Platillos in Leopold Square are to stage their next Delicioso food and wine event tomorrow. The theme is Sicilian and five tapas courses feature – including bean fritters with Sicilian sauce, stuffed sardines and chocolate and almond tart – with five wines chosen to complement the flavours. It’s £30 a head.

Sharrow residents can learn a tasty tapas recipe or three at a Healthy Cookalong class at the Old Junior School on South View Road tomorrow, 6-8pm. It costs £2 (children £1) and you get to eat what you’ve cooked. Contact Lu on creativeactionnetwork@googlemail.com to book a place. Advanced cooking classes start after half term.

Instead of roast beef, try a Morroccan-style Sunday lunch, suggests Sharrowvale Road restaurateur Otto Damahi. He’s opening on Sunday lunchtimes to tempt families. Moroccan dishes are on the menu - seafood salads, traditional lamb couscous, pea soup and meatballs - although Otto would love to get stuck in to the most traditional of Moroccan family favourites, a whole roast lamb with a host of side dishes. “I’d need a party of 20 to make it possible,” he says. Three courses cost £12.50, there’s a pianist and it’s take your own wine.

CATCH are holding a Shellfish Tasting Extravaganza on March 2.

The Crosspool fish restaurant will be dishing up oysters and caviar, lobster bisque with lemon grass, Smithy’s crab cakes, a mini tasting of potted shrimps, mussels, crayfish, tiger prawn, risotto nero and roast scallops, plus a tasting of desserts, for £50.

Expand your wine palate at Le Bistrot Pierre’s wine and dine event on March 2. A three-course set dinner menu will be served with three specially-chosen wines by the glass, for £26.90.

Henderson’s Relish is to star in a new TV cookery show.

Chefs Allegra McEvedy and Matt Trebutt will be marinating a beef with it in a Yorkshire episode of new series, Market Kitchen: Big Adventure, on the BBC’s Good Food Channel. The show, which airs in April, travels across Britain’s culinary landscape to search out great produce and ingredients. Womersley Fruit and Herb Vinegars, which are made at Womersley Hall, Doncaster, also feature.
