Now, I know that this blog has typically been about things that come out of my kitchen (and Randi's of course, but it is the same kitchen...), but this past weekend I came across the best pizza I have ever had in my entire life. And that is no understatement! So, I figured it would be doing all of you an injustice if I didn't mention it.
Andrew and I went to Burlington, VT this past weekend for a little vacation (and birthday treat for him). Despite the fact that the weather was not exactly behaving (read rain, ice, snow and anything else that constitutes "wintery mix"), we had a great time and got to explore the area a little bit - on a side note, my Rav-4 kicks major ass and didn't slip one bit.
We stayed at the Hidden Garden's B&B (which was very cute and comfy and had three labs to play with) and ventured out into Burlington for some Magic Hat beer and Lake Champlain chocolate tasting as well as a little shopping and dinner.
The inn-keeper's landscaper recommended the American Flatbread Company - which is a wood-fired pizza restaurant and brewery. All of their ingredients are as fresh and local as you could want and the results are delicious. The crowd was pretty boisterous (but not overly obnoxious) and beer was delish. For dinner, we got the Sun Dried Tomato - Mushroom pie and YUMMMMMMMM....the crust was crispy but chewy, with a nice thin bottom and the most amazing cheesy herby taste ever! If you are ever in Burlington, VT (which you should be, b/c it is a cool town) check this place out!
PS - they also have locations in Middlebury, VT, Waitsfield, VT and Ashburn, VA.
