Jillyanna’s Woodfired Cooking School in Cape Porpoise will celebrate the life of renowned Italian cooking teacher and cookbook author Marcella Hazan, who died last month, with a special non-pizza class and menu from 4:30 to 8 p.m. Saturday.

Some of the class will be demonstration and some will be hands-on. The cost is $155 and participants are invited to BYOB. The menu includes: Grilled Littleneck Clams on the Half Shell; Homemade Fettuccine with Alfredo Sauce; Veal Scaloppine with Lemon; Mushroom Salad with Parmesan Cheese, Crispy Pancetta and White Truffle Vinaigrette; and Braised Pears with Bay Leaves and Amarone Wine.
The school is at 141 Wildes District Road. Visit jillyannnas .com or call 967-4960.

The workshop, scheduled for Oct. 28 and 29, will culminate with baking proof tests under controlled conditions in the Maine Grain & Bread Lab at the Somerset Grist Mill kitchen, 42 Court St.
