The Illinois Valley's premier cooking and drink festival was at Celebrations 150 in LaSalle Saturday November 9th. Over 300 people sampled, sipped and shopped more than 25 vendors. Chef Guy made 7 dishes live on stage, sang and danced to the delight of fans from as far away as Kansas. Folks learned how to make and pair holiday appetizers and wine with Hy-Vee, "Pizza Like a Pro" with U.S. Foods and enjoyed Dessert Time with Chef Charlie from Pleasant View. Once again John's Service & Sales gave away the appliances used in the show as awesome door prizes. The GE Profile double oven convention range went to Diane Spanier of Mendota. The counter top microwave was won by Kristi Wirth of Wyanet, and Celia Morelos of Bolingbrooks won the Whirlpool refrigerator. Congratulations to all our winners and thanks to our sponsors and everyone who came out.
