Do you love watching cooking shows on TV? Well, The Taste Cooks! presented by Albert Lee Appliance brings that kind of fun & excitement to a live stage featuring a selection of Tacoma and the Greater Seattle area's finest chefs. The Taste Cooks!  is located at the north end of the festival and hosted by Amanda Westbrooke, from TV Tacoma.

Cooking Demos:

Each day local chefs will perform cooking demonstrations of some of their favorite dishes and guests will have the opportunity to get a copy of recipe to try at home!

Mystery Ingredient Cook-Offs:

Who will be named The Taste Cooks! Master? Local Chefs will go head to head in mystery ingredient cook-offs! For the cook-offs, chefs will be given 3 mystery ingredients, a small pantry of basic cooking staples and only 30 minutes to make their dish. Then they will leave it up to the audience to judge their final entrée.
