South Georgia gets a class in home cooking

October 4, 2007

Albany -- When people think of the South, they often think good home cooking. The turnout at Thursday evening's "Taste of Home Cooking School" proves it.

Hundreds of South Georgians showed up at the Civic Center for some lessons in southern cooking.

Vendors were also there to showcase their products. Culinary specialist Michelle Roberts gave a live cooking demonstration.

"A new cook may want information, an old cook may want more information. Or you could just learn a new or better way to maybe cook rice if nothing else, said Cathy Gilbert.

"We've asked people to bring can goods or non-perishable items to be donated to the food bank. So we're having fun and trying to do something good for our community as well," said Marketing staff, Mary Bickerstaff.

This was the second annual "Taste of Home Cooking" show sponsored by the Albany Herald.
