"We had so many great vendors with lots of different things for people to see, try and especially buy," said Coats. "There really was something for everyone."
Given the reaction to this year's event, Coats said he's looking forward to bringing it back to Plattsburgh next year.
"We've had a lot of great feedback and a lot of people asking us to bring it back next year," said Coats. "We want to expand it even more and bring in more great local vendors like we had this year, maybe do some more giveaways. We're going to work to make it even bigger and better."
"I really want to thank the City of Plattsburgh Recreation Department for doing such a great job helping us host this event and all our fine sponsors," said Coats. "But, most of all, I want to thank everyone who came out to Taste of Home. They made this a true success."
The Taste of Home Cooking School was sponsored locally by Denton Publications, specifically the 'burgh, North Countryman and Valley News; Price Chopper, Wilson's Appliance Center, Kool 105, WOKO 98.9, and WJOY AM1230. The event was sponsored nationally by Chex, Campbell's, Gallo Family Vineyards, King Arthur, Kitchen Basics, Morton Salt and Pillsbury Refrigerated Pie Crust.
