The symbol soon became so popular that Ball became concerned about the over-commercialization of his symbol and feared that it had lost its original meaning and intent. According to Dr. Jonathan Levine, DMD and the Edison award winning-product inventor behind GLO Science, “maintaining great oral health is about more than just brushing and flossing daily; it is also important to incorporate a healthy diet as well.”
American pizza was unacceptable to Austrian-born chef Wolfgang Puck before he opened his famed Spago restaurant. “One of the things I couldn’t find anywhere was a good pizza,” he declares. I never liked them.” But in this video for new Yahoo Food partner Lucky Peach, Puck demonstrates how to make Spago’s popular barbecue chicken pizza with homemade dough, spicy jalapeño pepper slices, and roasted chicken dressed in barbecue sauce. The chef likes a mix of mozzarella and fontina cheeses for his chicken pie, and finishes it with a sprinkle of goat cheese. “The goat cheese has a little acidity and gives a little tanginess to our pizza,” Puck says. If you’re not using homemade barbecue sauce, Puck says KC Masterpiece makes the best store-bought variety. “I don’t get paid by them, but I still like it,” he says. Finish your pie with a bit of olive oil and herbs, and the world finally has decent pizza, according to Chef Puck. “But it all started at Spago.” Check out the recipe for Wolfgang Puck’s barbecue chicken pizza here.
I was really upset to not get an invite to Givenchy’s epic New York show, but I’m actually depressed that I didn’t attend Fromage Fashion Week, the most incredible meeting of my two loves in life: clothes and cheese. Held on Sunday ahead of Paris Fashion Week, the festival of fashion and gastronomy drew a crowd of around 500 as models hit red carpet-lined rues wearing dresses designed by Geoffrey Mignot. The women, including a beauty queen, some actresses, a journalist, and a few athletes, were clad in intricately made pieces with sheer, feathers, fur, fringe, beading, and other standout details. But the accessories were the best part as each catwalker carried her own wheel, chunk, or plate of cheese in place of a clutch or bag.
