Heidi, Ken and the kids joined the Phoenix party tonight. We are now 10 adults and 4 kids. Nothing better for a big crowd of eaters than a pizza dinner. We started with make your own pizzas for the kids. We then had three adult pizzas. They are all knavisknitchen favorites. Onion, fennel and Gouda. Tomato and mozzarella. Potato, arugula and fontina. A great party. Many are looking forward to Santa coming tonight!


Robin and I had a wonderful dinner at Locanda in San Francisco with my parents during Thanksgiving Week.  It was a truly remarkable meal.  One of the first yummy things we had was a Pizza Bianca w/ Cauliflower and Calabrian Chile.  Tonight, looking for a Solstice appetizer, I attempted to repeat that dish.

The elements

Good for sure.  Not even close to Locanda.  The difference?  Their bread.  More spice.  Will work on it, though.  A funny dinner to cook.

Last night was a Middlesex ’96 reunion.  Dave, my best friend from high school, came over with his parents and brother.  Dave is a prolific urban farmer and pizza cook extraordinaire.  He made 16 personal pizzas that we all topped with items like squash blossoms and pancetta.  A few pics from the night.
