Last week I talked about my trip to Stuttgart Arkansas to tour Riceland and a big part of that trip was getting to attend the Taste of Home Cooking School. If you don’t know, the Taste of Home Cooking School is a live cooking demonstration done by one of the Taste of Cooking chefs! Not only do you get a cooking demo of bunch of fabulous recipes but you also get tons of cooking tips and tricks that you can use in your kitchen. How cool is that?
Before the Taste of Home Cooking School there was a vendor fair and Riceland was a big part of that! I got the opportunity to work in the booth and tell people all about Riceland’s newest products, the Rice’NEasy products, Rice Bran Oil, and Boil in a Bag Rice. I had a blast getting to talk to so many different people!
I got to wear this cool apron and drink yummy coffee that was made by a yummy local coffee shop called Double Shots. They grind and brew there own beans so you better believe it when I tell you it’s delicious!
After the vendor fair we went to a VIP party where we got to meet the our Taste of Home chef for the evening, Jamie! She was so funny and very personable and she signed my cookbook!!
I loved getting to meet her and hear about how much she loved Riceland Rice, she even used the Saffron Rice’NEasy mix during her Creole Rice Cakes recipe!
Jamie made a total of six yummy recipes during our Taste of Cooking School and I learned a LOT from her! One of my favorite tips was to keep your cling/saran wrap in the freezer that way it doesn’t get all tangled up on itself when you try and use it. How genius is that?
If you ever get the chance to attend a Taste of Home Cooking School then I would highly recommend it. Thank you Riceland for giving me the chance to attend!!

I’ve subscribed to Taste of Home for years and I’ve always wanted to go to one of their cooking schools. I can tell you had tons of fun! I imagine that coffee was delish!
Vera Sweeney says
This would be amazing to go to!! I love Taste Of Home, their cookbooks are amazing to cook out of and full of great recipes!
I love Taste of Home! Almost every time I look up a recipe I find out that it originally came from taste of home. They have such good recipes and they’re easy I love it!

I love Taste of Home. Didn’t know they had a cooking school. This looks like a blast!
Taste of Home was one of the few magazines that I enjoyed reading on a daily basis- I also look for the holiday specials. Of course, I couldn’t do it on an empty stomach because then I’d want to cook everything.

Rebecca Swenor says
The Taste of Home Cooking School sounds like it was a lot of fun. I didn’t know about all the RiceLand products and the Rice Bran Oil is something I am going to have to check out for sure. Thanks for sharing this awesome event.
Wow! I never knew that Home Cooking had a school or a conference one could go to learn about different cooking techniques.
Mimi Green says
I’ve never been to cooking school before but this sounds really cool. I love the saran wrap tip, I get so frustrated with it I end up balling it up and tossing it in the trash.
Liz Mays says
It’s so cool that you were able to learn some delicious recipes from Jamie. I would love to go to a Taste of Home Cooking School.
Hmm I feel like an idiot being the only person who has never heard of Taste of Home – but I am glad I do – will go find a copy today :)
What a neat cookbook to have and love Taste of Home. Glad you were able to experience this and share with us so we can get a bit of Taste of Home …. at home!
Omg how fun was this?!?! I just love food events!! Taste of Food is pretty awesome too!

So much fun! Anything to do with food and I’m sure I’m going to have a very good time. Going to cooking school is one of my dreams.
