I hope you like the walnut raisin bread from Jim Lahey's bakery. For many years I spent Thanksgiving in NYC and would stop by the bakery before heading for the airport to buy that particular bread. It was one of my favorites.
You didn't say all that much about Joe's pizza. Can you critique it for us, and also compare it with your own NY style pizzas?
You grandson is a handsome lad.
I do really like the walnut raisin bread from Jim Lahey’s bakery, but I think the loaf I purchased was baked a little too much. Did your bread you purchased ever look as dark as the picture I posted.? I sliced the walnut raisin bread this morning and had some slices. This is a picture of the slices. Do you have any idea how Jim Lahey’s bakery makes their pan pizzas? They were delicious and so crunchy on the bottom. I never experienced a pizza like that before.
I didn’t post much about Joe’s pizza because it tasted just like any average pizza I can buy around my area. As can be seen on the pictures I posted the crust is more dense and bready. In my opinion the crust had a slightly sweet taste to it. The cheese and mozzarella on the slice I purchased were just average. I like a better mozzarella and sauce. I find with each pizza I taste, they all taste a little different. As far as comparing it to the pizzas I make at market, I like the Preferment Lehmann dough a lot better. There were people inside of Joe’s purchasing pizza. There are so many pizza places in NYC to try.
Thanks for saying my grandson is a handsome lad. He is all boy and wants to keep on the go. I think we would have stood in line at John’s to try their pizza, but I know my grandson wouldn’t have been that patient. It is something about his strawberry blonde hair color. Only my grandfather, then me and now my grandson have that color of hair. No one else in our entire family have that color of hair. My hair now is almost white, but it was his color at one time. My grandson’s parents both have really dark hair.
I didn’t post this other picture before, but we also purchase steak on a stick from street vendors in Astoria, Queens. In my opinion their steak on a stick with lemon is really good. I brought home 5 steak on sticks. There were from outside Greek vendors.
