True Original Italian Neapolitan Pizza

The recipe Pizza Neapolitan is easy to make at home. When I speak of Pizza Neapolitan I mean the one with anchovies and capers. Although Italy is a very small country and where most people speak the same language, there is often confusion about this subject: a real Neapolitan pizza recipe is always made with strong flavors. In some Italian towns the Neapolitan pizza is rigorously cooked in oven wood and lots of buffalo mozzarella, but just travel a hundred kilometers north of Italy and you will find a Neapolitan pizza made with anchovies, black olive, and capers.

ADVICE: Try your real Neapolitan Pizza with Black Olive Oil, true Mozzarella cheese, fresh basil, and a glass with the wine of your preference.

Exotic Tropical Plate Of The Week: The Original CAESAR SALAD

Caesar Salad Was Invented in Tijuana, Mexico by…

Caesar Cardini had originally operated a restaurant in San Diego, California, but relocated to Tijuana, Mexico with the advent of Prohibition.  Like many restaurateurs, Cardini believed that a fine meal in the town required cocktails before dinner and wine with dinner.  In Tijuana, he could offer both.

THE AUTHENTIC CAESAR SALAD

Original Caesar Salad Table-Side Prepared

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 romaine lettuce, split into leaves (discard the outermost leaves)
  • 1 egg (see notes)
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • 2 tsp Dijon mustard
  • 6 anchovy fillets, minced
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 tsp Worcestershire sauce
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 125ml high-grade extra-virgin olive oil
  • 30g parmesan, finely grated
  • 2 baguette slices, toasted

The Original Caesar’s Restaurant in Tijuana in 1927

According to Caesar’s daughter Rosa, her father invented the salad when a Fourth of July 1924 rush depleted the kitchen’s supplies. Cardini made do with what he had, adding the dramatic flair of the table-side tossing “by the chef.”  Caesar salad is the most spectacular salad in the world!

Workation Fabulous Idea: New Zealand A Real Paradise!

New Zealand is a small country, similar in size to Great Britain or Japan. With a population of only four million people, it’s also gloriously uncrowded.

It is made up of two main islands and numerous smaller ones. Around three-quarters of the population lives on the North Island, which is also home to the capital, Wellington.

Agriculture is the economic mainstay, but manufacturing and tourism are important. Visitors are drawn to the glacier-carved mountains, lakes, beaches, and thermal springs. Because of the islands’ geographical isolation, much of the flora and fauna are unique to the country.
