Team Vetri just released their schedule of September cooking classes at Osteria and in the new upstairs room at Vetri. So if you’ve ever wanted to have Marc Vetri show you how to make pasta (or have him and his dad Sal teach you the secrets of a proper Sunday supper), you should probably get over to the ticketing site and make your reservations now.
And hey, Vetri isn’t the only one playing teacher in September. Jeff Michaud is doing classes on Pizza and Italian bar snacks. Brad Daniels is hand-rolling pasta. Adam Leonti is making risotto. Ian Brendle is coming in to do an end-of-summer dinner. Brad Spence is doing a class on “cucina casalinga” (housewife cuisine and Italian soul food, more or less). And on Tuesday, September 16, 10 lucky folks will get to be among the first to try the food from Lo Spiedo when chef Scott Calhoun crops by to do some menu testing. That one should be awesome.

It’s another Culinary Culture Swap dinner at Osteria, and this time around, the crew is hosting Mark Ladner of the Batali/Bastianich super-restaurant, Del Posto.
Together, Ladner, chef Jeff Michaud and the whole Osteria team will be putting out a 4-course tour of northern and southern Italy. The dinner starts at 6:30 on May 13. Reservations are $85 and can be secured by calling Osteria Philly at 215-763-0920.
Oh, and we just happen to have the menu, too...

We’ve heard the complaints, “Zeppoli is too far.” “It’s in Jersey.” “You can’t get there without a car.” Of course these complaints ignore that Zeppoli is just a 16 minute drive from City Hall or a quick cab ride/pleasant walk from the Collingswood PATCO station. But this week it is even easier to get to and from Zeppoli, as UberX has rolled out in South Jersey. The ride-sharing alternative to cabs is also free this week.
No promo code is necessary and you can get up to five free rides worth up to $25 starting in Camden, Burlington, or Gloucester counties. And legally, the UberX ride could deliver you to Philadelphia from New Jersey.
So if you've been meaning to get to Zeppoli, you've got through May 7th to do it with a free UberX. And then once you do that, maybe dinner and a movie at Osteria in the Moorestown Mall?
