Upcoming cooking school picking up momentum

This year, the Homemaker Schools is celebrating its 50th anniversary so there are many special surprises in store. Plans for the upcoming cooking school in Craig are taking shape after Home Economist Katie O’Rourke visited the area recently to discuss details of the program.

“It’s going to be an exciting event and we are expecting a good crowd,” said Charlene McGilton, of the Craig Daily Press, the main sponsor of the event. The cooking school is associated with three national magazines, Taste of Home, Country Woman and Quick Cooking.

As was recently announced, Homemaker Schools of Greendale, Wisc., has scheduled one of its Taste of Home Cooking School demonstrations at the Moffat County High School auditorium Monday. This is one of only 250 locations across the nation selected for the 1999 Taste of Home Cooking School programs.

The two-hour cooking event will include on-stage demonstrations of food preparation, new food products and kitchen shortcuts, along with fun and lots of prizes.

“Each attendee will receive a free cookbook, which includes the 10 recipes demonstrated during the program. Of course, the size of the audience does not allow everyone to sample the recipes but the prepared dishes will be given away to 10 lucky people to take home,” said McGilton.

“That’s not all. Each person there will receive a free ‘gift bag’ with valuable coupons and other items, and be included in drawings for lots of door prizes.”

Homemaker Schools which recently changed the name of their program to the Taste of Home Cooking School has been conducting these food and product demonstrations for 50 “golden” years.

People will want to make plans early to attend this special celebration. Tickets are $5 each and
