PIZZA WARS 2015: IT’S TIME TO VOTE FOR YOUR FAVORITE PIZZA

Burger Wars are a distant memory and now it’s time to pick who makes the meanest pie in northern Indiana, starting by whittling it down on the county levels. 

Elkhart, St. Joseph, Kosciusko, LaGrange, LaPorte, Marshall and Porter counties are going head-to-head and it’s time to vote for your favorite pizza in each county. Nominees were chosen last week and multiple voting rounds will name one winner that will advance to the regional competition. 

But only one will reign supreme. You can follow the competition with the tag #PizzaWarsNI. 

GOSHEN CHEESE SHOP EXPECTS TO OPEN IN A FEW WEEKS 

We know her as the voice behind her column on Flavor 574, La Bonne Vie, and the Goshen community knows her as the owner of Rachel’s Bread

Rachel Shenk is a few weeks away from opening The Wedge, a specialty cheese shop, at 212 W. Washington St., in Goshen, according to Flavor 574 reporting.

She plans to bring a taste of Europe to the area by selling a spread of European cheese and said she plans to rotate the offerings.

For more details about The Wedge, see the full story on Flavor 574.

THREE SPINS ON A CLASSIC COOKIE RECIPE 

In case you missed all of the photos from last week of Elkhart Truth and Flavor 574 staffers noshing on cookies, we had a great celebration for National Chocolate Chip Day, which was Friday, May 15. 

Fourteen people baked a few dozen cookies for a bake-off in the offices and 26 eager people ranked their favorites. Flavor 574 has a few recipes from the top picks — one of which even includes bacon. 

 

Proving that all shapes, sizes and colors are beautiful.

Another way to have a belated celebration is to try a few different spins on the classic cookie. We asked Flavor 574 readers what their favorite ways to eat chocolate chip cookies were and shared a few unique recipes
