    Hi Melissa,

    I was reading your blog today and saw that you’ve linked to our web site, Savory New York, on your list of links. Many thanks!

    We hope you enjoy using the site and welcome any feedback you have. We’ll be launching Savory San Francisco in a couple of weeks. Let me know if you’d like me to send you a preview link next week.

    Cheers,
    Chris

    Hey – Just read your article on pies in the post – thought you’d like one I came up with:

    White Pizza with Brie & Asparagus
    Par boil/steam some young asparagus – about 12 spears. Then hit your rolled out dough with plenty of good olive, gray salt & cracked black pepper. Fan out the aspargus around the center and add sliced brie strategicly. One of those standard brie wedges should be enough. You can top with parsley after cooking if you’ve got it.

    Simple but delicious and brie on pizza is a new concept – well atleast in my book.
