Just across the Golden Gate Bridge, the ~COOKING SCHOOL AT CAVALLO POINT~ is hosting some unique classes, including In My Kitchen: Ayurvedic Journey to the Soul with Nalini Mehta on Saturday February 19th (1pm-5pm), $125 plus tax; and on Wednesday February 23rd, it’s SF Food Cart Wednesday with Azalina’s Handmade, a hands-on class featuring some incredible-sounding Malaysian dishes, like Rendang Ayam (Marin Sun Farms chicken cooked with cinnamon and star anise). 6pm-8:30pm, $65 plus tax.

For those of you who sometimes wish my family would adopt you, you can come to ~PURCELL MURRAY~ this Saturday February 19th for an event with Rosetta Costantino, of the recently released cookbook, My Calabria, Rustic Family Cooking from Italy’s Undiscovered South. The afternoon will include demos, conversation with Rosetta, and tastings of recipes that include polpette di melanzane (crispy eggplant “meatballs”), pan-fried sausage and broccoli rabe, potatoes and artichokes served with roasted lamb, and torta di noci (flourless walnut cake). $45. Call 415-330-5557 to reserve your space. 11am-1pm. 185 Park Lane, Brisbane.
