where to buy Italian Double 00 flour?

You cant make pasta with anything but 00 or doppio zero. After you roll out your noodle or ravioli you dust it with semolina so it wont stick. I have also taken to freezing my ravioli to stabilize the glutons, thus not breaking up in the water during boiling.

Italian pastry

Terizzi on 30 th ave and 30 th st in astoria is great for classic italian pastry. Cannoli cream is real ricotta not all powdered sugar.

buffalo wings in Woodside/Sunnyside

if you live in woodside i would suggest expanding your horizons. sriphaphai thai rest off rosevelt ave 65th st is great also a hop away from the best indian in jackson hieghts and sunnyside offers so many things it baffles the mind..korean, tibetan, spanish, even a taco truck or two...if none of this gets you go for the burgers at donovans.you wont be disappointed

Best Prociutto di Parma and San Danielle: NEED A BRAND! and where to get it!

the best prosc in the market is the black label. availible at citarellas or murrays. citarella has better prices and more locations. plus most everything you'll need food wise.

Need some help from Babbo veterans

as a former babbo diner and heaving worked in that diningroom for over 2 years i would recommend for the first time to not get the tasting menu but go ala carte. the signature dishes or stronger menu items all lie on the ala carte menus. particularly the beef cheek ravioli and the goose liver ravioli..ask the server what the best items are..order 2 apps followed by 2 pastas then 2 mains...you wont be disappointed

Annisa for special outing?

annisa is a great choice for it treats you well. this small house enjoys serving people and anita lo is a true searcher of great flavor, you can find bigger or more flamboyant places but none more honest in its product.

Top 5 Burgers

somebody said no to pj clarkes they clearly didnt order a bernaise burger cause all that sauce doesnt make a dry burger...one spot over looked by all is donovans pub in woodside queens. it was rated best burger in ny by time out and others. plus its near the best thai place sriphaphai, so you can make it a double header.
