Culinary specialist Kristi Larson has been cooking since she was 5 years old.

With many years of experience, Larson returns to Bakersfield's Taste of Home Cooking School to share new and easy recipes, just in time for the holiday season.

"I will be giving tips and tricks for faster and easier recipes as well as healthier," Larson said via phone Monday on "First Look with Scott Cox."

Larson will cook 10 recipes, from main dishes to desserts.

Simulcast host Scott Cox said he was a fan of the No. 1 cooking magazine in the world because the recipes are ones anyone can try.

When asked her favorite part of cooking in front of a crowd of about 1,500 people, Larson said it is the feedback she receives.

"I love to cook and so when I see people tell me they are trying new recipes in their own kitchen, that is the greatest feeling," Larson said.

Along with the live cooking demonstration, there will be a variety of kitchen gadgets available for purchase.

One of Larson's favorite and most popular gadgets is the silicone egg poach pod for the perfect eggs benedict.

"That's another thing I will be buying for my wife to join the other stuff that now sits in our cupboards," Cox said.

The event starts at 6 p.m. Nov. 12 at Rabobank Theater. Tickets are $15. For more information, visit taste.bakersfield.com.
