LIMA — Christmas is coming. Are you ready to have a house full of hungry people?

We can help with that.

The Taste of Home Cooking School and Expo is planned for Dec. 8 at Veterans Memorial Civic Center.

The expo, with vendors and booths, will be from 4 to 7 p.m. The cooking show will follow, with Chef Eric Villegas preparing dishes on stage and sharing with lucky members of the audience.

“As we looked to this year’s show, we basically for the first time targeted the chef,” said Bill Clinger, marketing director for The Lima News. “He was here two years ago, and he was a great chef and entertainer, and we wanted to bring him back to our show.”

This year’s show will be themed toward the holidays, with some ticket packages offering “Taste of Home Holidays and Celebrations.”

Ticket sales opened Oct. 1 at The Lima News. Individuals interested may stop by or clip a coupon from the newspaper for tickets to be mailed back.

General admission is $10, general seating is $20 (cookbook included), and VIP seating is $25 (reserved seats and cookbook). All attendees receive a goodie bag.
