The Orlando Home Show returns October 24-26 to the Orange County Convention Center. This three-day home improvement extravaganza is the ideal place to find fresh inspiration, helpful tips and innovative products for your next remodel or home improvement project.
The show will feature appearances by Chip and Joanna Gaines, hosts of HGTV’s Fixer Upper, and Todd Wilbur, author of Top Secret Recipes, daily how-to presentations by DIY experts, designer rooms, and a Sunday food truck rally from 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.
But the highlight of the show, at least in our books, will be the slew of fun culinary demonstrations happening on the Edible Orlando Cooking Stage where top local chefs and Elaine and David of TLC’s The Next Great Baker will give tips and ideas for upping your culinary savvy at home.
Guest can savor mouth-watering demonstrations and tasty samples prepared by some of the area’s favorite chefs and culinary pros throughout the weekend, including appearances by chefs from Hamilton’s Kitchen; Highball & Harvest; Cress Restaurant; The Wine Barn; Barnie’s CoffeeKitchen; The Oceanaire Seafood Room; and The Boheme.
Real Radio 104.1’s Dirty Jim appears on Sunday at 11:30 a.m. whipping up his favorite brunch recipe, while Edible Orlando Publisher Kendra Lott will be on hand to oversee the culinary festivities. (All stage presentations are subject to change without notice.)
