Pizza, Pollan and Pollinating the Planet

I’m hoping this isn’t me come a week from now, as I build deeps (compartments) for my honey bees. I’m so excited that the little Italian sweethearts will be arriving just as the family garden is getting started. My hubby and I plan to build the deeps this weekend.

Our plans are on the heels of the Georgia Organics conference, where writer Michael Pollan wowed a crowd of about 1,100 Saturday night as the keynote speaker — and honey bee colony collapse disorder was among many of the topics he hit on. Read more about Pollan’s speech and the conference in my Hotplate column online this Wednesday.

We’ll probably also check out Jeff Verasano’s new pizza palace, Verasano’s Pizzeria, on Peachtree Street, since it’s opening tomorrow and I’ve been waiting to check it out. The dude is going to have to hit home runs to beat Fritti’s new pizzaiola, Enrico Liberato — you can check out my re-review of Fritti online at accessAtlanta tomorrow.

varasano is getting all this press, he is not going to be able to handle the crowd. especially since this is his first place.

its going to get ugly. all the blogs love him now, but how fast will they turn on him? he is getting more hype that FLIP. can you make a pizza as fast as you make a burger? his oven better be HUGE.

It is opening tomorrow huh? Lot of hype around this one, hope it comes through. About to fly to NY for a couple of days, and have some good pie, hopefully this will deliver.
