Ring the dinner bell, and the school bell while you're at it. The Boston Center for Adult Education (BCAE) just announced its fall lineup of popular chef-led cooking classes, and it's an A+ affair. The weekly classes kick off on Friday, September 20 with Karen Akunowicz of Myers + Chang; she'll lead "Behind the Line," a concept that transforms the BCAE into a full-service dining room, with students replicate the roles found in a working restaurant kitchen. (It sounds like a challenge straight out of a Food Network reality show.) After that, there's something for every taste: on Monday, September 23, chef Chris Frothingham of Vine Brook Tavern will lead "A Taste of the Tavern"; T.W. Food toque Tim Weichmann (pictured) will instruct "Bavarian Bites," inspired by the Central European fare of his new Somerville spot Bronwyn; Gabe Cheung of The Paramount spices things up on "Havana Night"; and Greg Jordan of Mare Oyster Bar teams up Notch Brewing for "Brew & Chew," a session spent making perfect pairings. (There's also a pie-making class with the folks of Centerville Pie Co.)
