Morrill Executive Chef Paul Wahlberg, owner of Alma Nove Restaurant in Hingham, presents a cooking class, "Winter Soups with Chef Paul Wahlberg," on Tuesday, January 18, from 6-9 p.m. at The Boston Center for Adult Education. (Photo by Michael Schley) Paul Wahlberg, the Execu- tive Chef and owner of Alma Nove Restaurant in Hingham, will join the Boston Center for Adult Edu- cation in offering students a lesson in "crafting winter soups."

Chef Wahlberg was born in Dorchester, one of nine sib- lings, which include his fa- mous younger brothers, ac- tor Mark Wahlberg and mu- sician/actor Donnie Wahl- berg. While Mark and Donnie spent childhood day-dreaming of their inevi- table rise to fame as per- formers, Paul spent his time in the family kitchen with his mother Alma, also his restaurant's namesake. We are told that at the age of 11 or 12, Paul fell in love with food over a simple Egg- plant Parmesan sandwich at a friend's house. According to Paul, his cooking was in- fluenced by the Sunday sup- pers he shared at home with family and friends. Founded by Chef Paul Wahlberg, along with co- owners, brothers Mark and Donnie Wahlberg, and fam- ily friend Ed St. Croix. Alma Nove is Hingham's popular new waterfront restaurant "inspired by a blend of flavors from Italy and the surround- ing Mediterranean.- Named after the Wahlberg family matriarch, Alma. and her nine (nove in Italian) children, the restaurant fea- tures an eclectic menu of antipa~ti, ~pecialty pastas, seafood, and chops prepared on a wood burning grill. Alma Nove exudes a warm and welcoming ambiance highlighting an outdoor wrap-around patio with ro- mantically lit fire pits at night, easily enjoyed from the comfort of indoors during the cold winter months.
