The Manning Times is bringing America's leading cooking school program to Weldon Auditorium in Manning on March 12.
Taste of Home Culinary Specialist Michelle "Red" Roberts will be on-hand to share her home cooking tips and tricks while demonstrating step-by-step recipes for the season's best dishes. The Taste of Home Cooking School and chefs like Roberts have inspired more than 135,000 passionate home chefs at 200-plus events nationwide. Attendees experience exciting recipe demonstrations using ingredients that are easily found at local grocery stores, 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 and delicious recipes to your seasonal repertoire," Roberts said.
Attendees will receive a gift back that includes the Taste of Home Cooking School magazine, which includes recipes featured during the program, along with many more, as well as coupons and other goodies from participating local companies and sponsors.
General admission will be $12, while VIP admission will be $35.
