What a WOK!

Cooks used shovels to stir fajita fixin’s on an oversized, homemade wok provided by Charles Malone during the Wok to Remember evening hosted by Cottonwood Church at the Dublin City Park on July 13. (Never fear, the volunteer chefs assured that the shovels were purchased to be cooking utensils and have never been used for any other purpose!) The industrial-grade equipment was fortunate as crowds filled the basketball court for an evening of food, fellowship and live music. Paul Gaudette | Citizen staff photo.
