SALISBURY — The famed Taste of Home Cooking School, attended by nearly 5 million people during the last 20 years, is coming back to Salisbury.

Grab your spatula, as well as family, friends and neighbors, and attend the fun-filled cooking experience Tuesday, April 23 at The Event Center, 315 Webb Road in Salisbury.


Every year, more than 300 Taste of Home Cooking School events attract up to 300,000 people.

With cooking demonstrations by the Taste of Home team, led by Michelle Roberts, attendees will learn seasonal recipes that are perfect for every holiday, occasion and skill level.

Like all Taste of Home recipes, these recipes were shared by people who cook at home as a way to bring family and friends together, and can be made with readily available ingredients to create memorable meal moments.

Learn tips and tricks that will help you save time and make the most of your cooking experience.

Come early to the show to visit booths hosted by local vendors. You’ll receive a gift bag with coupons and samples, and have the opportunity to register for door prizes and even win the dishes prepared on stage during the show.

Reserved seating is available for the event, with VIP ticket holders receiving a brand new exclusive cookbook, ‘Taste of Home Best Loved Recipes.’

In this biggest ever collection you’ll get 1,485 mouth-watering main dishes, simple sides, soups, eye-opening breakfasts and much more. The volume retails for $35 and is only available to VIP ticket holders. More than half of the VIP tickets have been sold.

General admission seats are $10 in advance; $12 after April 15.

The Salisbury Post is selling three different Taste of Home cookbooks this year. You can purchase them in advance at the Post, 131 West Innes St., Salisbury, or the night of the show.

• Taste of Home ‘Most Requested Recipes 2013,’ which contains more than 400 of most-loved recipes from the past year for $25.67.

• Taste of Home ‘Busy Family Favorites,’ a collection of more than 350 speedy, yet satisfying recipes that can help get a delicious dinner on the table in 30 minutes or less for $16.04.
