We are among the best Pizzerias in the World

It’s not us who is claiming this, but a heavyweight guide called “WHERE TO EAT PIZZA” published by Phaidon. It is a detailed collection of the best places to go when your desire for pizza, the real pizza, is insatiable, no matter where you are in the world, and you need to eat. The texts have been complied by Daniel Young, a food critic from New York who has moved to London, and his guide is set to become a must-buy at all bookshops and online.

AUTUMN EVENINGS: STORIES OF PIZZA

As has now become a traditional event, it’s time for the three “Autumn Evenings” for foodies! The common denominator for this year’s evenings will be life stories and anecdotes that this extraordinary dish evokes.

Here’s the complete program.

 

WEDNESDAY 28th OCTOBER 2015 – Faenza
HAPPY BIRTHDAY ‘ O FIORE MIO !
A STORY FROM NAPLES:
The story of the “PIZZERIA DA ATTILIO ALLA PIGNASECCA” told by ANTONIO MATTOZZI (Neapolitan writer and historian)
The Neapolitan pizza is the mum of all pizzas. Right from the second half of the 19th century, this
dish that is symbolic of Italian identity all over the world, came to life in Naples. Pizza was made at home and in small shops. It was a street food, folded in half like a book, and it must have cost very little because it was a part of the people’s staple diet. Attilio Bachetti is a son and grandson of this “art” and he is a great interpreter of this fantastic Neapolitan tradition.
On the other hand, Antonio Mattozzi is considered the historical memory of Neapolitan pizza. He is the author of a book concerning pizza called “Una storia napoletana: pizzerie e pizzaiuoli napoletani tra Sette e Ottocento” (A Neapolitan story: Neapolitan pizza restaurants and pizza cooks between the 18th and 19th centuries), published by Slow Food Editore and which is also going to be published in England.
The dinner will be accompanied by selection of wines by Les Caves des Pyrene, well known wine
distributor which selects small wineries capable of enhancing the character of the territories from
where the wines have originated. To conclude there will be a mountain of zabaione profiteroles.

OUR AUTUMN NOVELTIES

We all know that summer does not last forever. However, apart from the days getting shorter, autumn still holds great emotions for us, especially when it comes to our palate.

From 22nd September, as we are used to doing, we will be changing our menus.Amongst the many novelties: a new and original dough made with the Gentil Rosso Grain produced by the San Biagio Vecchio Farm, then there is the new Pizza dello Chef, created by the sous chef of the Osteria Francescana of Modena, Takahiko Kondo, then an interesting new range of wines from Les Caves des Pyrenee, which will be presented at the new evenings of Autumn 2015 in Faenza.

Come and see us soon in Faenza and in Bologna.

MAX POGGI PRESENTS THE NEW “PIZZA DELLO CHEF”

It has now become a tradition: one of the new entries in every new menu is the “Pizza dello Chef” and this summer menu’s version has been created by Max Poggi of the “Al Cambio” Restaurant of Bologna, absolutely one of the best restaurants of the Emilia region’s capital city.

Its main ingredient is raw codfish, whose saltiness contrasts perfectly with various symbolic summer elements: vinegar marinated onion of Medicina, concentrated tomato juice, green olive powder.

This pizza calls for just two things: the first is to taste it. The second is to book a table right now at the “Al Cambio” restaurant so you will be sure to have a truly great meal.

THE “INCHIOSTRI” – INKS EXHIBITION BY ENRICO VERSARI

The artist Enrico Versari has come to Bologna with his engravings and etchings, and he is now exhibiting at ‘O Fiore Mio – Pizze di Strada (piazza Malpighi 8d/e). The exhibit “Inchiostri” curated by Antonella Ravagli , officially opened on 29th May, and will stay on show until 7th July.

 

Enrico Versari (enricoversari.com) takes visitors on a journey into the discovery of ink and all of its possible applications: from engravings to etchings, as well as xylography , right up to that so-called “black manner” with which this artist from Faenza achieves a practically photographic effect. The markings and the drawings are Versari’s artistic initials. He designs “stages” upon which the composition of the objects are just like actors playing on stage, while for the “backdrops” he uses pages torn from telephone books, old dictionaries or pages of newspapers, which have been recovered and assembled using the collage technique.

 

The travelling exhibit “Inchiostri” will conclude its first leg in Bologna on 7th July, to then move on to ‘O Fiore Mio in Faenza on 20th July, where it will be possible to view until the 3rd September.

THE ITINERARY DINNER: WE WERE THERE​

This year was the eighth edition, following its debut in 2010, on Friday 15th May the itinerary dinner came back to Faenza, turning the streets, galleries and all those places tied to the ancient art of ceramics into the beating heart of the centre of the city and of the everyday life, into freely accessible stopovers along one single long, food and artistic based journey, which was shown dish by dish, on a map that could be followed as one pleased.

All of this was tied to the theme that launched a further creative challenge to the participants: “Complicity”.

The Pizza Restaurant ‘O Fiore Mio took part in the programme with their offer called “Matrimonio all’Italiana” – An Italian Wedding, that is two slices of  “pizza capricciosa” accompanied by Villa Papiano’s wines, who this year collaborated with us in this year’s event.
