More than 120 people, primarily senior citizens, attended the Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service Dinner Tonight! Healthy Cooking School senior brunch held recently at the San Antonio Garden Center.
“While we have the word ‘dinner’ in our program, we have healthful and easy recipes for all times of the day and for all age groups,” said Angie Gutierrez, AgriLife Extension family and community wellness agent, Bexar County. “At this event, we chose to serve lighter brunch items that are easy for seniors to prepare.”
The Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service and San Antonio Botanical Garden will present the Incredible Edible Insect Event at 10:30 a.m. and again at noon on Oct. 20.
The four-course insect tasting will be held at the San Antonio Botanical Garden, 555 Funston Place in San Antonio.
“This will be a journey into entomophagy or the eating of insects,” said Molly Keck, AgriLife Extension integrated pest management specialist, Bexar County. “There will be four chef-demonstrated recipes featuring insect-based ingredients, along with discussions about the sustainability and nutritional value of insects.”
