Chef Michael Barna
All of the excitement of the Taste of Home Cooking School is coming to the E.M.A. Employees Mutual Association, 9 Maple wood Lane, in Ticonderoga on Saturday, June 1.
The all-day event, sponsored by Denton Publications, will feature about 20 booths, complete with displays and samples from businesses in the area.
But the cornucopia of goods and services is only a warm-up to the main attraction—a live cooking show hosted by Taste of Home Chef Michael Barna.
The charismatic chef will prepare 10 recipes, ranging from appetizers to desserts, in front of the energized crowd.
Barna is no stranger to cooking, either. He has given both private and online cooking classes, appeared in national television commercials as a hand model (he even played Mel Gibson’s hand in the movie “Signs”), has helped open three gourmet casino restaurants in Atlantic City and has spent time as the Executive Sous Chef at a four-star hotel in Philadelphia, all before becoming the Executive Chef for a major national specialty gourmet food shop.
In between cooking demonstrations, Barna will also give away dozens of prizes, including the grand prize—a new range from E.J. Monroe.
The doors open at 11 a.m., and the show starts at 2 p.m.
Businesses interested in procuring a booth at the event can call (518) 585–9173.
Tickets are still available at E.J. Monroe, the Ti Chamber, DeCesare’s Pizza, Best Western Plus, the Times of Ti office and the Addison Eagle office, online at timesofti.com, or by calling (518) 585–9173.
