Another great video. It seems that they only have 2 locations and are keeping it in the family???
That NYC vs. NJ thing is just silly bravado crapola that has been around forever. Like a crosstown rivalry. Anyone who can't see that NJ has its serious food scene is just nuts. You proved it alone just by mentioning Taylor Ham and Jimmy Buffs.
What's involved in making that pizza bread for the Jimmy Buff Hot Dog?
I haven't had a Taylor Ham in about forever. I don't think there is anyplace around here that has even heard of such a thing. I remember my Dad taking me to the Boardwalk in NJ and geting one for he and I. He put ketchup on it. Heaven.
Barry: The pizza bread is easy. I make a fairly wet dough, high yeast dough, let it cold ferment for overnight, take it out, place on parchment lined sheet pans, let it rise quite a bit About doubled, brush it with oil, bake it till done.
Our local grocery store in our little village of 3,000 people carries taylor ham. I was shocked and buy a few a month just so they keep carrying it. I have put it on pizza as a topping and people love it. A teacher down the hall from me whose wife was the personal chef for Gov. Taft for the 8 years he was in as governer, calls it spam on steroids. When I built tennis courts out of Carlstadt NJ we would get our daily breakfast sandwich off a truck- roll with taylor ham, cheese, eggs, with ketchup and wrapped in paper- $1.00. I spent every summer at Ortley beach- next to seaside heights. My grandfather lived in a small 2bdrm bungaloo year round and we spent our summers there. In exchange my mother cooked, cleaned, and we pulled weeds, painted, picked dandelions for his dandelion wine. I love the Jersey shore. Walter
