Hosted by the Davis County Clipper, the evening will walk guests through a wide variety of meals for parties, brunches and cold evenings at home.
"I really enjoy testing recipes and presenting new dishes on stage," said Gonsalves. "Cooking should be enjoyable, not a dreaded chore."
Some of the meal-sized recipes that will be demonstrated at the event include ham and cheese strudel and updated shepherd's pie.
Taste of Home's cheesy chili dip is designed for either parties or fall family gatherings, and the list of desserts includes tiramisu and almond crumble twist.
Also on the dessert list will be the promised cheesecake, a blend of peanut butter, cheesecake and Oreo cookies called Peanut Butter Striped Delight Cheesecake.
Guests at the Woods Cross High Taste of Home cooking demonstration will also receive a gift bag with a Taste of Home cookbook and be eligible to win door prizes or receive one of the finished products of a recipe demonstration. Those who come early will have the chance to snack on treats provided by vendors.
"The popularity of our programs is amazing," said Gonsalves, who handles Taste of Home demonstrations in Utah, California, Nevada, Washington, Oregon and Idaho. "People will stand in line for tickets and in some locations the shows are sold out in less than a day."
Taste of Home Cooking School is the largest producer of cooking school promotions in North America, representing a wide variety of companies including Birds Eye, Eggland, Kraft, Rhodes and others. The school hosts Taste of Home promotional events in over 300 cities each year.
