+1 on the Green And Black. It is pretty nice.

The Food Lab: How to Make the Best Pumpkin Pizza

Sorry, I really do love pizza but some of these weird combos appear to me that people are just trying to be trendy rather than talking about pizza. That being said I have several times had a pizza w pork belly, goat cheese and green onions at Diavola in geyserville that was exceptional. Pumpkin, Squash, artichokes, chicken please that is flatbread w toppings not pizza

An Open Letter to Serious Eaters

Has there been any discussion by staff to expand what happens here on the wknd. ? It has been pretty empty for a long time.

An Open Letter to Serious Eaters

If the move to putting Talk onto social media was all that critical the powers that be could have incorporated a button of sorts that would link folks to a menu of links to the various sites-just a thought.

If Ed Levine authored this article why is he not replying to any of the comments.

I understand that this is a business for those involved. I realize that for businesses to remain viable they need to offer something that other people do not, or in a form that makes it more appealing to the prospective buyer. Because I am an older person I do not perceive some of these changes as for the good of the users of the site. I still enjoy using my black bakelite rotary dial phone which has been in use since at least the mid 1960s. Try to do that w the phones made today. Yep I'm a dinosaur and will probably continue to be one.

Someone mentioned earlier in the comments that they hoped that SE would be adding some wknd staff as Talk was one of the few areas with any activity during that period-essentially the site shuts down on the wknds. An apt observation from my perspective.

The 1st clue that things were headed in the wrong direction was the initiation of Serious Eats dating. Now we are seeing more adverts w a young female. Then the switch to social media. I expect thatfuture changes will not be any more inviting. You have set the precedent. Will I continue to visit SE, yes, just not with as much enthusiasm. I wish you could have maintained your purpose and drive wo selling compromise to what you were about

Anyone with a suggestion for another forum type site that those who will miss Talk might be interested in ?

It would have been a more accurate article if it had said that the social media move was effective today. Disappointed.

Here is another vote against moving Talk and Photograzing to social media. Although I did not view them on a regular basis, I did enjoy them. I found Talk to be a useful tool when seeking an answer to a question. I respectfully request that those with authority reconsider this decision.

Sable Ridge. One needs an appointment but there is no fee. Spending an hour or two w Chuck and Monica is a delight !

Is "Serious Eats Dating" a joke or parody or what?

This is just soooooooooooooo sad. Time to look for an alternate site.

Poll: Eggs on Burgers: Way or No Way?

The Daily Meal's '101 Best American Pizzas'

sorry about the duplication. When I first accessed the thread it showed only 10 comments-it's doing it again now. Why I do not know ? Could not find a way to delete the second post ?

Diavola in Geyeserville, Ca. makes some pretty nice pies. Salsiccia-house sausage, red onions and pecorino, Cha Cha Cha-house smoked pork belly, roasted red pepper, goat cheese and green onions. Both delicious.

Corked, Cooked, Bretty, Bad: How to Spot 7 Common Wine Flaws

We had some 10yr old Petite Sirah last year that I thought might have been corked due to aromas akin to those described above. We discussed w the winemaker on a subsequent visit and he suggested opening 5-6 hrs or more before drinking and the funkiness would be gone. Did not have an issue again. He also comped us 3 free bottles.

Where to Buy Wine in Chicago

I think that Sam's had a better overall variety than the Binny's it is now. That being said although being pretty small the Hyde Park Binny's has an excellent aid to your buying experience in Greg. He is very knowledgeable and helpful. Our son used to live in the neighborhood and we often frequent that store. I would give it a very high rating for customer service.

Introducing the Serious Eats Magazine!

Big mistake here in putting it out on Apple products only. I do not like the way they do business. If you plan on tying Serious Eats to Apple count me out.

Foolproof Pan Pizza

Great recipe. We had it last night. Next time I will transfer the dough to my regular dough rising bucket. The bowl i use is very large and I am plasticwrap challenged. The pan I used has 2 little pouring spouts, that, the handle and the seasoning made it difficult to get the plastic wrap to stick as well. Used a pan lid instead. Now if I had a clear glass one that would be even better.
