Jade Garden, a spot that's been around but flying under the radar of this site. Good renditions of Cantonese and seafood.

Garlic and Lemons in Allston would be a good choice too.

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?

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.

Pig feet with soup noodles is good.
