Not in the Spanish sense of the word, but a constant journey for something cheesy and delicious.

 

Truly nature’s most delicious accident. Have some fun learning about the science behind cheese.

Forgive Me, Mac & Cheese Worshipers

I may be a day late, but I promise this mac & chee tasted just as good tonight as it would have yesterday.

Cheers, to a holiday that should be celebrated more than once a year. Happy Macaroni and Cheese Day.

Most Things Taste Better Out Of A Cheese Wheel

Yes, you’re looking at that correctly. That’s spaghetti with parmigiano reggiano and parma prosciutto served in a half wheel of parmesan cheese.

At the table.
In my plate.
Then in my mouth, of course.

It’s called Spaghetti Con Prosciutto E Parmigiano, and it was SO GOOD. Although I was worried that it would slightly border on a the gimmicky side, Basta Pasta made it quite a classy experience for anybody with an appreciation for cheese. Look at those delicious cheese crystals under that prosciutto, that’s some semi-solid deliciousness.

It was a quest for queso that was well worth it, give it a try at 37 W 17th btwn. 5th and 6th ave. Also, do your best to overlook the Pee Wee Herman vibe I’m giving off in those photos.

Signed, a tyrophile.

If you love Parmesan, keep a lookout for some delicious content coming tomorrow.

Grilling Rooftop Pies

Week two of our CSA ingredients and a couple trips to Greenpoint Meat + Cheese gave us a delicious idea: pizza, rooftop style. Bayley Hazen Blue cheese from Jasper Hill Farm, spicy Italian meat, figs, plenty of veg and a charcoal grill with cherry wood chips was all we needed to get the smoky job done. Here’s how we put it all together:

Pizza 1: Blue cheese, tomato, spinach, olive oil and garlic scapes.
Pizza 2: Spicy meat, blue cheese, basil and olive oil.
Pizza 3: Figs, fresh tamarind, basil, blue cheese, olive oil with spicy meat on half.
Pizza 4: Basil, tomato, blue cheese, garlic scapes and olive oil.

The fudge-like texture of the Bayley Hazen blue made it easy to crumble over the pies, and the grassy taste mized well with the meat and vegetables. We grilled so much deliciousness that it was hard to pick a favorite, but pizzas 2 and 4 got my vote. Need to put this down to go enjoy more, thanks to Greenpoint Meat + Cheese for the good stuff!
