Dear Project Foodie Users,

Sadly and with a heavy heart, I have decided to shut down Project Foodie on December 28th, 2015.

The past 9 years have been a wonderful journey — I met many amazing people, learned an incredible amount and had a great time helping food lovers (including myself) keep track of recipes.

I hope that you too have enjoyed Project Foodie and the fruits of my labor, and that of the various people who helped me over the years with Project Foodie.

For those of you who would like the details of recipes in your recipe box please reach out to me ( This email address is being protected from spam bots, you need Javascript enabled to view it )

For the Young Foodie: Tony and the Pizza Champions

Here at Project Foodie we are committed to serving the Foodie Lifestyle and that includes even the youngest Foodie.  As a mom I've been pleasantly surprised at the appearance of all things food that have been popping up for kids.  More and more people are becoming excited about getting the kids into the kitchen and that is a really good thing. 

I nearly squealed for joy when I heard about the book Tony and the Pizza Champions (Chronicle Books 2009), my oldest daughter loves pizza and she loves for me to read to her even more.  The book written by real-life pizza tossing champion Tony Gemignani tells the story of how he was invited to attend the World Pizza Championship in Italy and his journey across the country assembling his pizza tossing team.  Tony and his team were ultimately named the World Pizza Champs.  

The book will be a real treat for the young pizza lover in your house and the colorful illustrations make the story so much fun your little reader will be cheering Tony and his team on until the very end. Included in the book is Tony's now famous pizza dough recipe and instructions on how to toss pizza dough just like Tony does. I've found that all that pizza tossing makes for some pretty interesting clean-up so don't say I didn't warn you.  Be sure to also check out the pizza champs website for real footage of Tony tossing a little pizza dough.

I think I've seen these guys on the Today show-- very cool! If you are ever in the NY area, you should check out pizza tours. You can go to several famed pizza shops and sample the goods!
