pizza class

For all of you pizza-hounds out there---last night, we went to a pizza-making class given by Michele and Charles Scicolone. They're out promoting their new book, "Pizza, Any Way You Slice It."

If you ever have a chance to attend one of their classes, do! What fun. They are absolutely charming and relaxed, and incredibly knowledgable. Plus, they made some of the best pizza I've ever had--everything from the simplest Neopolitan pizza to an amazing concoction called sfinciuni--a Sicilian pie with onions, anchovies, tomatoes, bread crumbs and cubes of caciocavallo cheese--to a farinata (a totally surprising and delicious concoction made with chickpea flour). And more!

Even if you never plan to make a pizza yourself, a class like this is wonderful entertainment...and great eating! (And drinking, too--two Italian wines were served as well.)
