UTSW, Dallas Arboretum partner to launch ‘A Tasteful Place’
UT Southwestern Medical Center is partnering with the Dallas Arboretum and Botanical Garden to celebrate the opening of its new edible display garden, A Tasteful Place, which opened this month.
Inspired by the movement toward sustainability and healthy living, the 3.5-acre garden will include an orchard, herbs and flowers, a picnic lawn, walking trails, and a pavilion with an event space and teaching kitchen. Throughout the year, A Tasteful Place will offer horticulture presentations, parent-child cooking classes, recipe tastings, garden-to-table dinners, and nutrition presentations.
Beginning this month and occurring each Saturday through Nov. 4, members of UT Southwestern’s School of Health Professions, in connection with the Center for Human Nutrition, will offer nutrition presentations on a variety of topics. Presentations take place from 10-11 a.m. and are free with admission to the Dallas Arboretum. Here is a list of the upcoming presentations:
“Cultivating an Antioxidant-Rich Palate: How to Enjoy Nature’s Healthiest Foods”
“Fighting Cancer from Your Kitchen”
“Maximizing Flavor Using Mediterranean Herbs”
“The Gluten-Free Diet Craze: Friend or Foe?”
Michelle Pearlman, M.D., Fellow, Internal Medicine
