The Beat Divas—the celebrated Austin female vocal trio that warbles while it works—has filmed its first video. To celebrate the occasion, they’re having another of their hallmark cooking-singing classes (they sing, not the students), on Saturday, June 18, from 6:30 to 9 p.m. at Central Market Austin, north location. It’s $50 and includes not just dinner, wine, and the cooking demo but also entertainment courtesy of the Divas (Mady Kaye, Dianne Donovan, and Beth Ullman). The culinary theme is Tomato Envy, with recipes for fried green tomatoes (with crème fraiche and basil), BLT salad, roasted-tomato tart, grilled-lemon-and-herb salmon with mango-tomato salsa, and white-chocolate–“strawberried” semifreddo. Watch for their CD release party on Sunday, June 26, on the upper deck of the north Austin Central Market, from 3 to 5:30. It's entitled "Dishing with the Divas--Songs of Food, Love & Mayhem."
