OLD PORTRob Evans and Sam Hayward flipping pizzas? Yup, Portland's two big-name chefs, plus Chad Conley (also heading for stardom as the chef at Gather in Yarmouth) will show off their pizza chops at a No Kid Hungry Dinner at Flatbread Company to benefit Share Our Strength Maine. Unlike previous NKH dinners, which have been swanky, big-ticket evenings, this one is aimed at families: tickets are $30 per person ($35 at the door) and kids eat free with a paying adult. That price gets you all-you-can eat pizza, salads from Rosemont Market and cupcakes from East End. Live music and a silent auction are on deck, too. Advance tickets are available on Eventbrite.

WEST END — For those who disdain the trumped up romantic pressure of Valentine's Day, here's how to avoid that table for two. Chef Steve Corry of Five Fifty-Five and Petite Jacqueline provides a stay-at-home, Saint Valentine's dinner-with-friends menu (and recipes) for novelist (and Portland resident) Kate Christensen's story in the February issue of O Magazine.
