Pick a cooking class

The fall gets so busy, I wanted to share these before the calendar gets away from us:

Alyssa Gorelick of Chef Alyssa's Kitchen will offer these two as part of her Hands-On Cooking Class offerings at Atherton Market:
Nov. 14, Thanksgiving Sides (butternut squash with sage-hazelnut gremolata, chai-spiced carrots, Southern cornbread stuffing and green beans with wild mushrooms).
Dec. 11, Holiday Treats & Desserts (sweet potato gingerbread, candied pecans, pear crisp with caramel sauce and chocolate-peppermint bark).
Most of chef Alyssa's classes cost $55 to $60. Register and get details at

Food Love has these on the list; all are 6:30-9:30 p.m., held at The Kitch, 8305-D Magnolia Estates Dr., Cornelius and cost $85:
Oct. 15, A Taste of Autumn (only 2 spots left, so it might be filled up).
Nov. 5, A Journey to South America. 
Dec. 3, It's a Wonderful Bite.
Register and get details by calling Nikki Sawyer Moore, 704-576-6474 or go to

Bryant Terry, chef and author of the book "Vegan Soul Food," will give a talk about food justice and do a cooking demonstration at 6 p.m. Oct. 21 at Davidson College's Lilly Family Gallery. On Tuesday, Oct. 22, he'll host lunch in the college's Vail Commons dining hall from 11 a.m. to 1:45 for $10.25. (That means they'll feature his food in the dining hall between those time - you don't have to sit there for 3 hours and 45 minutes.)  Details and registration for the talk and demo: 704-894-2600.
