Jerry Barilla of Frank and Jerrry Furniture and Appliances on Fourth Street in Steubenville shows off some stoves that will be in use during this year’s Taste of Home Cooking School planned Tuesday at the Serbian-American Cultural Center in Weirton. The event, presented by the Herald-Star and The Weirton Daily Times, will feature Taste of Home culinary specialist Michael Barna. Doors open at 4:30 p.m., and the show, featuring 10 dishes prepared on stage by Barna, begins at 7 p.m. The cooking school is sponsored in cooperation with Weirton Medical Center, Create-A-Room and Hancock County Savings Bank, with support from M&M Hardware, Frank and Jerry, Kroger Hollywood City Center and the Steubenville Wal-Mart. Tickets start at $10 for general admission. Preferred seating is $20, and a VIP experience is available for $45. Those who purchase VIP tickets will be entitled to attend a special meet-and-greet reception with Barna, including refreshments, beginning at 4:30 p.m. at the cultural center’s Tesla Lounge; receive a free autographed copy of “Taste of Home Best Loved Recipes;” and have reserved seating in the front of the auditorium. A limited number of VIP packages are still available, and are being sold on a first-come, first-served basis. All those attending will receive a goody bag, including Taste of Home magazines, coupons and samples. Doors to the event will open at 4:30 p.m., and ticketholders will be able to visit several area vendors who are part of the event. Tickets are available for purchase at the newspaper office at 401 Herald Square in Steubenville; the Weirton Shop ‘n Save; and M&M Hardware on Sunset Boulevard in Steubenville.
