Michael Schwartz celebrated the release of his new pizza cookbook at his restaurant where everyone’s favorite food is the star.
Konny Nakamura and Carlos Penalosa joined the chef-author for a pizza class and dinner as Genuine Pizza: Better Pizza at Home takes over its namesake Aventura Mall pizzeria for the night. They received hands-on instruction with the Chef as they learned how to make and stretch their own individual pizza dough with the pizza matrix as their guide to winning flavor combinations for a perfectly balanced pie.
Future pizza-making parties are in the works, with each ticket at $69 including a signed copy to take home. From start to finish the event is a big pizza party which includes dinner with communal seating, assorted passed snacks with a welcome cocktail, your own pizza, as well as salads, entrées and desserts to share taken from the pages of Chef’s new book.
