Located along the greenbelt on Fair Oaks Avenue, the library at Conrad High School (DISD) was well designed, serene with plenty of natural light. The high school opened in 2006 with only freshman and sophomore classes, this year will include all four grades and begin the Restaurant Management magnet program. What you can't see in the photo above is their need for more books, especially cook books to use as reference resources. This school does not have a PTA (yet) as a resource, and with the culinary "love" that the city of Dallas shares, I was hoping that neighbors who have a few extra, unused, unloved cook books lying around might donate them. If this is YOU, please bring them by the restaurant, we'll take it from there. Many thanks.
Coming soon to Conrad will be the Conrad Culinary Club, which will explore the relationship between food and other subjects (journalism, art, science, math) with some of Dallas' top food professionals, and exposing students to flavors and cuisines that might be new (I'll be busy contacting those chefs and begging/blackmailing/coercing them soon). AND, since the ethnic background of the students spans over 36 countries, they'll be busy producing a Heck-of-a-cookbook themselves.
