Love food? Love to cook? Well do I have an event for you in Branson! As a kid I remember parts of my family either visiting Branson or passing through (and we always had to stop to sight see) on our way to somewhere else. Most of the time we stopped to see the theater performances and once in a while we’d check out the theme park. I would love to go back now that I’m older and check out some more grown up events and attractions or even take our twins when they are a little older to experience the fun Branson has to offer.
Experience Hilton style the weekend of October 16th and 17th at the Hilton Branson Convention Center Hotel’s Cooking School Weekend at the Hilton Branson Convention Center Hotel!
Guests will be welcomed upon arrival to a sumptuous Wine Tasting Reception followed by a cooking demonstration with the Hotel’s very own Chef Nathan Read the next morning as he teaches participants how to prepare the appetizers served at the Wine Tasting.
Saturday evening participants will experience a lavish four-course dinner that will be paired with appropriate wines and will also learn how to prepare the featured meal the following morning. So be prepared to wow your family and friends this season as the menus will prepare you to be the perfect holiday host or hostess!

Just check out that menu! I would love to learn how to cook some new and different food to kind of spice things up a little bit and change from our usual routine. I’m too afraid to just go out and get a recipe myself and try it because I know I will mess it up and it won’t taste the same.. but if I could learn to cook it from a professional chef.. I’d be good to go! It would also be a nice little getaway for my husband and I to go to an event like this because we’d get some quality time together and cooking together can be a very romantic thing to do!
This one-of-a-kind package also includes deluxe accommodations at the Hilton Branson Convention Center Hotel for two people Friday and Saturday evening all for just $398.00 plus tax for both nights!

The Hilton Branson Convention Center Hotel is within easy driving distance of Branson’s championship golf courses, lakes, museums and 49 live entertainment theaters. With so much to offer, this exciting vacation community is perfect for everyone!
When we travel now, we always stay at a Hilton. We’ve always had the best service at a Hilton and they seem to have the cleanest rooms than any other hotel we’ve stayed at. My husband always talks about how nice the employees are too… and they are very friendly and will do anything they can to help you out.. even at 3 a.m. in the morning! We had car trouble one night, don’t ask me what we were doing out so late but we were.. but the employees were there to help us figure out where to get it fixed and did everything they could to make sure we were ok.
