ITS A GIRL!!  :-* At least I think so? sleek and sexy, shiny an new! Very exciting too!
Yes I am speaking of my new Mecnosud Fork Mixer She has arrived home after some wheeling and dealing and teaming up with the zaman larry (who also took ownership of one of these beauties) I picked her up at the warehouse and gently lifter her from the truck bed with my friends fork lift ( flashbacks Craig?) It weighed in at 375 pounds including the custom metal pallet. Its an FC35M model and perfect for what I need. Not as pricey and easier to get than the Pietro Berto but a well built machine for sure! I just need an Stephano  in the Garage but who would be crazy enough to do that right?. As mentioned many times, Frank at Vesta was more than gracious allowing me to mix all my dough last year with his diving arm mixer. Going to be very hard to beat that Machine and dough quality. However- time is money and schlepping 30 min each way sometimes waiting for the mixer to become available.... 2-3 hours total to make at times only 60 dough balls was eating me up. So after months of research I ended up with what I think is a BEAUTIFUL Machine. Its single phase electric for USA . Aside from a different plug, all I needed was a standard 220V outlet with 20 amp breaker which I had in place already. I Must admit, I was a bit nervous "cutting the cord" to replace the European plug, but was simple, and I am up and running!  ;D The forecast is for good weather and Fire  >:D so I Immediately made a batch of dough today. I was so worried about how it would work with smaller batches. Did 8500 G flour and 5275 G water for my test run. Mixer performed  Beautiful!! Max is said to be 23kg dry flour which I think would be pushing it? Jay J, at IL Cane Rosso also runs this identical mixer stated it was abit small for him now, He was very helpful in my decision Thanks Jay! I will post a few videos and pics later on. for now welcome Jessabell (sounds Italian right?)

John,  I am in search for the same capacity model, 35kg...fork mixer.  Know how much they run and where I can snag one?

I don't really like the Chef coat on folks in a pizza joint but think it works really well on these outdoor events for some reason. Sorta like maybe reminds people that "hey, this ain't just some back yard fool'in around here." Dunno...
But it looks good on ya John!  :chef:

Peppadew's are amazing with turkey or roast beef sandwiches. I chop them up and mix them with my honey dijon mayo.

pepadews and spicy sausage is a long time favorite here.  our WF sells good ones on the olive bar.  i like them better than the jarred ones.

The pies look great .how big is that tent and do you have the opening of your oven under it?? if you decide to upgrade your oven i may want your chuck wagon if you give me a players price.
