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. Give them a quick rinse under cold water if you like then try it on a slice. You might be surprised by a taste of Umami lingering around. If the anchovy is just too much for you, try some high-quality fish...

Thought for Today: “To me, life without veal stock, pork fat, sausage, organ meat, demi-glace, or even stinky cheese is a life not worth living.” Anthony Bourdain Today is National Scrapple Day 2014. Scrapple to me was a regional version of every other “Pâté” in the world. The only thing was I believed it came from the Deep South. I have been wrong before and lo and behold here I am again. Although sold throughout the South in regional areas, Scrapple is best known in Pennsylvania, Maryland, New Jersey and Delaware.  Scrapple is usually comprised of Hog Offal. Most people think of Offal as awful, but when prepared correctly a culinary delight may be found. The trimmings of a hog, which would normally be discarded, including bone, heart and liver are turned into a broth. Once the broth is...

Quote for Today: Age does not diminish the extreme disappointment of having a scoop of ice cream fall from the cone. Jim Fiebig September 6th is National Coffee Ice Cream Day 2013. Long have I loved Starbucks Mocha Frappuccino and Ben & Jerry’s Coffee Heath Bar Crunch. However, today’s artisanal ice cream parlors that serve regional flavors with a high milk fat content and rich and creamy textures, are popping up all over the country. Here is a list of five great places to go for Coffee Ice Cream Day. Wish I could list more. 1) Big Dipper Ice Cream – Missoula, Montana: Big Dipper has been serving ice cream since 1995. Among their many accolades was an appearance on Good Morning America and inclusion in the Food and Wine Magazine – Top 50 Ice Cream Spots. Mocha Chip...
