Learn how to make a couple of Nebraska favorites — kolaches and dumplings, to be exact — at a cooking class coming this fall.
On Oct. 20, Carol Niemann Louis will teach a class on how to make traditional kolaches and potato dumplings.
The class, which will take place at 10:30 a.m. at the Czech and Slovak Educational Center and Cultural Museum, will feature her award-winning recipes made with yeast dough. The $25-a-person cost includes the class, a free beverage and food, including pork roast, potato dumplings and sauerkraut.
Seating is limited. To get more information or to register, visit the museum, which is open on weekends at 7400 Dodge St. inside the Crossroads Mall.
Omaha's best pizza: Sarah Baker Hansen lists 8 of the top pies
I have lots of favorite pizzas in Omaha; anyone who loves food knows that our city is a bit crazy for this particular food. I've seen people actually get into arguments over the merits of Mama's versus La Casa. (Full disclosure: I'm on Team La Casa.)
This is just a small selection of the pizza joints I've reviewed during the past few years, plus a link to one of the best, most comprehensive Food Prowls we ever conducted.
