You said you were going to take a cooking class

Did you resolve to learn how to cook, or to expand your cooking repertoire. Area restaurants are rolling out a roster of them.

RA Sushi in Harbor East is reviving its popular Sushi 101 class on Sunday, January 30 at 2 p.m. This class includes a brief history of sushi, a sushi-rolling lesson, as well as a (non-alcoholic) beverage, miso soup, edamame, two maki, two pieces of nigiri, and a sushi rolling mat to take home. You also get a complimentary lunch card for a next-visit use. Reservations are required. $32/$60 per couple.

Da Mimmo -- A three-class schedule begins on Sunday, February 20. The other classes are scheduled for Sunday, March 27, and Sunday, April 17. There is a discount for signing up for all three in advance, but the basic cost is $67 per person. The first class will teach students how to make Tuscan onion soup; Orange & fennel salad; Veal Spiedini alla Siciliana; and creme caramel. Call (410) 727-6876 for more information. 

Donna's -- Donna Crivello's Wednesday-evening cooking classes, Cooking with Donna, are ongoing. On Wednesday, January 26, the topic is gluten-free Mediterranean; February 6 it's healthy pizza for parties.

If I forgot yours, please remind me, and of course, send some more my way, but I'm primarily interested in classes that take place in restaurant settings.

I hate to bring this up. However Mimmo passed away, and so did is restaurant. So who in the hell is giving cooking lessons? Don't do it sucker.

Sorry, that was a compliment to Mimmo. I meant "his" restaurant. A very good man. Those who really knew him, miss him. One of the last great Chefs in our so called Little Italy.
