La Scaletta Offers Summer Cooking Classes, Dining Deal

Summer in south Florida means beach days, sunny weather...and rain most every afternoon.  Let's face it, while most of the country takes to the outdoors this time of year, Floridians look for  activities where they can be free of searing heat, lightning, and mosquitoes.

When you've seen every blockbuster hit (and some not-so-great ones) at the local multiplex and you're still looking for something to do indoors-- might we suggest a cooking class?

La Scaletta Ristorante & Pizzeria (1201 U.S. 1) in North Palm Beach is offering up a series of four cooking classes at the restaurant on Saturdays from 1 - 3 p.m. The intimate classes, for up to eight students, will feature hands-on instruction of classic Italian cuisine.

Each class features one dish, including favorites like stuffed zucchini, eggplant gnocci, an entree (TBA) and tortina di ricotta.

Each individual class is $65 per person, and the four-class series is $220. The fee includes class materials and a special take-home gift from chefs Giordy and Raffaele. 


Classes are scheduled for June 16, June 23, June 30, and July 14, 2012.

Advance reservations can be made by calling 561-630-8500.

If

you'd rather leave the cooking to professionals, La Scaletta is offering

15 percent off diners' entire check (including wine, beer, cocktails,

and sodas) from now until October 1, 2012.  Tax and gratuity are not

included in this "summer swell" promotion. La Scaletta features thin-crust pizzas, salads, fresh fish...and singing chefs!
