Specialist Adds Culinary Kick to the Season, SharingDelicious Recipes with Local Home Cooks

Washington, MO (August 13, 2014) – 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 flavorful dishes, the Taste of Home Cooking School is preparing to share seasonal recipes that are certain to delight.  

Taste of Home’s Culinary Specialist Karen Davis will be celebrating Emmaus Homes’ 5th Anniversary Taste of Home Cooking School at First Christian Church on Saturday, November 15. She will be sharing her home cooking tips and tricks while demonstrating step-by-step recipes for the season’s best dishes. 

As always, there will be a Vendor Show before the Cooking School where many local vendors will be selling seasonal crafts, foods, gifts and more. All proceeds from the Cooking School will benefit the more than 250 adults with developmental disabilities that Emmaus Homes is so blessed to serve. 

The Taste of Home Cooking School is America’s leading cooking school program, inspiring more than 150,000 passionate home chefs at approximately 250 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 Karen Davis, Taste of Home Culinary Specialist.  “Gingerbread Cheesecake is one of the recipes that will be demonstrated at the show. With its rich and creamy texture and mouth-watering flavors, this twist on gingerbread is the perfect fall choice to make for your family and friends.”

Every attendee will also receive a Taste of Home Cooking School gift bag filled with magazines, coupons, cooking gear and more. Individuals can also purchase VIP tickets and receive the newest Taste of Home Cookbook “Busy Family Recipes” and Super VIP’s will receive a catered lunch from The Blue Duck Café.
