The Real Men Cook have almost 1,500 cooks across the country. In Dallas, there are 150 cooks who give up their Father's Day to prepare a feast for the community that showcases their family recipes and they volunteer their time with mentoring and culinary camps. The money they raise goes to charities across the U.S.
