Free: Cooking demo and pizza

Chef Brett Hulbert took over Portabello's in downtown Kennett Square a few weeks ago, and he will give a taste of his new menu Saturday, Oct. 15, 2011 from 1 to 4 p.m. at the Williams Sonoma store in King of Prussia Mall. Hulbert, last at Seaglass at the Golden Inn in Avalon, N.J., bought Portabello's from Giancarlo Cantalucio, who decided to sell when his wife was offered a business opportunity out of state. 

Villa Fresh Italian Kitchen, found in food courts such as the Gallery, Philadelphia International Airport and the Borgata in Atlantic City, will offer free slices of pizza on Tuesday, Oct. 18. One must "like" Villa’s Facebook page to get a coupon. Handy-dandy location finder is here.
