Worlds Best Breakfast

My Breakfast at Villa Maria Agroturismo, Minori

The World’s Best Breakfast? Yes, well maybe. Or maybe not, but for me, the best breakfast I’ve ever had in my life. I came across Villa Maria Agroturismo when I was watching vidoes of Sicily and The Amalfi Coast on Youtube one night. I was getting ready to go on my trip and I was just looking for inspritation and a way to psych myself for my upcomong vacation. I just happened upon this video made by David Rocco. David Rocco is a Celebrity Chef from Toronto and he had done a series of food & wine videos on Italy. This particular one that I came across was about this wonderful little agroturismo Lemon Grove Farm in Minaori Italy on The Amalfi Coast called Villa Maria Agroturismo. Well I loved the video and fell in love with this place and the people who run it, husband and wife team Vincenzo & Maria. Vincenzo tends to his farm which is mainly a wonderful Lemon farm, but Vincenzo also has a good number of Olive Trees to make olive oil, he has grapevines from which he gets grapes to make a wonderful red wine and a white as well, he grows all sorts of fruits and vegetables, he has chickens for eggs and meat, as well as pigs so he can make his own homemade Salami and Prosciutto.

Yes Vincenzo takes care of the farm and he also runs his little inn agrosturismo that has 6 lovely little rooms way up in the mountain top of Minori. They also have a nice little restauarnt that you eat, yes the world’s best breakfast and a marvelous 4 Course Dinner every night made my Maria with all the food made from products from their farm; Salami, Wine, Olive Oil, fruits and vegetbles, Pork Chops, Frittata (eggs) etc.. You’ll not get a better meal anywhere, I promise you.

HOT DOGS BURGERS and BOWLING JERSEY STYLE

White Manna
Hackensack, New Jersey
 
 
New York’s best burgers in Jersey?  .. Well, one of the best.  New Jersey does have some great burgers and dogs. It was once the Diner Capital of the World and though most are gone, a few old joints can be found here and there. One great old place is White Manna Hamburgers on River Road in Hackensack, New Jersey. The place is awesome, New York has nothing like it. Wish we did. The structure of White Manna Hamburgers is quite rare. First off, old diners are sadly a rarity. This structure is a sort-of a mini-diner. Well a beleive it was designed simply as a Burger Stand, and that’s what it is, built by the Paramount Company of Oakland, New Jersey some time in the 1930’s. The design is buitiful and I’ve never seen another like it .. White Manna is a live, living Museum Piece that feeds people tasty burgers and shows them a good time. You’ve gotta love it. I took a trip there with my brother Jimmy a couple of weeks ago. We planned a nice little day together, Bowling at Wallington Lanes our childhood Bowling Alley and still one of America’s best .. We planned on going to White Manna and Rutt’s Hut for “Rippers” but changed our plans slightly. Instead of Rutt’s Hut, Jimmy took me to White Mana in Jersey City. I had never been to White Mana, JC though I had passed it a thousand times. So Jimmy wanted me to check it out. I beleive Jimmy likes White Mana JC better than WHite Manna in Hackensack, I’m the reverse, though I did like the place in Jersey City as well which was a Burger Joint at The 1939 Worlds Fair and brought to Jersey City after the fair and has operated ther formore than 70 years. You’ll notice a similarity in names. The one in Jersey City is spelled with one “n” and Hackensack White Manna 2 “N’S” .. There’s an explanation. When White Mana JC was opening in the Mid 40s the sitn maker mad a mistake and made their sign with one n instead of the 2 he was supposed to write the sigan as White Manna .. He mad it with one n, the owner accepted it and never changed it. End of stroy.
Back to White Manna HAckensack. Well, the Burgers at White Manna are dam good. I love them. They’re small little Slider Type Burgers cooked with onions and put between a Martins Potato Roll. Yumm!!! The are tasty as Hell. I Love them. I Love going to this beautiful little Gem of a Burger Stand and Love the Show they put on as they grill your burger and everyone else’s. It’s pure poetry in motion.
Yes we went bowling, we had Burgers at White Manna in Hackensack and at White Mana JC .. After we finished bowling with beers and Big Lebowski White Russians we rode around a little checking out our old stomping grounds. Jimmy asked me if I wanted to go to The Colonial Diner in Lyndhurst. He didn’t have to ask twice. The Colonial Diner is one of those few Old-School Stainless Steel Diners that Jersey used to be famous for .. The diner has recently been renovated but they kept the old character intact. Jimmy had the Pot Roast Special, I the Prime Rib. We both got Soup, Bread, and plenty of Potato and Veggies with our meal. It was great. I wonderful top off to a wonderful day of Jersey Burgers, Diners, and Bowling. Nice.

WHITE RUSSIAN CUPCAKES

White Russians Cupcakes? No Dude doesn’t make them. There’re Maudy’s little invention. Even though she doesn’t live with The Dude, she likes him quite a bit. Heck, he helped her conceive. So Maude felt like showing a little gratitude. Knowing how much Jeffrey (as Maude calls him) loves his Kahlua, Maude created this in honor of his Dudeness, “The Other Jeffrey Lebowski,” a.k.a. The Dude. “They’re right tasty,” as The Cowboy Stranger would say, and quite easy to make. Enjoy em!

