Healthy cooking school Sept. 21 in Marshall

MARSHALL – Residents are welcome to learn about using honey in health-conscious meals during a “Dinner Tonight Healthy Cooking School” Sept. 21 in Marshall.

The Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service event is sponsored by the Marshall Beekeeping Association and will feature easy, nutritious, cost-effective and tasty meals prepared with local honey, said Louraiseal McDonald, AgriLife Extension agent, Harrison County.

The program will be from 6-8 p.m. at the Summit United Methodist Church, 1901 East End Blvd. Early bird registration is $20 if paid by Sept. 14 and $25 thereafter.

“This is a great opportunity to learn about healthy cooking,” McDonald said. “Attendees will learn how to prepare the meals and then there will be a taste test following the demonstrations.”

McDonald said members of the Marshall Beekeeping Association will discuss the benefits and many health-related uses of honey. Greg Grant, AgriLife Extension agent, Smith County, will also discuss landscape plants that attract pollinators, including bees.

Door prizes will be presented. To register, contact the AgriLife Extension office in Harrison County at 903-935-8414.
