cream through cooking demonstrations, event appearances, recipe development, and sweepstakes, including a chance to win a private, six-course dinner at Deuxave, Hood said.

In a statement, Coombs said: “I use Hood Cream at my restaurants, and it’s what I use at home. My family has a long history with the brand—my grandfather worked there for more than 50 years —so I’m honored to be carrying on the tradition.”
