Pizza at Great Taste LiveGreat pizza and Great Taste combined at Green Building Supply Tuesday night with pizzaiolo Aaron Hall featured as the maestro of dough.  Aaron's passion for pies is evident as you watch his hands manipulate the once alive, dried, ground, and now alive again wheat infused with living microorganisms.  The best part was the privilege of enjoying five different types of pizza including toppings like pistachio pesto with arugula, roasted potatoes, garlic cream, and sage, and hot calabrian chiles with fontina.

Slow Money and Italian Fusion on Great Taste this Week!

Priyanka JayashankarOn the KRUU airwaves and streaming Wednesday, July 8 at 7 pm I talk with ISU's Priyanka Jayashankar, co-author of the paper, "Slow Money in an Age of Fiduciary Capitalism."  We'll discuss the nature of the slow money model, and how its investment principles are driven not only by traditional monetary goals, but the potential environmental and social benefits of the specific opportunity.  Can "slow money" spearhead the transformation of commercial agriculture to a more sustainable model?  Find out what Priyanka discovered, and its application to local and global food economies.   

Pete CiCicco-Green Building SupplyOur monthly live show at Green Building Supply took place Tuesday, July 7 with Pete DeCicco, presenting his own mash-up of ethnic cuisine-Italian mixed with a bit of ayurvedic seasonal influences-in a self-described abstract art experience full of spontaneity, chaos, and fun.

Harnessing his Italian DNA, Pete found some early local tomatoes for his summer tomato sauce-a gravy brimming with fresh garlic, basil, rosemary, oregano, fennel, the highly-prized fennel pollen, and other fresh ingredients, along with a unique addition of coriander seed.  Also, on the menu was a vegetarian stew with cannelini beans and mixed greens followed by a just-harvested combination of tender salad greens dressed with a tasty mix of olive oil, rice vinegar, dijon mustard, and nutritional yeast.  

Listen in to learn what drives Pete's cooking passion (you really missed tasting the love if you weren't there for the live show). Also, a big thanks to Everybody's Whole Foods for the terrific ingredients we use on every live show.
