During the months of September and October, 2016, The Texas Department of Agriculture offered select schools across the state of Texas the opportunity to host a cooking demonstration for students. Schools were selected based on their interest and ability to provide kitchen equipment onsite (from a culinary class) for this assembly type event. TDA encouraged the selected schools to make the event accessible to as many students as possible.
Local “celebrity” chefs, chosen and provided by TDA, demonstrated cooking techniques and nutritional information in a fun and engaging manner. The demonstration featured a meal that is served on campus using Texas ingredients, as this opportunity is part of the Farm Fresh Fridays
campaign. Click on the links below to read about some of the 2016 demos!
