Where I Go Out

Behind the Scenes

Fennel-dusted wings with
"Fennel-dusted wings with Gorgonzola dip: @la_boite and I have been messing around with spice blends. The “finocchio” we made for @martinapizzeria is a an umami-packed blend of different ground anise seeds, dehydrated mushroom and garlic bits (also pulverized) and a touch of hot chili. Rub it on wings, roast them in pizza oven, toss in sizzling oil and hit them with more finocchio upon exit from the flash fry. These are for our new #HappyHour (weekdays 4-6:30pm) but I’m going to run them all weekend long as a sneak preview. $5!"
