Foodie Whirlwinds 

North Bay Food Events for Aug. 8-Aug 14

You'd hate to be surrounded by wonderful wines without a drop to drink, so bring a fat wallet when festival guy Steven Restivo strikes with the San Rafael Food and Wine Festival on Saturday, Aug. 11 at the Falkirk Cultural Center (1408 Mission Ave., San Rafael; 1–5pm; free; 415.485.3328). . . . No wine goes without some good cheese, so plan ahead and make some of your own in under an hour! Stretch those curds during a homemade mozzarella class on Thursday, Aug. 9 at Relish Culinary Center (14 Matheson St., Healdsburg; $69; 707.431.9999). . . . And while you're there, you might as well stay a few days and become an honorary Healdsburger at the hands-on Cook Like a Local class on Saturday, Aug. 11 (14 Matheson St., Healdsburg. $208. 707.431.9999). . . . Not interested in staycations? Then bon voyage á Le Petit Marché and chomp on croissants and crêpes while checking out antiques and collectibles at the French Market on Sunday, Aug. 12, at the Marin Center (10 Avenue of the Flags, San Rafael; 9am–3pm; free; 415.473.6358). . . . Sick of language ministries and ready for a siesta? Then cross a border and grab some chorizos at Pinot and Paella on Sunday, Aug. 12, at Freestone Vineyards (12747 El Camino Bodega, Freestone; noon–2pm and 2pm–4pm; $30; reservations at 707.874.1010). . . . And on the way home, don't trip on a Burbank "pop-up" dinner, a six-course bounty of local fresh goodies at a Chosen Spot Dinner. Aug. 11 is sold-out, but spots are still open for Sept. 8, at Luther Burbank Home and Gardens (204 Santa Rosa Ave., Santa Rosa; $75. 707.524.5445).—Catherine Zaw
