In the wake of the passing of Carol Grimaldi, Dan replays this classic Sporkful interview with a pair of New York pizza legends. 81-year-old Patsy Grimaldi may be the last person making pizza today who trained under someone who trained at Lombardi's--the first pizzeria in American history. Dan and the Grimaldi's discuss slice folding technique, the art and science of using a coal oven, what she taught him about pizza, and several trends Patsy deems "ridiculous."
Dan talks to a Southern Baptist matzoh expert about the science of matzoh making, and to a rabbi about the rules that govern the process. Between the two they cover why matzoh has so many holes, how much charring is the right amount, and whether an open-faced matzoh sandwich is a sandwich. This episode is for all cracker lovers.
