Christie's Bakery on Broadway
Just in time for winter! A lot of folks have been wishing for years that Christie's Bakery would open a second location in the Broadway Area. Yeah finally!!
It's called Il Secondo and it's all about good coffee, real bread and authentic Neapolitan pizza cooked in a wood-fired oven. I warn you, this is not pizza for those folks who want gobs of meat and cheese on a big chewy crust. This pizza is all about thin exquisite flavour. It would not be an exaggeration to say this is the best pizza I have ever tasted. Really!
I'll also warn you that Il Secondo closes at 6 pm, so don't tarry.
(While there, check out the rustic beam over the pizza oven and note the similarity to the beams in my new kitchen. Yes, they're from the same tree!)
"Out of Old Saskatchewan Kitchens" celebrates the colourful people and recipes that populated our province. It follows my first book "Prairie Feast: A Writer's Journey Home for Dinner." Saskatchewan tastes great -- I wrote the book on it!!
