Every year, more than 300 Taste of Home Cooking School events attract up to 300,000 people. With cooking demonstrations by the Taste of Home team, led by Michael Barna, attendees will learn seasonal recipes that are perfect for every holiday and occasion, and every skill level. Like all Taste of Home recipes, these recipes were shared by people who cook at home as a way to bring family and friends together, and can be made with readily available ingredients to create memorable meal moments. Plus, learn tips and tricks that will help you save time and make the most of your cooking experience. It’s no wonder why 50 percent of Cooking School attendees return annually, and one in 10 seek out more than one Cooking School each year.

Come early to the show to visit booths hosted by local vendors. You’ll receive a gift bag with coupons and samples, and have the opportunity to register for door prizes and even win the dishes prepared on stage during the show!
