How to Find and Order Great Pizza in New York

Thanks for trying to teach the proper lingo. I'm really trying to teach Joe's in LA that my order of a "regular slice" which is always how I've ordered it at home in NY. Also, a little homesick for Stromboli's slices.

Does The Doughnut Vault Serve the Best Doughnut in America?

So glad they included Dottie's in Woodbury, CT. They are my dream doughnut. I like Stans in LA, but Dottie's are really special. Crispy edges, not too sweet and equally good any way you order them: plain, cinnamon, chocolate, vanilla. I hear the pot pies are great, too.

Headed Cross Country, Need Suggestions!

I drove across country NYC to LA a couple of years ago, and these are the two I wouldn't miss out on (and I would love to revisit):

Staff Picks: Our Favorite Holiday Traditions

Carey- can you give your sugar cookie recipe? They look just right. Just like my old neighbor's xmas dinosaurs.

Pete Wells vs. Guy Fieri vs. The World

The review was a hoot. Come on, the prices he's charging? There are many tourist traps to choose from in NYC and Wells was reviewing the place from that point of view. It's clear that he wasn't comparing it to either fine dining or small chef driven places, but to chains with similar menus. That review was fun to read and a good warning for those who like to be informed before spending our money and calories on crap and aggravation.

How can I make my pizza dough softer?

I recommend Kenji's NY style recipe with the food processor method. It tastes great for dough to be baked in a home oven.

Doughnuts Make the Coffee at Coffee An' Donut Shop in Westport, Connecticut

Glad your covering the goods in CT. You must check out the doughnuts at Dottie's in Woodbury, CT. I like the doughnuts at Cofffee An', but I LOVE the ones at Dottie's.

NY to LA roadtrip-must eats along southern route?

FLorian Bellanger made it on Martha Stewart, and although I have not tried my hand at the recipe, I have eaten his Kouing Aman, and they are my choice for part of a last meal. Here's the link to the recipe.

Ham-tastic recipe?

I'm doing Nigella's ham in coke. I asked people on this boad which kind of ham (Nigella isn't that specific). The recipe is much lauded round the net.

A genuine kouign amann in New York City?

Alas Fauchon is gone. They had ones that were my choice for last meal.

Nigella's Ham in Coke-what ham?

I'm going to look for an uncooked cured bone-in. Her other recipe for ham in coke from another book calls for the bone. sounds better. thanks all, and if anyone has any comments from making it, I'd love to hear them. I'm going to make it for christmas, so I have time to think about it.

Nigella's Ham in Coke-what ham?

Thanks for the link, but she also states a "mild cure" and gives direction should one have a "salty" piece...fresh ham as we know it should have neither and is just a cut of pork leg, I believe.
