Firriato Wine Dinner
What's better than an evening of sipping Sicilian wines? Pairing all that vino with four courses of Mediterranean fare prepared by chef Sabrina Tinsley. For connoisseurs and novices alike, a brief explanation will introduce each course, including breaded and pan-fried aged ricotta served with lemon chili marmalade, fennel pollen–infused tagliolini with Sicilian sardine sauce and smoked duck roulade with eggplant and cacao caponata. The evening begins at 6pm at Osteria la Spiga. Tickets are $94 each.
Mar 22–Apr 7
Plate of Nations
Seattle's Rainier Valley is, in a word, delicious. Plate of Nations, an annual two-week-long celebration of southeast Seattle's culinary heritage, kicks off Friday to honor the region's diverse cuisine the best way one can—by eating it. Participating restaurants will offer $20 and $30 shareable platters designed to give diners a taste of home, be that the American South, Ethiopia, or the Thai-Laos border. Grab a "passport" and collect stamps from all participating restaurants to be entered into a prize drawing.

Phorale Grand Reopening
When this counter tucked into a South Park bodega shuttered last year, Seattle lost a) one of our favorite baskets of fries and b) a fusion joint unlike any other. But as of this Saturday Phorale will sling its Vietnamese fusion favorites again, and this time its walk-up will live not in the back of a market, but on four wheels. Which is to say: Phorale has a food truck. The reopening celebration will kick off Saturday afternoon at 3 at Bar Ciudad in Georgetown (what's a party without cocktails, after all?), but expect to find Phorale roving the Emerald City's streets henceforth.

Cook and Eat with Jørn
If your home-cooking repertoire could use a little more hygge, look no further than local chef Jørn Mathiasen. Mathiasen will teach Danish cuisine enthusiasts and novices the art of salt-curing turkey breast, simmering a Skagen fish soup, and preparing an overraskelse dessert (that's Danish for "surprise"). The cooking class costs $35 per head, and attendees must reserve their spot by March 20.

Woodshop BBQ Popup
Support Seattle kids of all racial, economic, and social backgrounds by...eating barbecue? Yes! Wood Shop BBQ will pop up Tuesday in Coyote, a Central District youth arts organization aimed at fostering kids' creativity and confidence, to benefit the nonprofit's programming. A $65 ticket buys attendees a savory four-course meal and hors d'oeuvres, plus beer and wine. And even though things are guaranteed to be meaty (smoked chorizo! pork ribs! sausage!), there's a vegetarian option too.
