Quote of the Day: 'Time Remaining...'

Quote of the Day"Pizza tracker? F*** yeah, the pizza tracker. If you don't know what the pizza tracker is, then get your ass online right now and order a pizza from Domino's. It's the equivalent of a loading bar on a web browser, except at the end of the loading you get a delicious pizza." Mark H., on UHpinions.com

[And if you think that quote is good, the story it comes from is even better. If it's to be believed, the Domino's deliveryman saved Mark H.'s life. Via @mathowie]

Bourdain's wife Ottavia is a Milk Burger fan. [via Eater] More

Quote of the Day: Anthony Mangieri on What Will Make Una Pizza Napoletana Stand Out in SF

"Well, I've been meaning to come out here for a long time. I guess you could say that the timing took too long. But, look, I started this whole wacky frenzy [about Neapolitan pizza]. All those other guys know that. Everyone who's planning on opening a Neapolitan pizzeria has been to my place in NYC to check it out. I've tried the pizza at some of the new places out here. It's all good and it's all different. But I've been making pizza since I was 15 years old. I started Una Pizza Napoletana in 1996 when no one else... More

'The Rise of the Kitchen Bitch'

"When did a certain group of men take over the womanly art of home cooking? And why can't we who are married to them just sit back and call their conquest of the kitchen a feminist triumph? If you had told a mistress of the house in the 1950s that one day her husband would julienne a carrot, she would have wept with joy ... The first wave of feminists considered liberation from kitchen duties, along with liberation from housework and enforced vapidity, an absolute must." —Hanna Rosin, on Double X... More

Quote of the Day: Street Food for Thought

"In a lot of ways I think food is starting to take the place in culture that rock and roll took 30 years ago, in that eating has become incredibly political.
