I am not sure what thread to put this post on, so if it is in the wrong place, would one of the moderators please put it in the right place.
Bob1 came to market Tuesday and brought Steve and me so many goodies to try.
It was a pleasure to see Bob again. The first time, and actually the last time, I got to meet Bob was at Fredís event with Warren at http://www.pizzamaking.com/forum/index.php/topic,10020.0.html
Bob brought us each a whole tomato pie from Joseph Corrorpolese Bakery and Deli. We tasted slices from the one box. I never tasted a real ďtomato pieĒ before. The taste of the ďtomato pieĒ was a lot different than I thought a ďtomato pieĒ would taste like. I was surprised that the bottom crust wasnít brown. It looked like it might have been docked, but I am not sure. The tomato sauce on that pie was very sweet. The crumb is very soft too. I really enjoyed being able to taste a real ďtomato pieĒ. Tomato Pies are eaten cold. It was very good. Bob even brought me some Joseph Corropolese Famous Tomato Pie Sauce to try. In addition, Bob brought a bag of Grande Italian Blend of Cheddar Blend for me to try.
Bob also brought us slices of pizza from 3 different other pizzerias, other than the ďtomato pie. For the life of me, I canít remember the names of the pizzerias. In some of the pictures are the slices. The one kind of pizza the bottom crust is very crispy. Those slices were good. Maybe if Bob sees this thread, he can fill in the information I canít recall.
Bob also brought different oreganos, one being the Dante Sicilian stick oregano that is close to Krinos with a little more Marjoram oil.
Bob also brought me a herb for me to grow in my garden that is a sterile hybrid between oregano and marjoram.
I would have reheated some of the other slices Bob brought us yesterday, but Steve and I were invited out to dinner from doing the rehearsal dinner pizzas at http://www.pizzamaking.com/forum/index.php/topic,18444.0.html
and I wanted to save room for dinner. I will reheat some of the slices today and report back on them. They sure are interesting and different looking pizzas.
Thanks so much Bob!
It sure was a pleasure talking to you about pizzas on Tuesday and also you being so generous in bringing us all the goodies!
It is so nice to be able to talk to other members that are so passionate about pizzas. That is one great thing about this forum in that it does bring members together sometimes to talk to them in person.
I will post more pictures after the reheat of the slices Bob brought me. I think Steve already reheated some of his slices.
