Do chickens really plot elaborate escapes from chicken farms, a la Chicken Run? What was on the other side of that road that inspired a clucker to risk death in a cloud of feathers? Why do so many things "taste just like chicken?" Sadly, answers to these questions won't be forthcoming at Central Market Cooking School's "All About Chicken" class 6:30 to 9 p.m. Monday at 5750 E. Lovers Lane. Instead, the class will teach you how to cut up a whole chicken and prepare a handful of dishes, including chicken in sun-dried tomato cream sauce and chicken picatta. Useful, sure, but not nearly as interesting. Admission is $55, and there's a waiting list to get in. Call 214-361-5754 or visit centralmarket.com.
