700 attend Taste of Home Cooking School

Roberts attributed the school’s large attendance to Taste of Home’s reputation for offering simple-to-prepare dishes that don’t require exotic ingredients. In fact, all of the recipes she prepared, such as steak and bleu cheese bruschetta, were made with ingredients purchased locally earlier in the afternoon.

“The ingredients are easy to find, and ours are down-home recipes that are easy to do,” Roberts said.

Zethmayr said organizers faced one glitch as they started organizing the program.

“We needed 240-volt service but the Community Center only has 120,” he said.

After he bought $500 worth of electrical parts, two city employees, working on their lunch hours, put together a power board that allowed the on-stage kitchen appliances provided by the Crestview Sears to operate. That effort in itself virtually assured Tuesday night’s program won’t be the Taste of Home Cooking School’s only Crestview appearance.

“We own this equipment now so we have to do another school,” Zethmayr said with a chuckle.
