Nearly 10 years ago, Signal Mountain native and Baylor School graduate Sarah Cate Patten met a charming Sicilian, Benedetto Scaduto, while studying abroad in Italy during her junior year of high school. Benny and Sarah Cate now reside on Signal Mountain and are ready to officially launch The Saucy Sicilian - Authentic Italian Cooking Classes.
Born out of a deep passion for the cultural identity and flavors of Italian food, the couple wants to teach not only all the Italian favorites, but also the art of ‘dining Italian’ - the luxury of an unrushed, beautiful meal made with love, and shared with friends new and old.
Classes will be taught in four different learning tracks. Some classes will be 100% hands-on, others will be focused more on demonstration, with the rest falling somewhere in between.
Students are welcome to bring their own adult beverage and classes will range from $35 - $65 per person.
Jan. 10, 2015, marks the official Grand Opening celebration with an open house, complete with food, drink and demonstrations. The Saucy Sicilian’s ‘home’ will be Bachman Community Center at 2815 Anderson Pike, Signal Mountain (bachmancc.org). The Community Center houses a host of other activities including fitness and kids’ classes and a resale shop.
Mr. and Ms. Scaduto will also offer for sale the same products used during class, provided by local retailer Restaurant and Kitchen Supply (http://www.restaurantandkitchensupply.com). The couple has nearly four years’ experience in teaching Italian cooking skills all over the Chattanooga area and is excited to continue developing The Saucy Sicilian brand and business.
Classes officially start Jan. 23. Visit eatsaucy.com for a complete list of classes offered in January and February.
