A new world record for pizza was recently established by none other than our own John Arena co-founder and co-owner of Metro Pizza, alongside fellow industry leaders Tony Gemignani owner of Pizza Rock and Giulio Adriani chef/owner of Forcella in NYC. Of course, it takes an entire team to pull something like this off, and they did so earlier this year in Northern California. Interesting, the Guinness World Record was not for the pizza size, nor its weight or number of tomatoes used, but for its length, an overall 6,333 feet 3.6 inches about 1.3 miles, making it the longest pizza ever recorded! Wonder what the Italians have to say about this???

Here was one of those rare occasions that all three Las Vegas Food & Beverage Pros were able to get together at the pre-opening of Robert Irvine’s first restaurant in Las Vegas at the Tropicana Resort. The media and suppliers were there in full force to wish him well and enjoy an evening of great food & beverage. Pictured here are Creative Director Juanita Aiello, Editorial Director Bob Barnes and Head Dishwasher Mike Fryer.

Gordon Ramsay Steak at Paris Las Vegas celebrated its five year anniversary and we were happy to join the festivities with Executive Chef Christophe Doumergue. Chef pulled out all the stops with a five-course anniversary menu that included oyster & Scotch egg, baby heirloom tomato salad with burrata cheese, seared scallops with Kaluga caviar crust, roasted beef Wellington Rossini with seared foie gras and vanilla mascarpone cheesecake. With cuisine this superb, we’ve no doubt they will continue for another five years and well beyond.
