No matter how busy you are at work, it's always refreshing to leave for just an hour to have lunch. Of course, if you work at our office, you're just trying to escape the noontime odors of Lean Cuisine and microwavable mussels. We're not effing around. Microwavable mussels. Central Market understands how awesome it is to get away from coworkers and their nauseating meal selections, and that's why they offer cooking tutorials during lunch. At 12 p.m. today, head to the Dallas location for Learn at Lunch: Winter Oranges. You'll learn how to prepare a blood orange and radicchio salad, roasted chicken with orange sauce and an orange tart for dessert. The class costs $20, and there are plenty of seats still available. Save us some of that tart, please?

Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
