I love to cook, write, and eat. And I really love to share this information with the world. I started when I realized the amount of misinformation out there in regard to cooking and food. So I decided to start gathering up everything I could, from recipes to cooking tips to restaurant reviews, to create a resource that people would actually use and enjoy. I think it's important to be passionate about food and enjoy cooking it and eating it. This is my way of sharing all that knowledge with you.

BETHANY, Okla. – The lengthy lunch rush at Papa Angelo’s in Bethany stretches out like a long piece of stringy mozzarella. “My son works with me,” said owner Joe DiGiantomasso. “This is my nephew.” DiGiantomasso grew up in New York and made New York-style pies here for 1 / century. “I may want to try this inexpensive. However, I’m now not going to,” he said. “I ought to purchase cheaper cheese. However, I’m not doing it.”

One of DiGiantomasso’s customers otoday is a combination meals blogger and public family members man named Rob Crissinger, who introduced another pizza fan to sample what he thinks is the great New York-style pepperoni around here.


“It’s the world’s ideal meal,” he stated.

Crissinger comes from a pizza-making family, and it is nevertheless a staple. “Pepperoni is my satisfied location,” he said. “That’s what makes the nostalgia for me, for the pizza besides.” Earlier this year, he spoke neighborhood meals blogger about taboutI Ate Oklahoma’ took him up on reviewing one hundred unique pepperoni pizzas at 100 exclusive Oklahoma restaurants within a yr.

“So, that’s what I’m doing,” he said. “I love it.”

So, we consume two slices every at Papa Angelo’s, then head to Bricktown, where Gannon Mendez and a circle of relatives have their Sauce Sicilian meals truck parked for the afternoon. “We get our tomatoes from Italy,” he stated.

Mendez grew up making Neapolitan-fashion pizza in a wooden-fired oven.

Again, we’re eating and discussing techniques.

Gannon said, “We have a normal pepperoni. Then, we’ve got a spicy pepperoni where my family and I mix a few more substances and let it all sit for a few days.”

But we weren’t completed yet.

Supper time took us to Edmond to an area referred to as ‘The Heat.’ Proprietors there concentrate on Chicago fashion deep dish pizza. We order pepperoni of directions.

However, Rob said it’s only the start. “Pizza is straightforward at its heart. But, there are limitless possibilities of how it may be put together.” Rob keeps his quest without us going deeper than any deep dish and wider than Angelo’s Empire 20-inch.

He stated, “Really, I’m just in the starting phase.”

These days, humans do not buy anything without analyzing evaluations first. Amazon.Com is the sector’s favorite shopping mall. Visitors search for an object that is closely reviewed and has a generally fine score. There is suspicion of items with no opinions, which means the enterprise is probably new to maximum people.

The object they may be looking at is of questionable excellence. Positive client evaluations weigh in massive time within the patron psyche and the benefit at which evaluations may be published. Every interaction with a consumer is a capacity opportunity to make or smash many future sales. These thoughts commenced with the retail industry, and they’ve unfolded like wildfire to eating places.

So, ought you ask for critiques or now not? Let’s evaluate the pros and cons:


Incentivizing is a top-notch motivator for the entirety of the world. If you need opinions from your clients, offer them something of price. Asking for evaluations isn’t bad as long as you’re not flat-out deciding to buy them. Put something amusing collectively: drop overview submitters’ names into a monthly raffle for a free lunch, pick out a pinnacle reviewer and ship them to a wonderful themed excursion (suppose Olive Garden sending households to Italy), and have your top chef prepare dinner for a certain special client. Many ideas involve a thematic method to incentivize rewards versus simply handing out coins. Get your customers concerned and excited and reap the advantages of a sincerely passionate reviewer!
