Rhonda from the Mortgage Porter blog recently took a pizza-making class at Culinary Communion on Beacon Avenue, and posted a Flickr set of photos of the class. If you’ve wondered what their classes are like, this gives you a good look at a class in their kitchen, and at some very tasty-looking pizza! My favorite photo, though, was the one of the chalkboard with ideas for different topping combinations: pear, prosciutto, bleu cheese; egg, bacon, spinach, feta; pumpkin, cranberry, sage, and bleu cheese… hey, that sounds like Thanksgiving Pizza!

  1. All the pizza’s were really good and the class was fun. And…I’m proud to say, I made pizza again the night before last and the crust turned out great!

  2. The pizza class sounds fun. I took the charcuterie class and it was great.

    Coincidentally, I just received a message from CC about selling off thier bacon reserves to make room for building inspectors. This bacon rocks! Here is the note:

    Bacon Fundraiser at Culinary Communion!

    Calling all friends of Culinary Communion, bacon lovers and foodies alike, we need your help! We need to move 1,000 pounds (yes, you read it right, 1,000 pounds) of bacon. It’s a long a story . . . but, in order to secure permitting and to start selling at farmer’s markets in 2009, the city needs to do one final inspection of our new space and 1,000 pounds of our house-cured, incredibly delicious bacon is standing in the way!

    So, we need you, your friends, family and co-workers to buy our bacon! Selling for only $10/lb., our famous bacon is made from 100% organically-raised Berkshire heirloom pork and cured on-site at the CC house. It has been gaining considerable acclaim all around the city and you will see why when you taste it! Plus, what better time to have a couple pounds of homemade bacon on-hand. Think: Thanksgiving stuffing, weekend brunch, hostess gift or freeze a bunch to use throughout the year. This is an opportunity not to be missed (and a great way to support a local business during these crazy financial times)!

    Swing by Culinary Communion any time to get your bacon on (even until noon on Thanksgiving Day). Not sure you have time to make the trek to Beacon Hill? Give us a call and we’ll do our best to bring the bacon to you! And, one more thing, consider starting a “Community Bacon Drive” at your office. Forward this to your co-workers, collect their orders and we’ll stop by your office with a special delivery. (Plus, we’ll throw in an extra pound for your help.)

    Thanks in advance for helping us making our goal of selling 1,000 pounds of bacon a reality! Who knows? Maybe we’ll even make the Guinness Book of World Records . . . Most Bacon Sold in Least Amount of Time!

    Our very best to all of you this Thanksgiving. We are thankful for the continued support you’ve given us over the years and the enthusiasm and excitement you’ve shown for our new endeavors. Thank you for being a part of it!
