Have a question about our Taste of Home LIVE show? We’re here to help with answers to our most frequently asked questions below.

Taste of Home LIVE is a new interactive, live culinary show, brought to you by the country's number one cooking magazine, Taste of Home! Our themed tours highlight Taste of Home recipes, each tested in our Taste of Home Test Kitchen and featuring familiar, everyday ingredients. Taste of Home LIVE also teaches food decorating tips, table–scaping ideas and helpful hosting advice for entertaining made easy.

For nearly 70 years, Taste of Home hosted Cooking School events across the country in partnership with local media companies. In 2017, Taste of Home debuted an entirely NEW event series.

We are investing in our live programs to bring you more recipes and techniques, fresh and educational shows—including live Q&As with our Chefs—upgraded door prizes and dessert sampling.

Pre–Show: Sip on cocktails at our pre–show cash bar, snap a picture with friends at our photo booth, and shop for cookbooks, gadgets and gifts.

The Show: Learn our hottest holiday how–to's during our 90–minute demonstration style show. Ask our chef questions and win prizes throughout the evening. A few lucky attendees will even get a chance to come up on stage to assist with a recipe or participate in a competition!

Post–Show: Finish the evening with dessert! Every attendee will sample our show–stopping dessert recipe.

VIP attendees will receive a full meal before the event starts. General Admission to the LIVE show will include dessert samples, but it's recommended that you eat a full meal before you attend the show. Most of our hotel partners have an onsite restaurant that's perfect for a bite to eat before the show begins.

Our Taste of Home LIVE events are located at hotels with access to parking. Please contact the hotel on parking specifications at that location.

Taste of Home LIVE does not offer assigned seating at our shows. VIP ticket holders will receive exclusive access to preferred seating closer to the stage, but our General Admission seating is on a first come, first serve basis. We offer seat savers at the door so you can reserve your spot while you enjoy our pre–show experience!

Of course! Taste of Home LIVE encourages families to attend our event together. Children under the age of 3 do not need their own ticket to the show.

Taste of Home LIVE offers both general admission and VIP tickets to our shows. Each has a slightly different experience, but equally fun and entertaining!
