WEATHERFORD – The 2018 Health Cooking School, in conjunction with Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service’s Dinner Tonight and Path to the Plate programs, will be held Oct. 23 in Weatherford.

“We want to invite everyone to join us for a fun, exciting evening showcasing live cooking demonstrations with delicious samples, recipes and cooking tips,” said Kathy Smith, AgriLife Extension family and community health agent for Parker County. “They will also learn how to prepare easy, nutritious and economical meals at home.”

Smith said local agricultural commodities will be featured throughout the evening “as we connect agricultural production to health and nutrition. We will talk about the important role agriculture plays in providing proper nutrition and dispel some common myths about the production of our food supply.”

There will be door prizes, vendors and healthy cooking handouts also, she said.
