Oklahoma City is Home to the First Matthew Kenney Academy

· 1 Comment

We’ve got a number of unique things in Oklahoma City, and we’ve recently added one more: the first licensed Raw and Living Foods educational center in the world!  The Matthew Kenney Academy, which was formerly called 105degrees, provides future chefs with the skills they need to produce amazing meals featuring only raw and living foods.  The academy is the brainchild of chef Matthew Kenney and OKC resident Dara Prentice. It’s connected to the Matthew Kenney restaurant.

The academy’s curriculum focuses on using organic, whole, and unprocessed foods to create an amazing meal that is healthy and flavorful.  The academy was previously named 105 degrees because that’s the temperature food must be keep under in order for it to keep its natural enzymes.

Small Italian Restaurant Setting Provides Homemade Ingredients to Oklahoma City Guests

· No Comments

If you are like me, then you enjoy finding small, out of the way restaurants because you never know what you are going to find.  The other day I joined my brother and his family for dinner at The Caffé Pranzo.  When we first stepped into the restaurant I was not sure of what we were going to find; however, we were instantly greeted with a warm welcome and seated at a nearby table.  The atmosphere is intimate and the walls are decorated with a wide variety of local art that is readily available for sale if you find a piece that you like.  Also, each table has a different interesting set of salt and pepper shakers, and there is a small collection of other shakers on display, creating a unique look and feel.

I love trying new places to eat, especially new independent restaurants that aren’t part of a huge chain.  Sometimes, these places are a disappointment, but sometimes, they’re incredible.  The new Sweet Tea Restaurant on NW 23rd Street near Classen is one of these incredible places.

The Wedge Pizzeria

· 1 Comment

I recently had a chance to eat lunch and then dinner (well, not in the same day!) at the Wedge Pizzeria.  Located at 4709 North Western Avenue, the Wedge is an unique place to have a pizza pie.

 

One of the great things about the Wedge is their variety of toppings.  They have pizzas that include walnuts, figs, goat cheese, prosciutto, kalamata olives, and much more in addition to standard toppings like pepperoni, sausage, mushrooms, and olives.  All of their pizzas are baked in a brick oven on their signature crust.  They also have some very interesting appetizers like proscuitto wrapped pears, meatballs, and more.  If you’re looking for a nice beverage to compliment your pizza, the Wedge serves a variety of beer and has a nice wine list.
