We catch up with Jay Jerrier of Cane Rosso on the state of pizza in Dallas and the shape of the pizza landscape there.
'Q and A's' on Serious Eats
If you've spent any time here at Slice, you've probably read some of this guy's work and seen his comments. Some of them might have even caused you to pause, raise an eyebrow, or maybe shake your head in disbelief. So who is the guy who writes this stuff??? It's high time we find out; Pizzablogger has resisted his turn in the hot seat for far too long.
If you've been peeking at My Pie Monday, then you've most likely noticed the nicely rounded beauts produced by Slice'r Atmast. Her pies have a signature look and she's got some tricks up her baking sleeves that you can learn a little bit more about during this week's Pizza Obsessives Q&A.
Get to know what makes pizza fanatics tick as they take a turn in the hot seat. This week's Pizza Obsessive is Slice intern, Paige Brocious.
It's time to get to know our Los Angeles Slice correspondent, Miss Kelly Bone! Whether snapping gorgeous pizza shots for Top This or making her reviewing rounds, Kelly has got all the Slice bases covered in L.A. Let's find out what makes this pizza-loving California girl tick with the hard hitting Pizza Obsessives Q&A treatment.
This week we're getting Kenny Dunn from Rome into the Slice hot seat. Let's get to know this Philly native turned Rome tour guide a little better with the hard hitting questions.
A core member of the pizzamaking.com forums, Craig has been tirelessly pushing the limits of his pizza making since modifying his BBQ grill a couple of years ago and making pizzas on that which were already beyond what many are doing. Then came the Acunto.
This week we're getting David Kover from the San Francisco beat into the Slice hot seat. Let's get to know this Brooklyn native turned Bay area pizza investigator a little better with the hard hitting questions. —MS
If you've checked out My Pie Monday, then you know Norma427 by her experimental pies. Let's get to know one of Slice's most imaginative pie makers a little better by getting her in the hot seat.—MS
You've probably seen Meredith Smith's Massachusetts pizza explorations on Slice, from eggroll-wrapper thin pies at The Corner Grille in Worcester to crazy-sweet-sauce pizza in Beverly. Starting next week, she'll be at the helm here, so today we put her in the hot seat. Let's get to know our new Slice Queen!
Some of you have asked for this Q&A in the comments of older Pizza Obsessives interviews. I've always begged off in the past with some excuse or other. But, guess what? One of my other interviews fell through for this week, and I needed someone quick to fill the slot, so here you go! Is it weird to sit yourself in the hot seat? I guess we're going to find out. —AK
So here's something crazy I have never mentioned on Slice and maybe this counts .... On that Rachael Ray trip, the magazine paid for a crazy-ass plane trip from NYC to PDX to SEA to SFO to LAX to PHX to MCI (that's Kansas City). Instead of going straight home to NYC, though, I decided to have my "return" flight drop me in KC so I could visit my family. The magazine's travel agent was amenable to this. What did she care if my last leg stopped in NYC or KC? As long as I paid my own way back from KC to NYC, that was cool with her. Anyway, here's the deal, though: I didn't go home to NYC.
Ladies and gents, if you've been enjoying the coverage from New Jersey lately as much as I have, you probably want to get to know Tim "Pizzasnob" Kang a little better. Let's get his dude in the hot seat, shall we?
It's been a while since we've had a My Pizza Oven, so I'm happy to welcome Neil Gunning, a chef from Bellingen, New South Wales, Australia, who has built a wood-fired earth oven in his back yard.
You may know Kevin Hayes as the guy holdin' it down just north of New York City in Westchester County. He's turned in some mouthwatering reviews (like this one on the Lincoln Lounge, which looks downright inhalable) and, we hope, has more to come. Let's get him in the hot seat.
I have always wanted to do a subsection of Slice that just documented pizza boxes. But I mostly eat in the pizzerias I visit and rarely take pizza to go (I eat it all). There's this obsessive gal, though, Shirley Chow, who documents every pizza box from every pizzeria she visits and posts them on her site, photosofpizzaboxes.com. Surely we had to get her in the hot seat!
