Craig Briefs: Taste of Home Cooking School is today in Craig

Craig is slated to get a big treat today when the Taste of Home Cooking School cooks up various meals and conversation at the Moffat County High School auditorium.

Taste of Home culinary specialist Kristi Larson will be at the auditorium to share her home cooking tips and tricks while demonstrating step-by-step recipes for the season's best dishes.

Tickets are on sale and can be purchased at the event's premier sponsors: Craig Daily Press, Miller Family Appliance, Jackson's Office Supply and Blue Ribbon Kitchens.

Attendees will have an opportunity to experience recipe demonstrations using ingredients that are found at the local grocery store, and the dishes are submitted by home cooks from across the country.
