We're reluctant to share the bounty of Hatch peppers with our vegetarian and vegan friends, especially with this year's crop delayed by drought. Why should a bunch of hippie weirdos get any when they clearly belong in a pot of meaty chili? But Ann Gentry, author of Vegan Family Meals: Real Food For Everyone, is going to teach a few recipes that even a carnivore could love, including chile cornbread with scallion butter and three different soups. For $55, learn a few recipes and take home a copy of her cookbook at Healthy Hatch from 6:30 to 9 p.m. Monday at Central Market, 5750 E. Lovers Lane. Call 214-361-5754.
