National cooking stars on stage in Niagara Falls culinary weekend

This weekend, the Niagara Holiday Market hosts Taste of the Season, an event-packed slate of cooking demonstrations and tasting tips from national food stars.

Sponsored by Wegmans, the free events include cooking demonstrations by Top Chef winner Kevin Sbraga (1 p.m. Sat., roast goose with cranberries, chestnuts and oranges) and Food Network host Roger Mooking (2 p.m. Sun., jerk shrimp with avocado puree) from "Everyday Exotic."

Wegmans chefs will demonstrate turkey brining (4 p.m. Sat.) and holiday braciola, or Italian roulades (4:30 p.m. Sun.).

Besides the ongoing European-style holiday market outside, there'll be wine tastings inside from local wineries, plus nibbles of Yancey's Fancy cheeses, Niagara Popcorn's chocolate-covered popcorn, Rosina meatballs and more from food companies.

Events are in the Conference Center Niagara Falls, 101 Old Falls St., Niagara Falls. Hours: Fri.-Sun., 11:30 a.m.-6 p.m.

Check out the website for more details.

Correction: Scheduled demonstrations by baker Zilly Rosen and cheesemakers Trystan and Max Sandvoss of First Light Farm and Creamery have been canceled by the organizers. A previous version of this article said they would be on stage Sat. and Sun.
