Tampa isn’t unknown to the Food Network. Guy Fieri has visited a few times over the years, and local chefs even made appearances on the network last year. And on Saturday, Oct. 17, Tampeños get another taste thanks to Geoffrey Zakarian and Oxford Exchange.

That’s when Zakarian—a Food Network personality, “Chopped” judge and co-host of the network’s show “The Kitchen”—joins his daughters Madeline and Anna to show all of us beginner cooks how it’s done along during a virtual cooking demonstration this weekend hosted by Oxford Exchange. The demo highlights the family’s upcoming cookbook “The Family that Cooks Together.”

The Zakarians will let attendees in on a few secrets like what it’s like growing up with a famous dad, plus cooking tips and tricks they’ve learned along the way. Easy-to-follow instructions for the young girls ensure everyone can master the various desserts and savory breakfasts.

Check your wifi signal before the event starts this Saturday at 10 a.m. Ticket prices range between about $27-$108. Attendees can secure a spot through Eventbrite, and the cookbook is available for pre-order on oxfordexchange.com.
