It's not a home without a kitchen, and it's not the Minneapolis Home + Garden Show without a Kitchen Stage! This year, the appliance specialists at Warners' Stellian are building a beautiful space and we have an all-star line-up prepared to demonstrate the best food and beverage recipes. From fire station favorites to mother/daughter dishes, the Warners' Stellian Kitchen Stage will be host to dozens of cooking demos. Take a seat and learn a new recipe from some of the area's best restaurateurs, chefs, cookbook authors, and media personalities. There will be plenty of sampling going on, so arrive hungry for food and entertainment!

Some of 2015's highlights will include:
  • Marjorie Johnson, the "Blue Ribbon Baker" who has won almost 3,000 State Fair Ribbons and has appeared on a number of talk shows, such as The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, The Rosie O'Donnell Show, and The View. She brought her homemade cooking to such events as the MLB All-Star Game, the NBA All-Star Game, the Emmy Awards, and the Grammy Awards. Marjorie will be sharing her baking finesse Thursday at 5pm and Saturday at 2pm.
  • James Beard Award winner, local Charlie Awards founder, and columnist for Minnesota Monthly, Sue Zelickson will be taking the stage Sunday at 1pm with chef Mike Rakun of Marin (in Le Meridien Hotel), as well as Mill Valley Kitchen.
  • Prepare for lots of laughter when WCOO-TV's Jason DeRusha cooks up a storm with his young sons Seth and Sam. Jason is a five-time Emmy Award winner, one of the Ten Outsanding Young Minnesotans as chosen by the Jaycees, and - let's not forget to mention - the city of Minneapolis proclaimed September 21 "Jason DeRusha Day".
  • Other notable presenters include: Sameh Wadi, owner of World Street Kitchen and Saffron, as well as 2013 Iron Chef contestant, Jack Riebel, executive chef of The Lexington, Corner Table's executive chef Thomas Boemer, and Go 96.3FM radio DJ Brian B.T. Turner.
