EDEN - Grab your friends and join in the fun at the Dinner Tonight Healthy Cooking School, which will be presented by the Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service from 6-8 p.m. Thursday, May 11 at the Roy Burnes Civic Center just west of Eden on Highway 87.

“While there are many groups who conduct cooking schools, we believe the Dinner Tonight Healthy Cooking School has a unique niche,” said Dr. Susan Ballabina, Associate Director for Program Development for Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service.

During the cooking school, everyone will see demonstrations of quick and easy-to-make recipes from the Best of Dinner Tonight menu cards.

"The menu cards are divided into three main categories including entrées, sides, and desserts and perforated so you can mix and match your favorite Dinner Tonight menus– perfect for busy families. We are targeting busy people who still want to make time for meal preparation and feel good about what they are feeding themselves and their family. Our goals are to promote family mealtime, teach families healthy meal planning and food preparation techniques, and promote Texas agriculture,” Ballabina said.

This event is sponsored by the Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service and will feature local county extension agents and celebrity chef’s.

All participants will receive high quality menu cards, gift bag full of kitchen goodies, and a chance to win awesome door prizes. The cost of the cooking school is $15 for adults and $10 for youth.
