Special thanks to Rick Poon for the pizza-staring portrait.
In just three weeks, I will be co-hosting a pizza and beer event with Gabriele Bonci, Rome’s renowned baker and pizzaiolo, at Paulie Gee’s in Brooklyn. Bonci will bake his signature pizza by the slice, as well as cuts of meat and veggies wrapped in pizza crust; I will curate the Italian craft beer selection. Join us on Saturday October 19 from 12:30-3:00PM. To partake in this carb-tastic event, booking is essential!
If you want to get your hands dirty with Bonci and learn his baking techniques and recipes, he will be conducting a workshop for home bakers at Sullivan Street Bakery in Chelsea on Monday October 21 from 7:00-9:00PM. This is a hands-on class and, though the instruction will be in Italian, Elisia Menduni and I will be translating. Booking is essential and class space is limited to 15 participants.
