ABOUT THE COOKING SCHOOL
The Taste of Home Cooking School is America’s leading cooking school program. Over 300,000 passionate consumers participate each year at over 300 events across the country. Cooking schools are presented in the spring of each year from the beginning of March to mid-May and again in fall from the beginning of September to mid-November.
The Taste of Home Cooking School is a 2 1/2 hour stage demonstration of 10-12 recipes, offering valuable cooking tips. The Taste of Home Cooking School—Made Easy is an onstage program of 7-8 recipes (about 1 1/2 hours) that offers quick and easy dishes along with craft and decorating ideas. While some schools have local vendor booths and food concession stands this is not the case for all locations.
There is a Taste of Home Cooking School magazine, which is produced specifically for the cooking school event, and is given away to participants as well as sold at retail.
