Redemption for People Who Eat Pizza With a Fork
Tuesday, February 04, 2014
Mayor Bill De Blasio continues to take heat for his knife-and-fork approach to eating pizza. On Monday night he was on Comedy Central's "The Daily Show" to face one of his most vocal critics, Jon Stewart.
But Dan Pashman from The Sporkful food podcast explains that the mayor might be right after all. New York pizza legend Patsy Grimaldi and his wife Carol say they favor the exact same strategy the mayor defended during the original incident at a pizzeria on Staten Island. "I start off with a fork and knife and once it's easily handled I shovel it in my mouth," Grimaldi said.
