Introduction...hey kids! =)
« on: February 21, 2014, 09:02:30 PM »
Ciao! =)

Hi Everyone, I'm Ellie. My username is (ibleedpizzasauce)...I think it basically explains lots of fun facts about myself. The simplest fact is, "I Am A Pizza Geek-A Bread Baker and Lover Of Anything Crafty and Artisan! My favorite toy as a kid was my grandfather’s prosciutto flywheel slicer who was a butcher and my grandma’s baking tools. Who would have known? I will nerd out with the best of you about crust, crumb, cake yeast "My Mother"...don't talk about my mother unless you want me talk about yours...ha-ha...OK, back to the biz...let's see, San Marzano, Fior di Latte, Buffalo Mozzarella and all the delicate and delicious finishes a girl could ever want to be dressed in...Sea salt, basil and a drizzle of "virgin" olive oil.

I’m such a dork about this world and love of pizza I have visited and immersed myself in tomato fields outside Vesuvius, water buffalo farms in Caserta, the flour lab at the Caputo facility with Antimo and his father Carmine and roaming endlessly in the back kitchens of Gino Sorbillo, Da Michele, Starita, Da Matteo and dozens and dozens more throughout the streets of Naples and Italy as a whole. blah…blah…blah…right, this girls nuts! I’m just warming up and the goods are coming…its all pizza porn to me! If you can make a pizza pie in the sky, life is wonderful!

All righty then.... OK, seriously. "I love Pizza" so much I immersed my entire life around it! There was no other choice really. None! I had to do it…it meaning become a pizza geek and I own that. Maybe if your super nice and you bring me a bouquet of basil one of these days I will let you come over and play in my fork or spiral mixer, pull a shot of espresso from the La Marzocco and slap out a few pies to dance under the dome and on the deck of not one but (4) of my favorite forni's. Actually (5) and growing but I'm not going to include all of them because one is in my yard. The little cute thing that she is needs to stay there. Seriously, maybe I'm perhaps the only sicko here on this blog who owns like a bad habit or hoarder (4) Italian ovens an Acunto Mario Classico Vulcano Extra, Acunto Gianni, Stefano Ferrara and an ‘OT’ Valoriani model from Tuscany. "The Mug" is what I call her and that last one is loaded on board my favorite ride named “arugula”. Yes my ride has a pizza oven on it of course…why wouldn’t she right? Silly’s…everyone should have a ride with a pizza oven.

Say hi, share, I’ll share and lets talk… lets “make some of those gorgeous pies”!
Ciao Ellie =)

Yes...but not in my home. In a "fantastico" test kitchen just outside Denver where kids like me can play per say! I'm just finishing her up. At home it's my 1st little cute wood fired forni. At the kitchen its an M120, Classico 7 Vulcano Extra, GA130 and an OT-120.

Oh, okay, so you're an oven importer with a test kitchen/showroom.

Your post reads a little differently, but, hey, it's still great to have you here. Any friend of John Conklin's is a friend of ours  :)

I had to put all those ovens somewhere...they wouldn't fit in my home. So yes, in my business life I'm a pizza geek and in my personal life I'm a pizza geek. I just mix business with pleasure and pleasure with business. Sounds fare and fun to me! =)

I trust you too.

John is a cool cat so yes business aside, I'd love to participate how, when and where I can.

Kindness,

Ellie

Ellie, electronically speaking, there's no better place for pizza geeks than within these walls  ;D

Then I see I have wandered into the right side of town. Pleasure to be here.  :-* I have literally haunted this sight for years wandering and reading, listening and learning...I have been fascinated by these electronic walls.

Happy Friday! It's almost 8pm here and I have to run out for dinner with friends.  :drool:

Ciao Mr. Scott
