Really Big Cooking Show Ticket Giveaway

I'm giving away two sets of tickets each to the The Really Big Cooking Show on Saturday, Nov. 3 at the Thanksgiving Point Barn.
Doors open at 9 a.m., and there will be cooking demonstrations from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Headliner for the cooks is Liz Edmunds, star of KBYU's "The Food Nanny."

Other presenters are:

Karen Petersen, blogger  and author of the cookbook, "365 Days of Slow Cooking" will teach "Slow-Cooking Meals Made Easy."
Some may remember that a few years back, Karen cooked meals in her slow-cooker for a whole year.

Echo Blickenstaff & Emily Walker will teach "Make Your Favorite Restaurant Recipes at Home." They are the authors of the cookbook, "Favorite Family Recipes," also published by Covenant.

Turkey Pot Pie Soup

Loaded Potato Soup
And I will be teaching two "Delicious & Simple Soups,"  in my 30-minute class.  The Turkey Pot Pie Soup is a great way to use Thanksgiving leftovers, with a streamlined, no-fuss crust. The Loaded Potato Soup is a comfort food favorite that comes together really quick.  I mean, where's the "comfort" in spending a couple of hours making the so-called "comfort food?"

There will be booths of vendors giving out samples, and the event should be a lot of fun. I expect it will be something like the Taste of Home Cooking School events.

Tix are $16 in advance, available at Seagull Bookstores. But I'm giving away 2 sets of tickets (2 tix per set)  this week! Just leave me a comment below this blog post, with a first name so I can identify you.  You have until next Tuesday to leave me a comment. Then I'll put the names of all the commenters into a hat and draw out a winner, to be posted Wednesday. You can then email your snail mail address and I'll send you the tix.

Please leave a comment ONLY if you would actually be able to attend the show. I don't want to give away tix to someone who's not planning on attending, leaving a lot of empty seats at the show.

I would love to attend this cooking show! It's an event that I'd like to take my new daughter-in-law to because we both share a love for cooking. She would enjoy it as much as I would. She's a newlywed (and student) who tries so hard to make good nutrious meals.
Thank you,
Cindy Gough
