Healthy Cooking Series

In partnership with the UT Culinary Institute, Be Well is happy to announce the sponsorship of a series of healthy cooking classes. The classes are offered to UT employees free of charge to educate the community and share new and healthy culinary tips. Unless otherwise noted, classes are held at the UT Visitor’s Center.

Class spaces are very limited so registration is on a first come, first serve basis until all available spots are filled.  Available classes are listed below. Registrations will open 3 weeks before the class time.
