I just finished a show in Kalispell, Montana, and it was a great day! I’ve been coming to Kalispell for several years, and it’s one of my favorite shows to do. Everyone is so helpful and friendly, and there is always lots of excitement when Taste of Home is in town. And to make things even better, it’s such a beautiful part of the country to visit; I love being able to drive through the mountains and around Flathead Lake as I make my way to Kalispell.
I had some great help from some of the culinary arts students at Flathead High School, and they all did a fabulous job! There’s a lot of preparation involved in putting a show together, and I couldn’t have done it without their help.
I also had the opportunity to meet several VIP ticket holders; at this particular event, they received a Taste of Home Cookbook, a light meal provided by the grocery sponsor, Super 1 Foods, and we had a short Q&A session. I love getting to spend some time with Taste of Home fans before the show, and look forward to all of the VIP events at the different Cooking School’s that I conduct.
If you haven’t had a chance to come to a show yet this spring, I hope you’ll be able to make it to one; we’re just getting started, and I’ll be in Idaho, Washington, Oregon, California, Nevada and Utah over the next few months. Be sure to check our schedule of shows on www.tasteofhome.com, and I hope to see you on the road!
