Taste of Home coming March 11

Wednesday, February 17, 2010

Get ready.

It's coming soon.

It's new and fresh.

It will tantalize your senses with a smorgasbord of mouthwatering sights and fresh picked flavors.

What you ask?

The Taste of Home Cooking School, the No. 1 culinary demonstration in the country, presented live at Putnam County Fairgrounds in The Community Building on March 11.

In today's downsized economy, consumers are turning to home cooking in large numbers. Food provides a "feel good" atmosphere. When coupled with family participation, meal preparation becomes a fun activity.

Taste of Home Cooking School has a springtime garden of recipes that will bring family and friends together for rewarding mealtime gatherings.

Our culinary team knows consumers are looking for simpler, greener, and cleaner recipes.

Simpler meaning using only a few ingredients.

Greener denoting local and sustainable, using fresh seasonal produce.

Cleaner being more natural and providing health benefits.

The Taste of Home Cooking School Brand Name Cookbook, published specifically for the Cooking Schools, will include these current trends as well as timeless favorites.

This $5.99 value will be presented to every guest who attends the show.

Come join our springtime food adventure. You may not be able to travel as far or often these days, but we'll help you experience new and exotic tastes. Imagine yourself at a French bistro. You culminate your dining experience with a fruit clafouti. Clafouti, (pronounced kla-foo-tee) is a country-French dessert made by topping a layer of fresh fruit with batter. It is served hot and sometimes topped with cream.

Culinary Specialist Dana Elliot will be creating a mushroom variation of this unique dish that pairs well with a salad to become a light, satisfying springtime meal.

Expand your cooking techniques as you watch Elliot prepare a monter au beurre and learn how it differs from a beurre blanc sauce.

The program will showcase 10 delightful recipes, new food products, kitchen shortcuts, and plating techniques. Sprinkled in between recipes will be opportunities for lucky winners to receive special door prizes.

It's an evening you don't want to miss. You can find details about purchasing tickets on TasteofHome.com or by contacting the Banner Graphic at 653-5151.