Did Anthony Bourdain Invent Food Porn

 

 

Screen Shot 2015-07-15 at 1.34.52 PM

 

Anthony Bourdain

KITCHEN CONFIDENTIAL

The BOOK THAT MADE TONY FAMOUS

BUT DID HE INVENT FOOD PORN ???

NOT !

Well Tony popularized the term FOOD PORN, and did so without a doubt more than any one single person in this World. Yes Tony did, and is still doing so, with his wonderful Food Shows (Food Porn) : NO RESERVATIONS, PATS UNKNOWN, The LAYOVER and other Bourdain Shows, all absolutely wonderful, and as only Tony could do,     “Fugettabout it FOOD NETWORK, you can Only DREAM of Doing something as Masterful as Mr. Bourdain.” Keep Dreaming ..

So Who Did INVENT FOOD PORN, you want to know? Well a writer named Rosalind Coward in her book FEMALE DESIRE (1984)  …

Here you go, the passage Mis Coward wrote, using the term Food Porn for the first time in the History of the World ..

“Cooking food and presenting it beautifully is an act of servitude. It is a way of expressing affection through a gift… That we should aspire to produce perfectly finished and presented food is a symbol of a willing and enjoyable participation in servicing others. Food pornography exactly sustains these meanings relating to the preparation of food. The kinds of picture used always repress the process of production of a meal. They are always beautifully lit, often touched up.” (p. 103)

There it is, the Invention of FOOD PORN, not Anthony Bourdain but Rosalind Coward

 When Italian-Americans Cook

by Daniel Bellino-Zwicke

10 BEST PIZZERIAS NAPOLI

1.  1. Da Michele 

on Via Sersale, 13 – Tel +390815539204. 

Let’s start with what some people may consider the inconveniences- the restaurant is rustic to say the least (almost spartan and very much “no frills”), no reservations are accepted, you always have to wait in line (we had 40 people before us!!) and they serve only 2 kinds of pizza. Nothing but the pizza margherita and pizza marinara here, using only fiordilatte cow´s milk and sweet , tantalizing San Marzano tomatoes. So why do we recommend this place? Because this is the best pizza in Naples in our opinion!!! Since 1870 the Condurros have been making pizzas for their hungry patrons, from  tourists, to local Napoletani to VIPs (they are particularly  proud they had the famous soccer player Maradona as an approving diner!)


Screen Shot 2015-05-24 at 5.55.43 PM

2.  Il Pizzaiolo del Presidente 



on Via Tribunali, 120/121Tel. +39081210903

Right in the heart of Spaccanapoli, the historic center of Naples, Signore Ernesto Cacialli welcomed us here with a huge smile. Pizzaiolo since the time he was 7 (!!!), Ernesto invited former US president Bill Clinton – who was in Naples for G8 – to taste his creations (back in 1994) and since then his pizzeria  (the “president´s” pizzeria) was re-named in his honor. Buono!
 
 



3.  Brandi 

on Salita S.Anna di Palazzo, 1- 2 (angolo via Chiaia)Tel +39081416928, website here.

Close to the elegant Chiaia neighbourhood and to Piazza Plebiscito, this is where the mythical “pizza margherita” was invented. Although pizzas have apparently been around in one form or another since Ancient Roman times, Raffaele Esposito is credited with creating the Margherita. He worked at this very pizzeria (established in 1780) and in 1889 he was asked to bake 3 different kinds of pizza for the royal visit of King Umberto I and Queen Margherita of Savoy. The Queen’s favorite was a pizza that had the colors of the Italian flag: basil leaves for green, mozzarella for white, and tomatoes for red. Named Pizza Margherita in her honor, this is how this pizza is still universally known . Brandi is one of the more elegant and atmopsheric pizzerias and offer many traditional Napoletano side dishes as well. While Italians tend to drink beer with pizza, they offer some nice Falanghina white wines and Aglianico based reds here as well.
 
4. Di Matteo 
(Via dei Tribunali, 94 – tel +39081455262)
Founded in 1936 by Salvatore Di Matteo, the pizzeria was then managed by the “scugnizzi pizzaioli” (street urchin pizzaioli kids, usually  poor, going to school only when they had to and spending a lot of time hanging out in the narrow streets of Naples) that used to work for him.  Today, it is run by Raffaele Marigliano, who 50 years ago created an amazing pizza con alici e cicinielli (anchovies and newborn very very little fish, not produced any more). Here you cannot miss the pizza fritta, a deep fried pizza with ricotta cheese, provola cheese, tomato sauce and sugna (lard). Heaven on earth!
 
