Just wanted to remind you that tickets are still available for the Taste of Home Cooking School tomorrow in Monticello. (The details are below.)
After I typed up the last round of briefs for the show, I was asked to emcee the event. This means I just got a preview of items in the gift bag each ticket holder recieves. There's some good stuff in there, and the list of recipes looks delicious. I'm guessing just the cookie dough truffles alone will be worth attending.
I'll be there before the cooking show starts at 1 p.m., so if you see me, say hi. I'd love to chat with you about food, the event or The News-Gazette's features section. I'll be wearing my N-G nametag.
