August is almost over, which means that we have only two more months of rain to fear. With primary and secondary school back in session last week, and college commencing over the next couple days, we're in the home stretch of South Florida's hellacious summer weather. Luckily, there are plenty of food and drink related options to keep you busy for a while.

Whether you're looking to brave the elements with food trucks, gorge yourself on cheese, or celebrate the end of freedom, there's something fun to do this week in Broward and Palm Beach.

Sauces 101
Most people can throw a piece of meat on the grill and that'll suffice; however, if you really want to prove you know your way around a piece of meat, sauces are a must. On Monday at 7:30 p.m., Chef Jean Pierre's Cooking School is holding a sauces 101 class that will teach participants how to make the basic mother sauces and more complex recipes. The cost to attend is $67.
Chef Jean-Pierre's Cooking School is located at 1436 Federal Highway in Fort Lauderdale. Call 954-563-2700, or visit

Food Trucks in Arts Park
Mondays are probably the worst day of the week, but don;t waste the entire day. Liven it up at the weekly Monday night food truck roundup in Arts Park. Curated by Sef "Burger Beast" Gonzalez, the event features trucks ranging from greasy burgers to healthy options. Bring a blanket, chairs, friends or family, and an empty stomach. It takes place every Monday from 5:30 to 9:30 p.m. The event is free to attend.
Hollywood Art's Park is located at One Young Circle in Hollywood. Call 954-921-3500, or visit
