Looking for an evening of entertainment and great food? Eager to learn some new recipes and culinary shortcuts? Have a look at the calendar of courses being offered at Publix Aprons Cooking School in Boca Raton, Florida. You’ll be wined and dined by some very fine chefs.
Don’t forget to pre select a designated driver, however, because numerous 3-4 ounce wine pours may render you unroadworthy. I can sip and resist so I’ll volunteer to be your companion chauffeur.
What I haven’t yet developed is a taste and resist relationship with food. When each bite is better than the last, who wants to put the brakes on? Here’s a peek at two of the best meals I’ve ever eaten.

- Aprons shares about 1,000 recipes.
- In between Aprons classes, I’ve been running back and forth to Farmer’s Table cooking classes with health conscious, warm and welcoming food guru Abigail Nagorski. I’ll feature some of her healthy plant-based recipes in upcoming JC posts.
- A side benefit of hanging out in cooking classes is meeting fellow foodies and getting them to reveal their favourite restaurants. If you’re near Palm Beach, you might want to try Marcello’s La Sirena in West Palm Beach. I tried and loved their
Bocconcini Tomato Basil appetizer
Sirena Salad, finely chopped mixed lettuces, mushrooms, red peppers, diced tomatoes & house dressing
Fettucine Bolognese, and
Grilled Branzino, with its crispy skin and a side of arugula, fennels and tomato. Mamma Mia!
