Taste of Home Cooking School returns to Alexandria
The perfect recipe for creating new memories with loved ones includes good friends, good conversation and, of course, great food. As home cooks across the country head back to the kitchen to cook up fall's comforting favorites, the Taste of Home Cooking School is preparing to share seasonal recipes that are certain to delight.
Taste of Home's local culinary specialist Karen Davis will be at the Lake Geneva Christian Center in Alexandria on Tuesday, September 24 to share her home cooking tips and tricks while demonstrating step-by-step recipes for the season's best dishes. This season's event is brought to Alexandria by the Echo Press.
The Taste of Home Cooking School is America's leading cooking school program, inspiring more than 300,000 passionate home chefs at approximately 300 events nationwide. Attendees experience exciting recipe demonstrations using ingredients that are easily found at the local grocery store and best of all, the dishes are submitted by home cooks from across the country.
"From experienced home chefs to beginners learning their way around the kitchen, the Taste of Home Cooking School offers something for everyone, putting a fresh spin on old favorites and adding new recipes to your seasonal repertoire," said Davis. "Spinach Stuffed Chicken Pockets is one of the recipes that will be demonstrated at the show. With their creamy filling and delightful crispy crust, these elegant entrees are easy enough for weeknights, yet special enough for company, too."
Attendees will receive a gift bag including the Taste of Home Cooking School magazine. This 68-page special issue includes recipes featured during the program, along with many more, as well as coupons from participating national food companies. Attendees can also enter for a chance to win one of many door prizes, including the recipes created onstage that night.
General admission tickets can be purchased for $12 at the Echo Press or Elden's Fresh Foods, both in Alexandria. For more information, visit www.TasteofHome.com/Cooking-Schools.
