Mouthwatering Tease

I’ve been to New Orleans several times.

The first was with Nathan when I was pregnant with Princess.

The second was for Mom 2.0, where I had my first experience with a John Besh Restaurant.

Oh. Em. Gee.

I do not say that lightly.

Oh. My. Good. Giddy Aunt.

If you have an opportunity to experience a John Besh restaurant…

DO IT!!!


That gorgeous proscuitto topped pizza up there was made by Alon, who is quite wonderful and can be found at Domenica

I am on a mission to replicate this pizza.

It’s one of those meals that deserves a moment of silence.

This pizza, the whole Domenica and John Besh experience is one of those things where when Nathan and I talk about traveling — I tell him:   “When we go back to New Orleans, I’ll find a way to make sure Alon makes us this pizza…” it is something that EVERYONE should experience, especially pizza snobs and doubters.

The last time that I went to New Orleans was with Zatarain’s and that experience… well I have no words…

  3. Hey Rachel! Sorry I’m linking up so late, but I’m trying to get back into the bloggy swing of things after an insane summer and the posts aren’t flowing as quickly as I’d like. LOL That prosciutto pizza looks positively s-i-n-f-u-l. I made flatbread pizzas not long ago with prosciutto, but I’m sure they couldn’t have held a candle to Alon’s. Eating at one of John Besh’s restaurants is high on my foodie bucket list. You lucky girl… Anywhoooo, sorry for the mindless blathering and thanks so much for hosting! Have an awesome rest of the week! ~Mary
