An Italian Stocking

An Italian Stocking

I love a variation on a theme. Isn’t that what most cuisines are? Combining the region’s ingredients in different ways? In its simplest and most deconstructed form, Italian food consists of bread or pasta, sauce and cheese. But oh what these elements can accomplish! And of course, there is room for evolution. Like 3 Brothers.

3 Brothers’ vegan calzone is everything it should be… huge, stuffed to the brim with cashew tofu-ricotta, Daiya and, in this case, veggie meatball, and cooked to an oozing perfection. After the sky-rocketing price of a small pizza turned me way off, this calzone, is my new favorite item on their menu.

Don’t pretend you’re going to eat half of it and save the rest for later. That is not happening. Eat it all and without apology.
