From Flour To Table: Pizza and Fascinating Facts You Might Not Know!

Fresh out of the oven, a sumptuous delight is waiting for you to relish. Your senses are overwhelmed with the distinct aroma emitted from the bread mingling with the irresistible scent from the cheese and its toppings. You simply cannot wait to chow down on this pizza! Yes, there is nothing better than sinking your teeth into the heavenly pie topped with generous heaps of cheese and sauce!

Famous around the globe, pizza has won the heart of even the most discerning diners! If you are one of them, it’s time to indulge in our “bite-sized” facts and figure out how pizza travels the world and ends up on your table! 

 

1/ The Origin of Pizza

As pizza becomes ubiquitous, there are countless stories of how it was invented and in fact, most of them are half-truths, fables or hard-nosed opinions. Pizza is originated from Italy? It might stun you a little but Italy cannot really take the credit for inventing pizza! According to archeological evidence, pizza could be originated from the Middle East. It is believed that the pizza nowadays is actually a part of the lineage of Greek yeasted flatbreads (which is called “pitta” in Greek)! 

2/ What Makes Italian Pizza Become Popular All Around The World?

It is no doubt that Italy has successfully made pizza a phenomenal dish that is loved by foodies internationally. But have you ever wondered how?  Pizza lovers would be familiar with the story of how Queen Margherita got obsessed with pizza and made it the national dish! However, pizza scholar Zachary Nowak believes that it is hardly the truth! The fact is, during World War II, many allied soldiers stationed in Italy fell in love with this dish and brought with them the recipes when they got back home. Also, numerous Italian immigrants have traveled the world with this delectable delicacy. In the sixties, it was a big hit in America and well-known since then! 

 

3/ What Are The Differences Between Italian Pizza and American Pizza?

You might fall in love with both yet what distinguishes them from each other? Well, the key difference is actually in the sauce itself! While American prefers to use slow-cooked tomato sauce, Italian loves to use puréed fresh tomato instead! The crust and shape are also important characteristics to differentiate the two versions. To be called ‘authentic Italian’, the pizza must be round and no more than 13 and three-quarter inches in diameter with a crust of three-quarters of an inch thick or less. The dough must be kneaded by hand and prepared from traditional types of flour, yeast, salt and tomatoes.

If you want to tempt your palate with a dish of Northern Italian influence, this classic Risotto Alla Zucca could be what you are looking for. The delectable dish captured our attention right at the first sight as its vibrant color and elegant presentation was absolutely eye-catching. The carnaroli (medium-grained rice) was meticulously cooked with prawn stock and pumpkin to form a flavorful texture while the prawns were prepared freshly to retain the best its taste. Packed with flavors and freshness, the dish is worth trying!

We were completely melted when we first have a bite into this Braised Beef Cheeks which is made of premium Wagyu beef coated in red wine and served with classic Polenta Taragna. The beef cheeks had a melt-in-the-mouth texture that hardly any of us can resist the temptation. Marinated overnight, the Wagyu beef was cooked over the course of 5 hours until it was fork-tender. We were also impressed with the classic Polenta Taragna as it was made from scratch using house-made chicken stock and shaved Parmesan cheese. Such a luscious delight!

Finally, we would recommend to you this delicious Whole Sea Bass which is also the favorite dish of the chef here. The dish was irresistible as it emanated such an aroma that whetted our appetite. The fresh sea bass was prepared carefully before being stuffed with rosemary, garlic and grilled to perfection. Topped with green sauce and lemon slices, the dish was a wonderful delight, especially for a rainy day.

#MerdekaDay: A (Makan) Journey To Iconic and Historical Places This Merdeka Day 2018

1/ Step back in time to admire the glory days in the past at Old Malaya

Click here to view image

Old Malaya

If you want to be drifted back to the colonial time while enjoying lip-smacking delights, you cannot simply ignore Old Malaya. Located at Jalan Raja Chulan, the 99-year-old colonial building has been transformed from a prominent residential area to a dilapidated sanctuary and finally the home of numerous heritage-modelled restaurants that are much loved by Malaysians and tourists. Amongst towers of offices and gigantic malls, this old landmark stands out as a unique, worth-visiting aesthetic legacy to step back in time and value our past. Come to Old Malaya if you love to appreciate the glory days of Kuala Lumpur in the past through the remaining ornate walls that harken back to the old days.

Click here to view image

The journey to Old Malaya wouldn’t be complete without sitting at a restaurant here to revel in the magnificent view of the iconic KL Tower or the serene ambiance of this culinary enclave. If you have a knack for steak, there is no reason why you should not opt for one of the best steakhouse in town – PAMPAS Steakhouse at Old Malaya. If you are into Malaysian-accented culinary with a modern twist, walk in Manja and it won’t let you down. Pier 12 Seafood Tavern will bring you to the sea with its freshest seafood while Luce Osteria Comtemporanea is where you can find yourself an authentic Italian wood-fired pizza and Junior Chellapa will gratify your Indian food craving by showering you with authentic Indian dishes.

Click here to view KL Tower

KL Tower

A few minutes further from Old Malaya and you will set your foot on the highest telecommunications tower in Southest Asia – KL Tower. As the highest and most spectacular tower of Kuala Lumpur currently, the gleaming KL Tower has a spindle-like apex that allows visitors to admire the city centre. Boasting a theatre, an amphitheatre and beautiful cascading pools, this tower is a definite must-see sightseeing attraction. A visit to KL Tower would not be fulfilled without treating yourself to modern authentic Malaysian and international cuisine while rejoicing in the most spectacular view of the city centre at Atmosphere 360 Revolving Restaurant KL Tower.

 

2/ Visit Historical Trio at Once – Kuala Lumpur Railway Station, Merdeka Square, National Museum of Malaysia

The more the better, you ask? Buckle up and visit these famous landmarks – Kuala Lumpur Railway Station, Merdeka Square and National Museum of Malaysia.

Click here to view image

Kuala Lumpur Railway Station

Designed by one of the most prolific British colonial architects – Arthur Benison Hubback, the old Kuala Lumpur Railway Station has marked its 118 years old this year and one who came here would not stop admiring the gorgeous facade of the gazetted heritage building, the dome-capped pavilions along the roof line and the Renaissance-like verandas with arched colonnade.

Merdeka Square

It would be a miss if you don’t visit Merdeka Square where the Malayan flag was raised for the very first time and take joy in the annual Merdeka Parade here. Keep in mind that when you are admiring the lofty flagpole that holds the flag of Malaysia, you are actually seeing one of the top highest flagpoles in the world! Merdeka Square is not only a historical place itself but is also ringed by the majestic charm of heritage buildings such as the prominent Sultan Abdul Samad Building and St. Mary’s Anglican Cathedral. Take a few steps further and you can pay the renowned Chinatown a visit.

National Museum of Malaysia

Finally, don’t forget to spend your time in the National Museum (Muzium Negara) which is the most principal museum of Malaysia. Set up in 1963, the museum is a repository of Malaysia’s rich cultural heritage. With its magnificent exhibitions and galleries, the museum imparts knowledge through the country’s historical past. Remember to admire the 3 note-worthy galleries here which are the History Gallery that traces back to the original days, the Cultural Gallery with a collection of various aspects of Malaysian culture and the Metalwork and Musical Instruments Gallery that showcases ceremonial ornaments and instruments.

Feeling peckish after wandering for so long? Don’t worry as there are a plethora of delectable food around for you to pamper yourself.
