Texas Book Fest Cooking Demo Form


Thank you for joining us in the H-E-B / Central Market Cooking Tent at the 2022 Texas Book Festival in Austin, November 5–6! We’re thrilled to have you demonstrate recipes from your book. In order to make sure that H-E-B / Central Market and additional partners and volunteers can prep all ingredients and equipment for your demo, this form MUST be completed no later than Friday, October 7

When selecting recipes, please note:

  • You will have 45 minutes for your demo, so please do not select more recipes than you can demo in that amount of time. There will not be an oven on stage.
  • Samples will not be offered to the audience, due to City of Austin health codes.
  • Recipes should be approachable by a typical Texas household. Home cooks should be able to reproduce these recipes with ingredients found on the shelves of H-E-B / Central Market or any standard supermarket.
  • H-E-B / Central Market will work to accommodate all ingredient requests, within reason.

For questions, please contact Matthew Patin via phone (832) 788-9298 (text first, please) or via email Matthew@texasbookfestival.org.
