NEW YORK CITY— As per annual tradition, Mario Batali's Italian megastore Eataly will host the international chef's forum Identità Golose from October 4-6. Chefs like Batali, Daniel Boulud, Sara Jenkins, and Matt Lightner will offer "intimate" cooking seminars focusing on basic ingredients like pasta, rice, fish, cheese, eggs, and tomatoes. For Identità's two main events, Batali and Lidia Bastianich will each host an "all-star chef dinner" on Eataly's rooftop Birreria. Tickets are now available; more information here. [EaterWire]

CHARLESTON— Southern cookbook authors Matt and Ted Lee — better known, collectively, as the Lee Brothers — will share their writing/branding wisdom during a two-day "Cookbook Boot Camp" in January 2014. The two separate "retreats," geared toward professional chefs looking to make a cookbook proposal, are scheduled for January 12-14 and January 19-21 in Charleston. Registration is open now.
