The Taste Cooks!
Hosted by TV Tacoma's Amanda Westbrooke
The Taste Cooks! is a NEW interactive and high energy live cooking entertainment showcase located at the north end of the festival. Join emcee Amanda Westbrooke as she hosts a selection of Tacoma’s finest chefs and local culinary experts who will spice up the stage with creative programming segments and cooking demonstrations. Local chefs will compete in a Taste Cook Off!, where they will be given three mystery ingredients, a small pantry of basic cooking staples and leave it up to the audience to judge their final entrée. The winner will be crowned The Taste Cooks Master! All demonstrations will be done on a fully-equipped stage provided by Viking.
The Taste Cooks! is headed by host and emcee Amanda Westbrooke of TV Tacoma. We're excited to welcome Amanda and know that her fun personality and passion for anything culinary will add a lot to this venue.
