After publishing his first cookbook, Edward Pankonin decided he wanted to take a more hands-on approach to teaching others about food. He wanted to expand on what he'd written about his Italian family, dating back to their American emigration in the late 1800s—and share their beloved recipes with even more people. And so, he and his wife Nora opened a cooking school and named it for his book: Simple & Fresh.
This school doesn't just teach recipes, though. Modeled after the cooking schools of Italy, Simple & Fresh relies on fresh ingredients and sources flavors the Pankonins found throughout their travels, including that one time they raided an olive baron's pantry. During regular and specialty classes, students delve into seasonal dishes, learn Italian bread-baking or stuffed pasta-making, and prepare regional dishes from across Italy. Every session is completely hands-on and allows participants to experiment with the techniques they learn. To help students replicate these recipes at home, the school's grocery offers imported and housemade goods such as rustic pasta sauces, extra-virgin olive oil, balsamic vinegar, and baked desserts.
The bright treatment rooms within Skin Deep Studio & Day Spa evoke sun-drenched meadows of the Italian countryside, tricking clients into believing they've escaped to Tuscany for a European vacation or an anniversary screening of European Vacation. This warm, welcoming environment helps visitors feel at home as they receive skincare, massage, and nail services from a team of talented aestheticians and massage therapists. The staff also performs makeup applications, waxing services, and spa treatments designed specially for men.
Drivetech's pro drivers use unmatchable speed and stock-car authenticity to guarantee a healthy flood of adrenaline in every driver and passenger they take around the track. Once Drivetech's expert instructors fill in latent speed demons on safety procedures, steering techniques, and rubber-burning incantations during a one-hour orientation, drivers are free to suit up, hop into a racecar, and indulge in a 12-lap blast around New Hampshire Motor Speedway's one-mile track. If they'd rather ride shotgun, the four-lap ride-along gives racecar fanatics and thrill-seeking maniacs the chance to feel the g-force of a stock car as it shoots down straightaways and rounds corners at ridiculous speeds. Although the experience is as safe as nose-diving into a ball pit full of Tickle Me Elmos, passengers will feel as though the stakes are high as Drivetech's four-wheeled metal rockets hurtle them around the asphalt.
Omega Ranch, a 450-acre wonderland of wilderness for open-air adventures of all types, is nestled between Orlando and Daytona Beach. On April 15–17, the ranch will host two separate family-friendly events inviting modern-day gladiators to dive into a full weekend of al fresco action. The AirSoft War Games weekend is a three-day skirmish using AirSoft guns, or air-powered projectors that propel small biodegradable plastic pellets. After a check-in on Friday night, the games begin on Saturday morning, with three melees taking place throughout the day. After a final showdown on Sunday, an awards ceremony honors those who’ve fought and fallen in the name of oxygen-based battle with medallions and cash prizes.
Since 1946, Norwood's Restaurant and Wine Shop has complemented fresh-caught seafood and aged Angus beef entrees with a well-stocked cache of fine wines and drinks. While basking in spacious dining environs that feature rustic wood architecture, diners cure deep-sea cravings with fish dishes that permit a choice of seven different preparations: salmon fillets dressed in mango-salsa disguises ($20) can have their cover blown by prying forks, and hog snapper might get infused with the sweet slathering of a pineapple chutney ($25). The staff serves fish entrees alongside yukon-gold mashed potatoes and a vegetable medley. Diners on a strict pasta-only diet, or in need of an object soft enough to preclude serious repercussions after throwing it at a vice principal, can enjoy the supple shrimp-and-scallop alfredo ($18.50).
