I received this email from Rosario & thought that I would share it.
Happy New Year !!!
I wanted to write you to let you know of a unique event for all pizza lovers that will take place at Keste next week.
Once agin Maestro Pizzaiolo Antonio Starita, fourth generation Pizzaiolo and owner of "Pizzeria Starita a Materdei" in Napoli will be in NY for a short period of time and will find the time to visit us at Keste.
"Don Antonio" will stop by at Keste and work side by side with our pizzaioli on Thursday January 13th starting at 5PM.
His presence is guaranteed at least until 7PM.
It will be a unique opportunity to see 2 Maestri Pizzaioli, Antonio Starita and our own Roberto Caporuscio, working Side by Side and to taste their delicious creations.
We all remember last year visit from Don Antonio and the wonderful creation he introduced, the Pizza Sorrentina.
A white Pizza topped with Smoked mozzarella, Lemon and Basil which became a signature pizza last summer at Keste.
