A bigger burger
In this super-sized world, a burger -- even one called a Whopper -- just isn't big enough.
For that real tummy-bustin' sensation, you need to double up, or so goes the logic at Burger King, which introduces the Texas Double Whopper this week. The sandwich boasts two meat patties, bacon, Amercan cheese and jalapeño peppers.
Free lunchtime samples will be offered at Burger King outlets in Waianae tomorrow, Ewa Beach Friday, Mililani Saturday and Pearl City Sunday.
Kapiolani Community College offers these classes in May. Both include instruction and hands-on cooking. Call 734-9211.
Basic Knife Skills: Chef Grant Sato teaches how to choose, maintain, sharpen and use a knife like a professional. Class covers basic cutting techniques. 6 to 9 p.m. May 22. Cost is $45.
Flavors of the Middle East Cuisine: Magdy Elzoheiry teaches how to make a complete meal of Egyptian gambari (a shrimp and mint dish), Tunisian potato salad and Moroccon grilled fish brochettes. 8 a.m. to noon May 27. Cost is $50.