5. Pizzeria Trianon da Ciro
on Via P. Colletta, 46 Tel: +39.081.5539426 
Established in 1923, this is a BIG  pizzeria, with 3 floors. Here you can find exquisite (made fresh daily) buffalo milk mozzarella as a topping as well as the full range of  pizza toppings you normally expect. They have 29 in their list and their specialty is salsiccia (Italian sausage) and friarielli (a kind of sprouting broccoli that grows only in the countryside around Naples, see photo below). Recommended.
 
 
 
 
6. Sorbillo 
on via Tribunali, 32 tel. +39081.446643
This is another pizza “temple” in the “centro storico” of Naples; run today by daughter Anna Sorbillo, a member of the 21st generation pizza making family. Sorbillo can also deliver to your home or hotel (in historic center of Naples) and you can order on line.
 
 
 
7. Da Ettore 
(Via S. Lucia, 56 – tel +39081 7640498)
Right on the seafront, facing the pretty Castel dell’Ovo marina/fortress on the elegant Santa Lucia boulevard (where politicians, actors and tourists frequent) the pizza here is truly excellent.  But apart from pizza, they also excel in the “frittura all’italiana”, a sinfully delicious mix of deep fried aubergines (eggplant), zucchini, mozzarella, arancini (rice croquettes), cauliflower, potato croquettes, zeppulelle con alghe (salty doughnut-like fried thingie with seaweed).
 
 
 
Some Tasty ARANCINI at Da ETTORE
 
8. Lombardi 
on via Foria, 12 tel +39081456220
Close to the FABULOUS archeological museum of Naples (with its fascinating Erotic room of Pompeii mosaics, and the Farnese collection), Pizzeria Lombardi was founded in the turn of the century by Enrico Lombardi who sold pizza in Brazil before setting up his pizzeria in Naples. Nowadays it is run by his grandsons Nando and Gigi. They offer also a variety of simple, perfectly executed dishes, but pizza is what you come for. Their specialty is pizza with smoked provola cheese. 
 
 
 
 
 
9. Antica Pizzeria Port’Alba
(Via Port’Alba, 18  – tel +390814421061)
This is the oldest pizzeria in Naples and Italy. Founded in 1738 as seller of street food, it became a real pizzeria in 1830. Vincenzo Luciano is the 5th generation to run the business.
 
 
10. La Notizia 
on Via Caravaggio, 53-55 – tel +390817142155
Named after the movie (the owner Enzo Coccia loves “Citizen Kane”), this pizzeria opens for dinners only, allowing time for the yeast to create the perfect dough. A real treat is the pizza bianca – without tomatoes – with scarola salad, aubergines (eggplant) and provola cheese. It is not located in a touristy neighborhood, but it is absolutely worth going to the upper part of the town to reach it. Authentic Napoli.
If you will be Pizza touring in Naples, and want to try even more pizzerias beyond this list, you´ll find a mega list of Pizzerias all over Campania

DANIEL BELLINO MAKING SAUCE
Or IS IT GRAVY !!!!
I saw Steve Martorano on Jimmy Kimmel last night. Steve is great. He’s the King of Meatballs, and quite possibly GRAVY. Italian Sunday Gravy that is! Or is it Sunday Sauce … Steve empahtically says it’s GRAVY, “IT AIN’T SAUCE” !!! And Steve is adoment about this … Steve says, “If it has Meat it’s Gravy, and if it doesn’t as in the case with Tomato Sauce then it’s SAUCE … Basta!
Yes Steve is right about this, but that doesn’t mean others are wrong. And Steve has stated that without a doubt in Brookly, New York and South Philadelphia where Steve is from, they all call it Gravy … But there’s always a debate. Some simply call a Italian sauce made with Italian Pork Sausages, Meatballs, Braciole, Spare Ribs, and other meat items (even chicken), that if its tomatoes braised with meat, it’s GRAVY and not Sauce, aka Sunday Gravy .. But there are some who call this Sauce, or Sunday Sauce … Well, different people call it different things, and really there is no one right or wrong answer. I myself and all my family members in Jersey, we all called it Gravy, as do most in the New York, New Jersey, and Philadelphia areas do.
So why do I call my book Sunday Sauce you ask? Well because it can be. It can be called Sunday Sauce, and as a book title it just sounds better. And for those who don’t know, there is a whole science and method to naming, producing, selling, and marketing a book, thus for my book, the name Sunday Sauce … 
And hey, I’m not going to get into a beef with Steve, the guy is awesome and one of the greatest ambassadors of all to what I consider a trully Great and Ligitimate Cusisine of Italian America, that being Italian-American Food (Cusisine).
Anyway, back to the Jimmy Kimmel Show, Steve and the Sunday Gravy … Steve showed Jimmy how to make it, with a bit of fun and funny ribbing by Steve of Jimmy … The Gravy was made, and Steve sat down with Guillermo and Jimmy and ate it.
Well Gravy? We have al sorts of Pasta, Zuppa, Pizza, Meatball Parms, Veal & Chicken Parm, Sausage & Peppers and lots more, but there’s one Italian-American dish that rains Supreme above all other, and that’s our beloved Sunday Sauce on Sunday, or as Steve would say, 
“I Ain’t Sauce, It’s GRAVY” !!!!
