cooking class recs

I recommend Didi Emmons, a local fixture. Personable, with a smart perspectives on sustainability and foraging etc., the class should be a blast.

So, what would be other chowhound worthy alternative picks?
I'm sure we can come up with a somewhat more wallet-friendly and equally interesting list.

Suggestions for what to do with a quart of bacon fat?

Is bacon fat suitable for confit? Or is it too strong and assertive?
What other ideas do you have?
Also how long can it last in the fridge?

Where else can one find a very good bowl of Bun Rieu besides Xinh Xinh?

Boston's best salads? A round up

Kale salad was by far the best thing i had amongst the 9 plates i tried at Alden and Harlow. Too bad, about half of them were marred by oversalting.

Oya Cuban Cafe in Malden: Strong on Value and Comfort

Agree with Treb - the Arroz Imperial con Maduros is quite an underwhelming dish. The name was the only impressive thing about it. Had it for lunch awhile back. I suspect it's one of their weak spots.

Thanks for the recommendation. Tried the oxtail and browned chicken with gravy and both were delicious. Looking forward to their patties and jerk pork and chicken as well as curried goat.

Gene's Chinese Flatbread Coming to Boston

Your snide comment is uncalled for. Had no idea that i was supposed to follow the advice of Chowhounder 'experts' to the t like you or risk such remarks. The board above the register did not state that the noodle soup was made of regular non-hand pulled noodles and i was in the mood for noodle soup.

Gene's Chinese Flatbread Coming to Boston

Made the mistake of getting No.5 which is the spicy noodle soup with bits of pork and what looked like frozen peas and carrots. Thought that perhaps the amount of noodles used was too much. The broth was ok. (not really spicy-did they alter the broth for the downtown lunch crowd?) but disappointed that noodles were not the hand-pulled variety. Cumin lamb skewer was flavorful but a tad dry and chewy. Not sure what the hype and excitement is all about.
