What is this, the official week for announcing summer cooking classes?

Yesterday Cafe Lago and Delancey both broadcast schedules for forthcoming fun: Lago is hosting chat sessions centered on Italian culture and the Ballard pizzeria is bringing in local toques for everything from Moroccan street food to whole-hog butchering.

Now this morning, word arrives that Cornish College of the Arts will host several weekend workshops with Seattle notables: Art of the Pie’s Kate McDermott, Cakespy blogger Jessie Oleson, and Good Fish author Becky Selengut.

McDermott will do what she does best—make pie—and field trip it to the U District farmer’s market to help students select fillings. Selengut plans to tour choice spots for purchasing sustainable seafood. And the ever-creative Oleson swaps the usual art tools for cake, frosting, and food coloring.
