Not only Margarita: Everything You Need to Know About Pizza (part 1)

Everybody knows the Italian national dish in the form of a round open tortilla with tomatoes and mozzarella cheese. And although the pizza boom has long passed, pizzerias are becoming more and more every day. Recently, the Scrocchiarella pizzeria was launched by the creators of the Lukovka chain, Pavel and Anastasia Sidorovs. Friends Forever Company co-founder and Local Band Group founder Pavel Kosterenko opened Studio pizzeria in the Kuntsevo Plaza shopping center. And in March, the third People & Pasta restaurant, Yuri Murashko, appeared.

The unusual pizza in the city began with Isaac Correa, who opened the Montalto pizzeria in 2011, named after his friend and pizza fan Lenny Montalto.

Forms and types of pasta (part 2)

Lasagne – lasagna. Wide, flat and long pasta. Thin plates come in many sizes. In addition, they have straight or wavy edges. Lasagna is designed for baking in the form of a cake, acting as a biscuit. Instead of cream, it is layered with various fillings (meat, cheese, vegetables, seafood) and sauces (bechamel, bolognese). It is considered one of the most popular types of pasta in Italy. Linguine – linguine, which means reeds. Macaroni is very similar to thick spaghetti, but longer and flattened. Served with tomato or fish sauces. Maccheroni – Macaroni. This pasta is probably the very first representative of the pasta family in our country. And it was this pasta that gave the name to the whole class of pasta. The cavities inside the pasta allow light sauces to get in and become juicy. Orecchiette – orekte or ears. A small round paste, with a diameter of not more than 2 cm, looks like cute ears. It is added to soups and salads or prepared as an independent dish. Orzo – orzo. Unusual pasta in size and shape resembling ordinary rice. Most often added to salads and soups. Continue reading
