Taste of Home’s culinary specialist is excited to visit Craig
On Monday, Taste of Home will kick off at Moffat County High School, giving Craig residents a chance to participate in a live cooking show.
The host of the show is culinary specialist Kristy Larson, who has showcased the Taste of Home in years past.
“I’m excited. I’ve always had a lot of fun there with the audience and with the show, I’m glad we’re back again this fall,” Larson said.
Larson is originally from Othello, Washington but now lives in Salt Lake City, Utah. She has her bachelor’s degree in Family and Consumer Science Education from Brigham Young University in Idaho.
“We’re excited to have her back in Craig,” said Craig Daily Press Publisher Renee Campbell. “We’re equally excited to co-sponsor the event.”
Larson said that the audience will learn how to make fancy meals quickly, especially because everyone’s lives seem to be increasingly busy.
“I want to make these recipes quick to make at home,” she said. “I feel like Taste of Home really relates to the home cook.”
Participants have an opportunity to win prizes and take home food at the end of the evening. Also, goodie bags magazines, recipes and more will be passed out, she said.
“You also have a chance to visit all the great vendors that are there,” Larson said.
Tickets can be purchased at the Craig Daily Press or Miller Family Appliance.
