Best known for the restaurants that bear his name, chef Johnny Carino will be in Victoria Wednesday at the Junior League of Victoria 5th annual Gourmet Soiree. “Holiday Cooking Italian Style” is the appropriate theme for the luncheon and cooking demonstration as Carino touts the merits of home cooking. Tickets are $50 and available at Days Gone Bye, 508 N. Moody St., and Lauren Bade, 221 S. Main St. The event will be held at the Victoria Country Club from noon until 2 p.m. Proceeds benefit the Junior League's charitable programs. The fundraiser is underwritten by The Cooking Depot of Cuero. For more information, contact Erin Hatley at
