#1 Cooking School in Nation to Benefit Knox Area Rescue Ministries


Knoxville, TN - The Taste of Home Cooking School, the #1 cooking school in the nation, is coming to Knoxville on Thursday, November 3. The popular national event will be in the Knoxville Convention Center ballroom. Proceeds from the event will benefit Knox Area Rescue Ministries, and the KARM Abundant Life Kitchen culinary arts job training program will be featured during the evening.

Thirty-five exhibitors will display kitchen products and some will be sampling food items. Everyone in attendance will receive a FREE goody bag with a Taste of Home Cooking Magazine subscription, discount coupons, and more. Sponsors include Food City, WBIR-TV, WIVK-FM, Newstalk 98.7, and the Knoxville News Sentinel. Sponsorships and exhibitor booths are still available.
