Saturday, April 20 Homemade Doughnuts at the Bowery Culinary Center Sign up for a doughnut-making class at the Bowery Culinary Center at Whole Foods.

Sunday, April 21 Indonesia Food Bazaar The Indonesia Food Bazaar returns to the Masjid Al-Hikmah Mosque in Queens on Sunday. The event happens sporadically during the spring and summer, and features authentic and hard-to-find dishes from Indonesia. Expect gudeg (stewed jackfruit), satays, and vegetable fritters called bakwan. Past fest-goers have been known to walk away stuffed to the gills while spending only a fraction of what folks dole out at Smorgasburg every weekend. 48-01 31st Ave., Astoria

Sweet Sensation Benefit for C-CAP Bakers and bloggers will come together at the Old Bowery Station to raise money for Careers through Culinary Arts Program, a non-profit that educates at-risk students.
