The queens of Chicago vegetarian cuisine, Karyn Calabrese, owner of Karyn’s Fresh Corner in Lincoln Park and Karyn’s Cooked in River North, and vegan columnist Kay Stepkin, former owner of Chicago’s first vegetarian restaurant, launch a series of raw and cooked vegan food preparation classes in Calabrese’s new state of the art studio kitchen. Students can build skills towards becoming a certified raw foods or vegan chef.

The first class, at 3 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 17, focuses on “Autumn in Italy,” featuring vegan Italian dishes and seasonal produce. The menu encompasses arugula beet salad, basil pesto radiatore, almond biscotti and hazelnut latte. The cost is $55 in advance or $75 on the day of the class.
