TAVARES – The University of Florida’s Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences (UF/IFAS) Extension in Lake County is hosting a course on “Summer Slow Cooker Meals” from 5:30 - 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, July 24 at Lake County Agricultural Center, 1951 Woodlea Road, Tavares.
“It sometimes seems hard to prepare a healthy dinner when the weather is hot and everyone is busy with summer activities,“ said Julie England, Family and Consumer Sciences Agent with the UF/IFAS Extension in Lake County, who will be presenting the class. “With this course, you’ll learn that spending a little time in the morning can pay off in a big way when you come home to a cool home and a healthy, delicious meal.”
England’s program will show how slow cookers aren't just for winter soups and stews, and will include a discussion of slow cooking techniques and a tasting of a variety of dishes that will appeal to the entire family.
Class size is limited and registration is required by July 21 by signing up online at https://summercook2014.eventbrite.com or by calling 352-343-4101 ext. 2719. The course costs $15.
