Williams-Sonoma at Utica Square will offer a cooking demonstration featuring recipes from physician and author Andrew Weil's new cookbook 10 a.m.-7 p.m. Thursday.
It's a sneak peek, of sorts, of Weil's visit to the area next week as a guest lecturer for Tulsa Town Hall, 10:30-11:30 a.m. Nov. 16 in the Tulsa Performing Arts Center's Chapman Music Hall, Third Street and Cincinnati Avenue.
Weil, one of the world's foremost authorities on health, wellness and integrative medicine, will lead a presentation titled "Optimum Health: Maximizing the Body's Own Healing Systems."
Named one of "the world's 100 most influential people" by Time magazine, Weil is the director of the Arizona Center for Integrative Medicine at the University of Arizona's College of Medicine. His philosophy is that mainstream and alternative medicines are equally important and should be utilized in conjunction with each other.
Associates at Williams-Sonoma, including Tracy Olomi, will pick a couple of recipes from Weil's cookbook, "True Food: Seasonal, Sustainable, Simple, Pure."
The Williams-Sonoma event is free and open to the public. For more, call the store, 918-742-5252.
