Guest chef night at Pizzanista!
Saturday night was our guest chef night at Pizzanista! We had a great night, with family, friends both new and old and some really great PIZZA.
Emily will be working on a cookbook while we are on the road (after 8 years of logging her food creations, the time has come to organizzize it), and she put her culinary talents to good use for the evenings affair. She decided on 2 specials to represent the journey: the first, a last of the season fig pizza for our nearest point, home; and our furthest, Argentina inspired a chimmichuri based pie with gaucho grilled skirt steak.
Below, Emily prepares the figs for jam, with helper Colette at her hip, who was so thrilled to help push the buttons on the cuisinart and drop the figs in the top feed.
