CUT RATE: Think you need to plunk down crazy cash for some pricey Institute of Culinary Ed class to master knife skills that’d make Julia Child weep? Feh.

They’re known for great live shows, too – this should be good summery fun. (And check the rest of the fest lineup for shows by singer-songwriter Diane Birch, Roy Hargrove and more.) 7PM.
