Anna Olson, host of Bake with Anna Olson on Food Network Canada, will host a baking seminar Oct. 24 at ‘Beyond’ the Kitchen Door.
She has included the downtown Courtenay business in her western swing of publicity appearances.
“We are so excited,” said ‘Beyond’ representative Sue Smith, who figures Olson is the biggest cooking celebrity to visit the Comox Valley. “It really is a great opportunity to meet someone of this calibre.”
Olson has penned five cookbooks. She will feature her latest, Back to Baking, at the seminar.
“Her expertise is in the baking area,” Smith said. “She was born a natural baker. She just has that touch.”
The event runs from 6 to 8 p.m. Olson will demo several recipes from the book, give holiday baking tips and answer questions. There will be appetizers and a beverage.
A $10 charge per person will help cover expenses.
