When you want to fix more than tea for two

Restaurateur Barbara Smith (above) will talk on "Preparing a Valentine's Dinner for Two" at 6 p.m. Feb. 8 at the central branch of the Enoch Pratt Free Library. The event, part of the Pratt's celebration of Black History Month, is free, but reservations are required. Call Averil Kadis at (410) 396-5494 by Tuesday. Bread & Circus, the Boston-area chain of gourmet food shops, is opening a store in Washington today at 2323 Wisconsin Ave. N.W. Among the highlights is a restaurant with wood-burning grill.

Dutch legacy

The influence of early Dutch settlers on American cuisine, or "The Dutch Touch," will be the topic of a slide show/lecture and cooking demonstration from noon to 2 p.m. Feb. 7 at the Baltimore International Culinary College, 206 Water St. New York culinary historian Peter G. Rose will prepare Dutch doughnuts. Tickets are $10. Call (410) 752-4983.

Cooking in the saddle

Imagine riding a bike along a country road in France stopping for baked oysters with Chablis cream, seared scallops with candied tomatoes and basil or lemon tart. Or buy Sarah Leah Chase's new books, "Pedaling through Provence Cookbook" and "Pedaling through Burgundy Cookbook" (Workman, $14.95 each).
