NYC Wine & Food Fest Planning a Blow-Out Pizza Party Event for 2010?

An interesting tweet from Lee Schrager, the man behind the NYC Wine & Food Festival: @Lee_Schrager: "what are your fav pizza places in NY? we are lining them up now for Pizza Party at #NYCWFF this October..wouldnt Rocco be a great host?" Very intriguing. If you're familiar with the Wine & Food Festival (sort of a South by Southwest of food), this should bring to mind such hot-ticket NYCWFF events as the annual Rachael Ray Burger Bash (which also takes place at the South Beach Wine & Food Festival) and last year's Meatball Madness party. While there are hundreds of... More

Pizza Bike Ride This Sunday to Di Fara, L&B Spumoni Gardens

[Photograph: Adam Kuban] Making its way around Twitter today attached to the hashtag #bikenyc is word that there's going to be a pizza bike ride in Brooklyn this Sunday, November 22, weather permitting. Meet at Brooklyn's Grand Army Plaza at 11 a.m. From there, the ride will hit Di Fara and then L&B Spumoni Garden. I'm thinking of joining this ride, but if a lot of people join in (and, hey, the more, the merrier), I'm just wondering how things will work at Di Fara. A large group of cyclists descending on Di Fara would be a recipe for... More

Una Pizzarino: Anthony Mangieri and Motorino's Mathieu Palombino to Form Pizza Supergroup for Pieman's Craft Events

Kuban)" alt="The UPN Process: Bringing the Pie Out (by Adam "Slice"<br />Kuban)" width="500" height="335"> The Pieman's Craft event is almost surely your last chance to get an Anthony Mangieri–produced pie from this oven. When I talked to Anthony Mangieri a few months ago about once again hosting the Serious Eats–Slice Pieman's Craft events during the New York City Wine & Food Festival on October 10 and 11, his only hesitation was that he might be selling Una Pizza Napoletana to Motorino's Mathieu Palombino and his partners. He swore me to secrecy, and I honored his request. Well, as we... More

Naples Comes to Seattle

The inaugural Neapolitan Pizza Forum will be held in Seattle June 24–29. Why Seattle, you ask? Well, there are several similarities between Naples and Seattle that make this city an ideal choice for VPN Americas' initial pizza convention. First of all, the skylines of both cities include a magnificent yet ominous volcano looming in the distance (Mount Vesuvius and Mount Rainier, respectively). Another shared geographical feature is that both of these busy ports are anchored in a magnificent bay. But from a culinary perspective, both Naples and Seattle are world-renowned for their inspired coffee and seafood, and most important,... More

Upcoming NYC Pizza Classes with Mark Bello

Pizza a Casa's Mark Bello leads the ingredient-procurement expedition during one of his pizza workshops. Mark Bello of Pizza a Casa has just announced two late-June pizza workshops. The classes comprise a walking tour of Manhattan's Chinatown and Little Italy, where students shop for ingredients at places like Alleva Dairy, and a hands-on workshop in Bello's kitchen. Ingredients are determined by what the class buys on the shopping portion of the workshop, but from a past Pizza a Casa event I attended, I can tell you that Bello's topping choices are thoughtful and delicious.

Cheryl, the Pizza Dance Party

Thursday night I had the pleasure of attending the pizza-themed Cheryl dance party mentioned early last week on Slice. The Royale in Park Slope was decked out in pizza-parlor regalia with red-and-white checked tablecloths, construction-paper pizza slices, and paper plates on the wall. There was no shortage of fantastic homemade pizza-themed costumes. Attendees came dressed as various toppings: pepperoni, olives, peppers, tomatoes, broccoli. There was even someone dressed as salmon. And one guest came dressed as Kristy Lynn Hammonds, one of the recently fired Domino's miscreants of YouTube fame. The evening's most popular snack accessories were edible pizza necklaces, thoughtfully... More

What You're Doing Next Tuesday: Adult Education at Union Hall

I'll be speaking as part of a fun year-end wrap-up at Union Hall in Park Slope. My topic? Pizza, what else? Also speaking will be Patrick Di Justo with "Things We Lost" (the bygones of 2008) Joe Garden with "Welcome to the Night" (the year in vampires), and Marian Salzman with "The Year of Payback" (why the buzzword for 2009 will be "reboot"). The retrospective will be 2009's first installment of Adult Education, self-described as "a useless lecture series" and also as "a monthly event series where various speakers present brief, multimedia lectures on a shared theme." Attendees are advised... More

If you fold a slice in... More
