Get schooled

Wanna get schooled in vegan cooking? Here are a few options: On Tuesday, January 15, from 6 to 8:30 p.m., learn how to make Moroccan, Thai and Vietnamese curries in a hands-on class with instructor Shankari Easwaran at the Sacramento Natural Foods Co-op Community Learning Center and Cooking School (1914 Alhambra Boulevard,; $40-$49). Also at the center on Tuesday, January 29, from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m., Ron Russell of The Plum Cafe & Bakery will demonstrate raw-food basics ($35-$45). Russell also teaches classes at The Plum (2315 K Street, for $59 a session—like the “Raw Mexican Cuisine” class featuring avocado-cilantro soup and flan on Wednesday, January 30—if you really like it raw.
