“While there are many groups that conduct cooking schools, we believe our Dinner Tonight Healthy Cooking School has a unique niche,” states Carrie T. Brazeal with Texas AgriLife Extension Service, a sponsor of the event. “Our recipes are cost effective, easy to prepare and fit into a healthy meal plan.  We are targeting busy people who still want to make time for meal preparation and feel good about what they are serving their families as well as themselves. Our goals are to promote family meal time and teach families healthy meal planning and food preparation techniques.”

Other sponsors include The Cooper Institute ®, Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital Dallas, Market Street, and Aaron’s.
