Weekend Cooking is open to anyone who has any kind of food-related post to share: Book (novel, nonfiction) reviews, cookbook reviews, movie reviews, recipes, random thoughts, gadgets, fabulous quotations, photographs. If your post is even vaguely foodie, feel free to grab the button and link up over the weekend. It's hosted by Beth Fish Reads.
Back in September, I reviewed Aftertaste by Meredith Mileti (see the review here). I loved the book. It had food and a little bit of romance but oh, the food!!! I knew that I wanted to try out some of the recipes. My husband and I both love to cook so we were excited to take on the recipe for White Pizza with Tallegio, Prosciutto, Apricots, and Arugula Salad.
We went to our local Italian deli to get a couple of the items on the ingredient list (Vace, we love you so much!). We got fresh pizza dough, prosciutto, parmesan romano and dried apricots (the recipe called for fresh or dried but since apricots are not in season, we went with the dried apricots).
Next, we went to our grocery store to search for tallegio. It's a kind of cheese that I had never come across before so I did a little research on other kinds of cheeses we could use if we couldn't find tallegio. Sure enough, no tallegio so we used fontina, which is pretty easy to find.
The pizza is super easy to cook!
