Free cooking class and dinner set in Dayton

Healthy Communities hosts free cooking classes in Dayton every month. Pictured here, Rebekah Stetson, Mylo McCormick and dietitian Kim Mason demonstrate how to cook a nutritious dish.

Pumpkin spice bars, cauliflower gold, crunch quinoa and apple salad are on the menu at a healthy cooking demonstration at 5:30 p.m. Nov. 20 at the Dayton Valley Community Center, 170 Pike St.

The demonstration, which will be followed by dinner, will feature dietitian Kim Mason and chef Cynthia Kroon.

The class is free, registration isn't required, and everyone is welcome.

The event will include information about metabolic syndrome, steps that can be taken to avoid it, and food therapy to treat it.

The free cooking demonstration is held on the third Monday of the month thanks to Healthy Communities Coalition of Lyon and Storey Counties. Menus incorporate USDA commodity food.
