Reserved seating for the Taste of Home Cooking School & Expo sold out Wednesday.
About half of the general seating is available for The Victoria Advocate cooking show. Organizers do not anticipate the tickets will be available much longer.
"They're going very quickly," said Emily Weissmiller, the Advocate's marketing manager.
The remaining tickets can be purchased online Sunday on victoriaadvocate.com/ taste, at The Victoria Advocate office and The Cooking Depot in Cuero.
People who purchase tickets online and by phone can pick them up at will call the day of the event.
The third annual expo is scheduled to take place May 8, the Tuesday before Mother's Day at the Victoria Community Center.
Each participant will receive a goodie bag with special offers and items, including a free subscription to Taste of Home magazine.
Attendees who bring a canned food donation will be entered into a drawing for a gift basket donated by H-E-B. The proceeds benefit the Food Bank of the Golden Crescent.
Weissmiller suggested part of the reason for the increased demand is the ongoing communication with last year's attendees. Those who choose can provide feedback about their experiences.
"We want the customers to have the best experience possible," she said.
