Historical Society of Scotch Plains and Fanwood Present Florence Ravioli

SCOTCH PLAINS FANWOOD – Florence’s Famous Rectangular Ravioli - They melt in your mouth they are so fresh.  They have an unusual rectangular shape so everyone knows they come from Florence Ravioli Company located in downtown Scotch Plains at 391 Park Avenue. 

Third generation owners Ralph and Cyndy Losanno will tell the history of this local store at theFebruary 26th meeting of the Historical Society of Scotch Plains and Fanwood.  Ralph's grandmother Florence and her husband Raphael started the store in Newark in 1943.  Their son Anthony and his wife Maryann moved and expanded the business to Scotch Plains in 1968.  Their son Ralph and his wife Cyndy have continued expanding the business, just moving it to a more central location on Park Avenue a year ago.  Their son has joined the business so a fourth generation will ensure delicious Florence Ravioli, heat-and-serve dinners, fresh pastas and fresh mozzarella and ricotta cheeses for many more years. 

This yummy meeting with samples takes place on Tuesday evening February 26th, starting at 8:00PM. The meeting takes place at Scotch Hills Country Club on Plainfield Ave. and Jerusalem Rd. in Scotch Plains. It is free and open to everyone. (Florence Ravioli website:  www.florenceravioli.com)
