SLOW U: Cooking with Nonna, Cenone di Natale ($45) Astor Center November 30 Who cooks better than Italian Grandmas? Not too many people, according to Rossella Rago, host of the online cooking show, Cooking With Nonna. Join Rago, accompanied by Nonna Romana Sciddurlo and Nonna Anna Buonsante, both natives of Puglia, as they take you through a traditional "Cenone di Natale," the five-course Pugliese Christmas Eve menu. Each course will be paired with a wine from Long Island's Borghese Vineyard & Winery.

How to Eat Sushi Jewel Bako November 30 Think you're a big man for saturating your soy sauce with wasabi? Wrong. Still believe tuna belly is the best piece of fish on the menu? Think again. As America's only Sushi Concierge, Trevor Corson can set you straight. His weekly classes on sushi etiquette, history, and mastery will ensure that you don't embarrass yourself at your next omakase. Plus, you'll discover that eating sushi doesn't have to mean devouring endangered species. Kampai to that.
