Why I Love the Hail Caesar Event

The proceeds of this amazing event go to support the Days of Taste Program, a culinary and nutrition educational experience that introduces 4th and 5th graders to the basics of how food gets from the farm to the table at the Dallas Farmer’s Market. It’s a program I’ve been intimately involved with for nearly 6 years now and it is by far the best kids education program around. Want to know more? www.aiwf.org/dallasftworth.

In the mean time, come out and support the event! It’s a blast and you’ve never tasted such creative, innovative and unique Caesar Salads before!
