Learn to Make Mozzarella, Lunch in 30 and Cupcakes for Earth Day in Today's Eater's Digest

An early morning serving of food news, with no preservatives or additives.

Sunday cooking school is back in session. Boa Bistro wants to teach you how to make mozzarella and school you in "vegetarian how to's", a complete 180 from their first class in bunny butchery. The class is scheduled for Sunday, April 25th from 11 a.m to 1 p.m.

The $55 price tag includes your choice of cocktail, frittata, lunch and you will be given the opportunity to taste everything made. Space is limited, call 480-981-2000 to reserve your spot.

Boa Bistro and Caffe Boa have also introduced the new 30 minute lunch. Both restaurants are guaranteeing to get you in and out within 30 minutes (from the time you place your order) or lunch is on the house. The three course meal consists of soup or salad, entrée plus dessert to go.This deal is offered Monday - Friday from 11 a.m. till 2 p.m. for $19. (We love this idea -- St. Francis already does it well.)

In support of Earth Day 2010, Sprinkles Cupcakes will be donating 100 percent of the proceeds from the sale of their special tree-adorned vanilla cupcakes to the Desert Botanical Garden. The special cupcakes will be available now through April 23rd. (Not to be picky, but we wonder why a tree and not a cactus cupcake?)

Over the next few months, the folks (or folk) at eatmedaily.com are working on a chronological guide to American gastronomy, a series in which they will enlighten you on all the craziness from the last several decades. They are starting things off in the 1950's when a woman's dream was to have a kitchen that would bake cakes on its own and even finish it off with candles.
