the pizza chef's hat

The hat Pizzaiolo

inseparable companion of all pizza makers, hat is the symbol of pride even if it is mistakenly seen by some as a constraint. What kind of hat you wear at work? The history of the kitchen is very old hat, dating back to 1829.

the pizza chef's hat

As you know (I hope), the skill of a chef does not measure the height of the kitchen wearing hat, High or low that it is often a simple matter of working comfort. It happened a few times to work in restaurants with a low hood, so it was impossible to work with a top hat. In pizzeria it is not recommended to use a high hat because of the pizza maker distinctive work, often having to bend down to pick up the wood to feed the oven, would fail to balance the tall hat, then, over the years were always more pizza makers who have worn the bag or practice bandana. Personally I use the paper bag, super hygienic disposable, Always stretch to perfection and also absorbs sweat. As an alternative to paper is very widely used non-woven fabric.

The thing however that I consider very important is that whatever form you have chosen, and of any material whether made, do not forget that the kitchen is the color WHITE. In the kitchen, apart from the pants that can be blacks or pinstripes, the jacket and hat must be white. I fully understand that there is dirty easily, but….patience, when soiled, you changed.

Touch, retina, cap, bandana, paper bag, of cotton or non-woven fabric, but it must be white.

HACCP certificate

HACCP certificate. Are many professions today have to do with food. Indeed This area contains a series of activities that follow the entire production, from cultivation to the administration. We speak therefore of farmers, workers in the food industry, confectioners, bartenders, cooks. But not only, Also unexpected categories, as pharmacists and drivers.

HACCP certificate

All these workers, in one way or another come into contact with food and must therefore know the basic rules of hygiene and food safety. In this case the European regulations and therefore also the Italian, require knowledge of sistema HACCP. Born to ensure food safety for astronauts NASA has since been adopted in many countries, thanks to its proven effectiveness.
To know and apply the rules of HACCP must study them, that is why the law requires that anyone working in the food industry to take a course and obtain the HACCP certificate which proves passing the final test.

HACCP certificate

The HACCP certificate is proof that we have the necessary knowledge about the main rules of hygiene and safety, we know the rules and the application of HACCP, that we have the basics of microbiology and food preservation, and we know how to sanitize a facility and equipment. In short, the certificate serves to prove that we can protect the health of those who come into contact with food that we worked or handled.

Of course this knowledge have different degrees, the manager of the food industry must:
identify all critical points (CCP) the various activities and identify, apply and update safety procedures (based on HACCP principles). Its task is thus of responsibility, that requires a deep understanding of the issues. Instead, for example, the chap who does not manipulate foods must have general knowledge, because his contact with food is never direct, so much so that before the law did not provide even the possession of health card for this category.

Currently the law requires the possession of the mandatory HACCP, without which it is allowed to work in the food industry, so that in all cases it is required as a prerequisite when hiring.

pizza esplanade

The Pizza Esplanade Description and Recipes

Pizza Esplanade. Today I will try to clarify one of the more complex concepts of pizzeria. Around the word "plateau" in the greatest confusion reigns pizzeria!! Very often the case that customers order an esplanade for 2 or for 3 people without really knowing or know the meaning of this term.

The pizza esplanade was born many years ago as a unique bakery product, it is a thin focaccia white, without any seasoning, it is crispy and crumbly.

pizza esplanade
As should be the pizza esplanade

With the passage of time, each region has made its own recipe, very often inappropriately using the term esplanade, and unfortunately, always at the expense of crunchiness and crispness of the product.

Pizza Esplanade As It Should Be

The esplanade should be a simple focaccia thin and crisp without any seasoning or stuffing. Once baked, It can be stuffed at will, with mortadella, arugula, cherry tomatoes, tuna, ham and many other ingredients that do not release water, the esplanade, It is inumidita, lose its crunchiness.

Pizza Esplanade How Should Not Be

Stuffed pizza

Too often over the counter by pizzerias it reads the indication of pizza esplanade for a product of "open space" has nothing, you know very well that if you add tomato or mozzarella on a thin pizza, the result will not be sure of a product crispy and crumbly, as the tomato mozzarella, It contains a lot of water. It would be appropriate to call this product "pizza dish great for 3 the 4 People "


I am a simple pizza, I'm not a judge, then I would never dare to criticize products that over time have earned a place in the regional culinary traditions, products such as the esplanade of Romagna, the esplanade Roman, the esplanade of Calabria or the esplanade Sardinian, exceptional products, all boast of the title esplanade, but all different.

Pizzas stuffed

It is evident that with the passage of time the term esplanade, It is no longer used to distinguish the characteristics of a product, but it is to indicate a type of thin pizza, that can be stuffed in many different ways. Good to know. All this suggests to me a good idea for my next creative recipe .... How about a taste of my calzone "esplanade"??
