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.

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.

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.
