National Pizza with the Works Day (except anchovies) Quote for Today: Neapolitan’s have always had their fast food. It’s called pizza. Luciano De Crescenzo   Today is National Pizza with the Works Day (except anchovies). Americans really love their pizzas. We have a Pizza Festival Month, three Pizza Days and two weeks all dedicated to some form of this late night dorm room favorite.   Hold the Anchovies? One thing that gets me is the exclusion of the anchovy. Anchovies are salty and a little overpowering, but hey, get them on the side, why not? We get everything else on the side.

If the anchovy is just too much for you, try some high-quality fish...

Quote for Today: He who truly knows has no occasion to shout. Leonardo Da Vinci Today in food history (May 22, 1946) the world’s premier culinary school, The Culinary Institute of America was founded in Hyde Park, New York. This milestone brought to mind some reflections from my past. In 1997, I gave up teaching tennis when I was thrust in the role of kitchen manager at a restaurant on the outskirts of Atlanta. Everyone told me I was out of my mind, working twice as hard and making half as much. To this I proclaimed, “Sorry, I’m happy.” Three months into my role of running a kitchen, everyone from family to former tennis students were telling me to go to culinary school. At the time, in my early adulthood, I was happy with what was unfolding, and terrified...

Quote for Today:  “My faith always has been and always will be important to me.”   Aretha Franklin, Singer, Songwriter, and Pianist Today is National Shrimp Scampi Day and although unsure of the origins of this date in history, Shrimp Scampi is a favorite of ours.  Shrimp Scampi is a delicious and easy to prepare dish for large dinner parties, or when you want to enjoy a quiet candlelit dinner. While a chef at Fifth Avenue Grill, we sold a plethora of Shrimp Scampi.  This classic dish has been on many menus across this great land of ours.  Our early bird menu featured this dish daily.   It really is not that difficult to make.  This is my personal recipe for cooking this delicious entrée at home. The first thing you need to do is make a compound butter.  The ingredients for this are as follows: 1...
