Calling all OKC Foodies

Mar 10, 2020, 17:08 PM

Oklahoma City foodies, rejoice! The OKC Home + Outdoor Living Show is putting on a whole weekend of live cooking demonstrations, hosted by chefs from some of your favorite local restaurants. Programming for the live cooking demonstrations is varied, so whether you’re coming to learn the basics, or you want to take on a major culinary challenge, you’ll find what you need here.  

The OKC Home + Outdoor Living Show returns March 27-29 and is setting up a fully functional kitchen set inside the Bennett Event Center at the Oklahoma State Fair Grounds. It will be complete with a staging area for chefs to prep the final versions of their dishes, and an overhead camera and screen so the live audience can catch every detail of these tasty creations! Best of all, each cooking demonstration will end with samples of their dishes, so come hungry.  

Dale and Carrie Spoonemore are among the presenters, and they bring something very special to the Cooking Stage. The Spoonemore family developed the ap “From Seed to Spoon” to help people grow their own food at home. Since 2015 the family has been eating their own home-grown food, all from a suburban back yard.! They’re coming to The OKC Home + Outdoor Living Show to discuss how they incorporate their own, freshly grown herbs into their cooking.

The Spoonmores are big proponents of making simple dishes special with fresh herbs. The couple recommends prioritizing chives and oregano because they are the two easiest herbs to grow, and the most versatile in your cooking. A simple plate of roasted veggies, mashed potatoes or scrambled eggs soar to new culinary levels with a few fresh cut herbs sprinkled on top. The couple has young children who have learned to appreciate vegetables thanks to their generous usage of herbs in their cooking.

The OKC Home +Outdoor Living Show’s Cooking Stage will have seating and each demonstration will last about an hour. There is no additional charge to attend any of the demonstrations, however they are very popular so consider arriving early to get a good seat.

Stay tuned for our official Cooking Stag Schedule and then start planning your visit to the show. We can’t wait to see you and your family March 27-29.
