Recommended food pairings from The Som:

I love when Bovee and I have a show that we have always wanted to do but never quite get too.  I’m so happy we finally did it.  One of the things I enjoyed about this episode is that when I’m at Zipp’s, I am often asked for a good pizza wine.  For me the problem is, at home, I already have something open and then my wife suggests pizza for dinner so I give recommendations based on sound food and wine pairing techniques.  Except for the Enotria Dolcetto, I was just figuring these other two would work.  It turns me on that they not only worked, but worked well.   But enough of me patting myself on the back.

Ever made a calzone?  Try the Dolcetto with this recipe.   By the way…if you make your own dough and live within 10 blocks of a pizza shop you are wasting your time.  Stop in and ask your pizza guy for some fresh dough.  He may charge you a dollar or, like my guy, he may not charge you at all.  Other than that, follow this recipe, pour the Dolcetto, and enjoy your life.

Or…if you happen to live in the Twin Cities, swing your cute little patootie over to Cossetta’s on West Seventh Street in St. Paul (across and just down the street from the Xcel Energy Center) and get yourself one killer piece of pie.
