Make a Historic Boston Dessert That Became a Japanese Favorite

In 2019, a Boston restaurant closed. Normally, a restaurant closing in a major city wouldn’t cause much of a commotion, but this was different. Durgin-Park had been open for almost 200 years, and was famed for serving what food historian Paul Freedman calls the “first forgotten cuisine” of the United States.

Durgin-Park, located in Boston’s Faneuil Hall market, was truly the last of its kind. Something of a tourist trap in its later years, the restaurant slung crock after crock of Boston baked beans (once the city’s calling card) as well as crowd-pleasing fare like pasta and onion rings. But

Let’s *Attempt to Make* Pizzafari’s Children’s Dessert Pizza!

Sometimes a recipe, like moments in life, doesn’t quite turned out as you planned. Sometimes things seem so good in theory, but when it comes to practical application, something zigs when you thought it was going to zag.

It doesn’t mean that the end result is necessarily bad, it just means that it’s different than what you had originally expected. Case in point: Pizzafari’s Children’s Dessert Pizza. But I digress.

Italy Is Considering Banning This Type of Dessert

Buon appetito means “enjoy your meal!” in Italy… and when Italians say this, they mean it. If you’ve been brainstorming an Italian getaway when the worst of the pandemic is behind us, it sounds like the Italian government is looking to guarantee you the best eating ever. In fact, Italy is making considerations to place parameters around one must-eat Italian treat so that if it’s not l’ottimo—meaning, the best you’ve ever had—the person who sells it to you may pay a huge price.
