Posts Tagged ‘Pasture to Plate’

This is my first time going to the Tasting Plates events. Here’s a little recap of my highlights of the EastVan edition. Kicked off the event with Via Tevere Pizzeria, where they served two kinds of Neapolitan pizza. The first one was the classic margherita and the second is the capricciosa. The capricciosa had prosciutto cotto, salami, artichoke, mushroom, and nicoise olive, whereas the margherita had San Morzano tomatoes, fior di latte, and basil. I am no expert at authentic Italian pizza, but I really enjoyed the margherita. The balance of topping to crust ratio was good, the tomato sauce had a nice balance of acidity, and the mozzarella (fior de latte) was scrumptious.
