Lamb Supper Club: Flock-upy Wool-street

The nice folks on the Tri-Lamb Council recently sent us our next shipment of lamb. The seasonal recipe this time around was a lamb flatbread with arugula and goat cheese. It is ground lamb, which is a fun switch from the large roast we had last time. They sent the lamb, along with everything needed [...]

New Haven Style Pizza Rules!

Considering I went to college in Hartford, CT it is crazy that it took 10 years and a wedding on the CT coast to get me to try some real New Haven pizza. I wish I had tried to sooner, when it would have been a short road trip away. New Haven style pizza, refereed [...]

Adams Morgan Jumbo Slice

We live in Adams Morgan in Washington, DC. It is a neighborhood better known for its bars than its restaurants. It does have one culinary distinction, the jumbo slice; which is a really large slice of pizza. Right now you are probably saying, “Hah, I have had a large slice of pizza”. Truth is though, [...]

Pizza Stones – What You Need to Know

We lost a good friend a couple days ago… our pizza stone. It had survived 2 moves and plenty of good bread baking and pizza making. I think what may have finally done it in was a leaking calzone. I tried making calzone and I made the second one up too soon so the dough [...]

Cast Iron Pizza

People go to great lengths to try and replicate authentic pizza at home. One of the main things separating the pizza you make from the pizzerias is heat. I read about one guy who used the cleaning cycle of his oven to get it really hot and then jerry rigged the latch so he could [...]

Last Friday I made two really good pizzas. The first was a Fig, Caramelized Onion and Goat Cheese pizza and this is the second pizza we [...]

Fig, Caramelized Onion And Goat Cheese Pizza

We haven’t had as much time to cook recently… but the one thing we have been doing consistently is making and eating pizza. I have been making a bunch of pizzas and wanted to try to something a little different. This past Friday I tried making two different “innovative” pizzas. I will post the second [...]

Pizza Bianca

So we don’t have cable. We have a nice, big HD tv, but no cable… and no Food Network. Luckily the PBS station near us has a great channel Create, filled with lots of good cooking shows. Even better, they have Made in Spain re-runs every night at 6:30! While Create may not have any [...]

Okonomiyaki – Japanese Pizzas

Last week I volunteered as an assistant at CulinAerie, a cooking school across the street from my office. CulinAeire has a great space with lots of professional equipment. Their convection oven makes me a little jealous. The class I helped out with was “Japanese Bistro” and it taught us all how to make some of [...]

Neapolitan Pepperoni Pizza

I am going to go out a limb and say that there is no such thing as a bad pizza…hmm, well actually I have had plenty of bad pizza. Ok, so it might be more accurate to say that most pizza is pretty good. The pizza we made last weekend was a lot better than [...]
