Tastes Like Childhood

October means pumpkins, hot apple cider, fall leaves, and sweaters. Since South Florida is hardly the setting of the typical Norman Rockwell autumn, we locals must make a stretch for that classic fall experience. Chef Michael Wagner, owner of the award-winning restaurant, Lola’s on Harrison, wants to help. From 6 to 8 p.m. this Tuesday, he’ll be teaching a Fall Comfort Food cooking class at the Whole Foods Market Lifestyle Center (2000 N. Federal Hwy., Fort Lauderdale). Chef Wagner defines comfort food as, “warm, approachable, common Classic American cuisine … that people feel good when they eat.” It brings them “back to a time and place,” he explains, often reminding them of childhood. The class costs $25, but a belly full of fall’s golden warmth (and the ability to recreate it at home all season long) may very well be priceless. Call 954-565- 4138 to register, or for more information.
