Dorothy Dean Home Cooking Show on Saturday

For five decades, Dorothy Dean was a trusted family friend who showed newspaper readers how to put the comfort in comfort food. Long before microwaves, online recipes and 24-hour cooking networks, she was essential, practical and always reliable. She wasn't real. But that didn't make her any less beloved. Dorothy Dean actually was the pen name for the editors who ran The Spokesman-Review's Dorothy Dean Homemakers Service, from 1935 to 1983. The Dorothy Dean column offered budget-friendly recipes that were easy to prepare.

The Dorothy Dean Home Cooking Show is this Saturday, May 12 at the Convention Center with an great lineup of top chefs and authors. You'll meet:

Chad White, who competed on season 13 of Bravo's 'Top Chef' and now owns a restaurant downtown, Zona Blanca.

Laurel Randolph, bestselling author of 'The Instant Pot Electric Pressure Cooker Cookbook: Easy Recipes for Fast & Healthy Meals.' Her just-released book is 'The Instant Pot No Pressure Cookbook.'

John State, Culinary Director for the Disneyland Resort in Anaheim, Calif.

Kathleen Flinn, award-winning author of three books, best known for The New York Times best-selling memoir, 'The Sharper Your Knife, the Less You Cry.'

Kate Lebo, author of the cookbook 'Pie School' and co-editor of the anthology 'Pie & Whiskey: Writers Under the Influence of Butter and Booze.'

Poole's Breaks Ground on Future Location

Poole's Public House broke ground last week on the vacant lot just 75 feet to the west of their current north side location. Approaching the end of their five-year lease and knowing the land next to their location was for sale, Scott and Lisa Poole decided to jump on the opportunity to purchase the lot and construct their own building. "We are thrilled to provide more seating and most importantly more parking for our customers with this expansion. We'd like to thank our amazing loyal customers, without them this wouldn't be possible," said Scott & Lisa Poole, owners of Poole's Public House.

The Poole's are working with Baker Construction, Mercier Architecture & Planning and STCU on the project. They hope to be completed and moved in by the end of September. Jeff McGougan of NAI Black, Inc. handled the transaction.
