Meeting Nick Malgieri at IACPNYC
Having all your favorite cookbooks come to life with the authors standing right there was so much fun at Sunday’s International Association of Culinary Professionals Expo Book & Blog event. Nick Malgieri, the former Executive Pastry Chef at Windows on the World and seminal cookbook writer was eager to advise what to serve with Pizza Rustica, an Easter dish that can easily accompany a light vegetable soup and dessert of sorbet with cookies. I mentioned to him that the recipe is the selection for tomorrow ‘s Tuesdays With Dorie and was reasurred that it is important to cool the Pizza Rustica completely before serving. Otherwise, the risk is the filling may not have time to set up properly. Can’t wait.
And the always gracious and bubbly NY Times writer, Melissa Clark shared insights to calzone making. This feature will run in a few weeks and I’m ready for the challenge.
