The Dinner Tonight Cooking School targets busy people who are in search of quick, easy, delicious, and nutritious recipes that can be prepared at home. This cooking school will not only provide recipes but will also provide cooking demonstrations that will teach basic cooking concepts, techniques, and nutrition that can be used throughout the kitchen! Research has proven that cooking at home allows us to control calories, fat, sodium, and other key ingredients that tend to increase the risk of chronic disease such as diabetes, heart disease, high cholesterol, and high blood pressure. By lessening the risk of these chronic diseases, a healthier, longer life can be achieved!
