Bring The Kids To The Taste Of Home Cooking School
A TV show that caught my eye this fall is Master Chef Junior. These are kids between the ages of 8 and 13 who are wizards in the kitchen. I can't believe what these kids know. I can't believe the cooking talents these kids have.
The show is down to the final two now, but it must have been tough for judges -- Gordon Ramsay, Joe Bastianich and Graham Elliott -- to decide which of these young chefs to let go. Week after week these kids created restaurant-quality appetizers, entrees and desserts.
So the question that keeps going through my head is, where did they learn all of the things they know? Sometimes it's experimenting on your own. Other times it's picking up tips along the way.
That's the whole idea behind the Taste of Home Cooking School coming up this Saturday at the UB Center for the Performing Arts. Emmy Award-winning chef, restaurant owner and cookbook author Eric Villegas is hosting the show this year.
Chef Eric has 10 Taste of Home recipes he'll demonstrate for you. These are all recipes that have been submitted by subscribers to Taste of Home magazine. You'll get all the shortcuts, tips and advice from a pro in a fun show. And if you buy a VIP ticket, you'll get early admission, the best seats in the house and you'll get to meet chef Eric after the show.
Need tickets? They're still available, so we'll see you at the Taste of Home Cooking School!
