What's Cooking at the Home + Remodeling Show

If the kitchen is the heart of the house, then this year’s Home + Remodeling Show will feature a new heartbeat with a cooking stage to tantalize taste buds during the weekend.

With so many of our exhibitors showcasing kitchen remodeling ideas, cabinets, and fixtures, we thought we would bring a cooking element into the show. You’ll be able to learn some new recipes from top restaurant chefs, a talented butcher,  an award winning baker and a well-rounded cooking school culinarian.

Cooking Stage

Friday is our Family Day so we’re cooking for kids that day. Chef Jenna from Cookology,a cooking school located in the Dulles Town Center Mall, will be on stage Friday, January 22 at 1 pm. Cookology believes that everyone, with a little practice, can make healthy, delicious meals. Its chefs get inspiration from the latest trends in food and wine to bring truly entertaining classes that fit a family budget and encourage families/couples/singles to cook, eat and enjoy fantastic food. Chef Jenna will prepare kid friendly items that the little ones can take back to the family kitchen. 

Lauren Katz, the recent winner of ABC’s The Great Holiday Baking Show, is appearing Saturday January 23 at 2 pm and Sunday January 24 at 2 pm.   She is a completely self-taught baker and credits her mother’s lack of culinary skills as one of the main reasons she took up the hobby.  With a background in fine art, Lauren showcased her artistic personality while baking with her elaborate and finely detailed decorations clinching the win.  A self-described perfectionist, she is constantly challenging herself to come up with bigger and better bakes.  When not in the kitchen, Lauren loves pottery, exercising, and reading.  Lauren is a stay at home mother of three and looks forward to sharing her special Tangerine Chai Cookie recipe with everyone at the Home + Remodeling Show.
