ESSEX JUNCTIONThe Taste of Home Cooking Show took over the fairgrounds on Friday, Sept. 28, and those in attendance were bombarded with a feast for all five senses.
A huge crowd turned out for the event, which featured a live cooking show as well as a number of booths that showcased a variety of products, from Vermont Cheddar Cheese courtesy of Shelburne Farms to Sals Meatball Slidersand for those with full bellies, even some jewelry to fill the eyes and imagination.
What a show, said Lynda Levesque, who had traveled from upstate New York to see the show. My family and I had a wonderful time.
Indeed, Levesque wasnt the only person who traveled some distance to attend the well-regarded show. People from the Northeast Kingdom also took to the roads for the event.
Those in attendance were also given swag bags that included tons of free goodies, such as coupons to local food vendors, helpful kitchen tools, and a cookbook courtesy of Taste of Home.
Michelle Goggins hosted the two-hour event, that featured food-preparation techniques and wisdom for Great Gatherings.
