A couple of great foodie events happening in the next few days: Freshstreet's pop-up restaurant in Cleveland and Magdiale Wolmark's cooking class at the Hills Market.
Wanted to spotlight a couple of great foodie events happening in the next few days. First up, Freshstreet's Kenny Kim and Misako Ohno are taking their Japanese street food on the road to do a pop-up restaurant at Noodlecat in Cleveland.
The event is being billed as Freshstreet's Japanese Carnival, and for a $42 ticket price, diners can feast on favorite dishes like: bacon okonomiyaki crepes, bulgogi cheesesteak crepes, octopus takoyaki and pork cheek yakitori.
It's not to late to plan a quick day trip to Cleveland to be a part of all the fun! The event runs from 6:30-10:30 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 2, at Noodlecat, 234 Euclid Ave. in Clevelend.

And check back here for day-after coverage from Alive editor Kristen Schmidt, who's lucky enough to be tagging along with the Columbus Food Adventures folks to experience this firsthand.
If you'd rather not do the two-hour drive to Cleveland, the Hills Market is offering another chance to see one of the city's most exciting chefs in action. On Monday, the Worthington grocery store will host a cooking class led by Magdiale Wolmark, chef/owner of the former Dragonfly, now Till.
Monday's class will be a great opportunity to learn more about the ambitious new Till concept, which Wolmark has described as a more accessible take on his brand of biodynamic cooking. Notably, the new restaurant will serve meat (Dragonfly was stricly vegan).
The $35 class includes a one-hour cooking demo and then a three-course meal with wine pairings. Here's the menu (all dishes from Till's February menu):
--Potted Shiitake with Aspic
--Beef Tongue and Taleggio
-- Pudding Parfait
