The cooking school, presented by The Cooking Depot in Cuero, attracted more than 800 participants last year, with its local and regional exhibitors, food sampling, wine tasting, door prizes and cooking demonstrations. The event also offers free goody bags and a free Taste of Home magazine subscription to all participants.
