Always on the lookout for new recipes? Love to tune in to cooking shows?On April 16, Quad-Cities food enthusiasts will have a chance to experience the excitement of a live cooking demonstration at the Taste of Home Cooking School--and leave with 10 new recipes to add to their kitchen repertoire.

In just over two hours, culinary specialist Guy Klinzing will demonstrate each recipe from start to finish, offering kitchen tips that make their preparation a snap.The recipes are taken straight from the pages of Taste of Home magazine, which collects family-favorite dishes that feature familiar, everyday ingredients and rigorously tests the recipes to ensure success.

A biennial event that drew more than 800 people the last time it came to the Bettendorf Waterfront Convention Center, this year the Cooking School will feature expanded seating to accommodate even more culinary fans. Doors at the convention center,2021 State St., Bettendorf, will open at 5 p.m. to give attendees a chance to browse vendor demonstration booths, and the cooking demonstration will start at 7 p.m.

Tickets for the event range in price from $14 for reserved seating, $20 for preferred seating and $35 for VIP seating. All attendees will leave with a goodie bag full of products, coupons and recipes, as well as a complimentary subscription to either Taste of Home or The Family Handyman magazine. VIP ticket holders also receive an extra cookbook and have the opportunity to meet with Guy Klinzing at the event.
