Saturday I went to the Taste of Home Cooking School featuring Culinary Specialist Eric Villegas.
This is the second year my sister has invited me to go with her and her friends.
They do 10 recipes each show and use products given to them by many of the sponsors. This years new sponsors were Dorot who gave them samples of there spices, garlic, cilantro, basil,parsley,ginger and chili. These are found in the frozen section of the stores. I am going to check this week to see it they are in stores near me. The other new product was Chocolate Hazelnut give to them by Jif. In our gift bag we got a sample of the Chocolate hazelnut and a coupon for the Dorot spices along with a sample or coupons from local sponsors.
During the show door prizes from sponsors are given out and at the end all the food they made is given to lucky winners.
It is fun to learn new cooking skills and see the new products that are available.
This year I was a lucky winner of the Taste of Homes Recipes Across AMERICA Cook Book.
I cant wait to try some new recipes, all though looking through it I have found 1 recipe that is close to one in the Spark People Cook Book. I will have to compare them later.
I am looking forward to next years show.
