The good folks at the Rockford Area Convention and Visitors Bureau (RACVB) have added all kinds of cool things to their website, including cooking demos to try while staying at home.

The RACVB has done a fantastic job of continuing to support the local community even though they, like the rest of us, are stuck staying at home.

If you head over to their website,, you'll find a lot of great things to help you get through this COVID-19 crisis we're all dealing with. From listing the area's great local restaurants and what they're doing to continue serving their customers, to a local songwriting contest, to a youth short film showcase, and even downloadable Rockford-centric coloring books, the RACVB has put up a lot of interesting and valuable information.

They've even added demos and recipes from Rockford area chefs and restaurants, like this cool one, featuring Chef Patrick Alberto from downtown restaurant Octane.
