As is typical for me, this pizza is bass ackwards….
The tomatoes are yellow and the onions are red.
Actually, the tomatoes are an heirloom variety that is very popular here called Ananas.
Ananas is the French word for pineapple as well as for these multi-colored tomatoes.
Remember the Red Onion Marmalade I made a few weeks back?
I decided … Continue reading.....
First the food, then the plea for help.
I may have complained about our cold spring but I have not complained about the abundance of cold weather vegetables the spring produced.
It’s been an incredible year for artichokes, both colors of asparagus and green garlic.
Other years I have had to be careful and somewhat sparing in my use of … Continue reading.....
I went through the remaining shallots in the cave the other day. I had thought most of them were destined for the compost but I managed to save a basket-full for the kitchen and a few for the garden.

After I made the second batch I decided a proper Pizza Pesto Rosso was in order.
In the past I’ve tried Mozzarella di Bufala on pizza and it … Continue reading.....

When I have pizza in the U.S. it’s … Continue reading.....
