Because of the Yanks-Phillies World Series that starts tonight, lots of media (and the mayors) have been doing cheesesteak-cheesecake wagers. I’m glad that for our challenge, we stuck with what really is truly New York: pizza!
So if you read the article in today’s paper — here a link right here — you’ll know that I’ve thrown down the gauntlet: I’m taking the competition from the ball field to the kitchen, and challenging you all to one-up the Philly Cheesesteak. Think you can do it?
Meanwhile, down at our sister paper in Delaware, just outside of Philly, the readers of the News Journal are trying to make a better pizza. (I know, I know… I pity them, too.) Check out the competition on their food blog, Second Helpings. And here’s the story that food writer Patty Talorico shared with Journal News readers today.
Here’s my try: a soft, buttery, Parker-House style roll with thinly sliced rib-eye with caramelized shallots, gorgonzola and delicate chanterelle mushrooms. Mmmm.
So c’mon guys — let’s beat Philly at it own game! Can you one-up the cheesesteak?
