The Taste of Home Cooking School is happening at Turning Stone Resort Casino this year, and it's sure to be a great event. It's more than just learning to cook a meal or two, though. There's a lot more going on during the event. Here are some of the things you can look forward to, whether this is your third time at the event, or if you're new to it.

1 - Shopping Before the Show

There are vendors on site before the show even starts! You can pick up some great deals, and learn about products you've never known about before. A great way to kickoff the event - a little shopping before the cooking!

2 - Learning Some Awesome Recipes

Even if you're an expert in the kitchen (or just a beginner), you'll learn a whole bunch of great recipes that you can use to show off this holiday season. And the best part - you're not just learning one recipe, or one trick to make your holiday meals better, there's a bunch! You'll be able to use these recipes for other events - not just one family holiday meal.

3 - ...But it's More Than Just the Recipes

Sure, you'll learn how to make some great meals, but you'll learn more than that. It's not just about the recipes, and learning to cook certain meals. You'll learn about foods that go together, ways to put your own spin on the dishes, and you'll get ideas for Thanksgiving, and Christmas - that's not just about the food.

4 - Presents

No event would be complete without gifts! Just for going to the Taste of Home Cooking School, you'll get a gift bag, which includes things like samples, coupons, a year subscription to Taste of Home Magazine - things like that.

5 - Things to Do After the Event

This year's Taste of Home is at Turning Stone Resort Casino, which means after the event there's still tons to do. You can get a good meal at one of the many restaurants inside Turning Stone. You can also test your luck on some of the slot machines, or the card tables on the gaming floor. You can even sit back and relax in one of the spa areas. Tons to pick from, and a great way to wrap up a great day!

 

The Taste of Home Cooking School is happening in less than three weeks! If you haven't gotten your tickets yet, now is the time to do so. VIP tickets have already sold out, but you can still get your general admission tickets. You can get more info on the event, and how to get your tickets here.
