Cookin’ Up Holiday Food and Fun

There were some tantalizing aromas hovering in Heritage Hall at the Salina Bicentennial Center. A crowd of over 700 food enthusiasts gathered Thursday evening to learn a little about cooking at the KSAL Taste of Home Cooking School.

Taste of Home’s culinary specialist Jamie Dunn demonstrated on stage step-by-step recipes for some of the season’s best dishes. The cooking school proved to be the perfect recipe for home cooks to learn some new recipe ideas and tips as they prepare to head back to the kitchen to cook up holiday favorites.

Dunn prepared 10 different recipes on stage. Food prepared include salad, breakfast burritos, casseroles, main courses, and even snack foods and desserts.

Attendees received a gift bag including the Taste of Home Cooking School magazine. The special issue includes recipes featured during the program, along with many more, as well as coupons from participating national food companies.

Numerous prizes were also given away throughout the event, everything from cooking utensils and crock pots to gift certificates.

Each dish that was prepared on stage was also given away, and the stove used to prepare the food was even given away. Judith Courtney from Salina is taking it home.

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.
