Thursday night at the Hotel Fredonia in Nacogdoches, culinary specialist Jamie Dunn with the Taste of Home Cooking School will be cooking up 10 recipes on stage during a great night of entertainment.  The delicious dishes are the main staple of the annual event, but there are many other great reasons to attend. 

The doors will open at 4 and the cooking show will get underway at 6:30 p.m.   Before the show gets underway, you'll receive a free goody bag full of great gifts, plus there will be sampling going on from Gallo Family Vineyards and Budweiser will be on hand serving up their new 'Straw-ber-rita'.

We'll also have sampling from restaurants like Hotel Fredonia, Appleby Sand Mercantile, Cotton Patch, The Niche, Pinto Pony, Whataburger, Posado’s, and Papa Johns Pizza.

How would you like to go for free?!  Just leave your name in the comment section below and we'll be drawing for tickets around 10 Thursday morning.  Each winner will receive two free passes to the show which will be waiting at the door of the Fredonia.

And here's just a glimpse at some of the dishes to be prepared:
