Upcoming NYC Pizza Classes with Mark Bello

Adam Kuban 1 comment

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.

Adam Kuban 17 comments

The Associazione Pizzaiuoli Napoletani, the Italian "pizza police" (they certify pizzerias as being authentically Neapolitan), is opening a restaurant and pizza school. It will be called Kesté Pizza e Vino and hopes to be open by the end of February, according to the New York Times. And then, according to an email I just got from Roberto Caporusico at the Associazione itself, "Down the road we also expect to have classes for nonprofessional 'pizza lovers.'" That would mean you and me, folks. What up with the name? Caporusico explains: "Kesté (spelled 'cheste é') means 'This is it!' in the Neapolitan... More
