Piatti Pronti’s professionally equipped kitchen can barely contain Chef Lucia Biscaglio’s enthusiasm for teaching the fine art of classic Italian cooking. To begin, up to 20 students craft fine, fluffy dough, learning the raw ingredients and secret incantations necessary to summon noodles from scratch. After finishing off self-toted bottles of wine or beer, fledgling chefs can play spin-the-bottle to determine which cheeses, meats, and veggies will enter the closet of each handcrafted ravioli. Boiling pots burble delightedly as delicious ravioli cook to perfection, then hiss in disappointment as pasta pieces are retrieved and parceled out to their creators. Dessert signals a sugary finale to the 1.5-hour course, though Chef Biscaglio sends students home with a sack full of carefully preserved and easily transportable leftovers. Additional class times may be added as interest and lunar phase dictate, and Piatti Pronti invites customers to express their desires and availability on their Groupon-specific class-registration page.
40 years ago, the initials heading C&D Towing stood for the Cicero & Devon Texaco gas and service station, founded by brothers Val and Joe Strumberger. Today they've come to stand for "Capable and Dependable," the values carried by the tow truck drivers who rescue cars and trucks of all sizes from a future spent trying fruitlessly to hitch a ride from passing semis. Along with gently rolling vehicles onto a fleet of handsome red trucks, C&D's technicians can protect and resuscitate them with services including jumpstarts, tire changes, seasonal safety checks, and electrical work.
