HAZARD — Taste of Home magazine is one of America’s top culinary publications, with a circulation of 3.5 million subscribers. Every year, culinary specialists with Taste of Home magazine travel across the country to present the popular Taste of Home Cooking School. According to the Taste of Home website, the Taste of Home Cooking School is America’s #1 leading cooking school program, providing entertaining and relatable cooking instruction for audiences nationwide. Culinary specialists bring energy, excitement and their love of cooking, live, to approximately 135,000 enthusiastic attendees at more than 200 events across the country each year. Hazard has become an annual part of the Taste of Home Cooking School Tour.
The First Federal Center on the campus of Hazard Community and Technical College once again hosted the Taste of Home Cooking School on March 31. Michelle “Red” Roberts was the Senior Culinary Specialist at the event. The public funneled into the venue to watch the show. Attendees received a gift bag and had the opportunity to browse the tables of local vendors and organizations, which were on display in the auditorium prior to the start of the show. Non-perishable food items were collected for donation to the Corner Haven Homeless Shelter in Hazard.
The event did more than simply bring recipes to life on stage. Folks from the community were given an opportunity to gather and share in a night of fun filled interactions revolving around a topic everyone loves; good food.
