Pocapaglia, Poca Poca, or Pocapulco is a small town in between Bra and Pollenzo. Although secluded from the busy Città di Bra, many students from the University of Gastronomic Sciences live there for foraging opportunities, more green than grey, and maybe for its (open to the public) wood fire oven. If there is something you must know, I am someone committed to have her own wood fire oven, even if that means settling on a city to live in 😂.
In order to take advantage of the last warm days, we organized a rustic pizza party night. With homemade pizza dough, tomato sauce, and a bunch of toppings the goal was to come up with unique and seasonal combinations. Some options consisted on roasted pumpkin paste, tahine, vegetables (both fresh and roasted), mozzarella, ricotta, gorgonzola, and all types of prosciutto. As the night crawled upon us, combinations got crazier, but that's what we love about being Gastronomes.
Additionally, the Cabbage Queens Sari and Rianne wanted to conduct a cabbage-riment inspired after attending Identità Golose. The goal was to roast a whole cabbage in tin foil for at least 4 yours in this wood fire oven, then letting it ferment in the fridge for at least a couple of weeks. After the appropriate time had pass, we gathered around to feast on cabbage. If you want to see what we created, get the full story here.
