Taking the Bite and Booze Radio Show on the road to New Orleans meant a visit to my old buddy Chef Bogdan at Dolce Vita Wood Fired Pizza. You may know him better as the fiery Romanian that had a Baton Rouge food truck with a wood fired brick oven inside his trailer. When he was in Baton Rouge, Chef Bogdan played on our curiosity to lure us in and then earned his way into our souls with his charming personality and ridiculously delicious pizza. Unfortunately for us, his trailer got mixed up in two separate accidents, neither of which were his fault, and while he and his team continue the search for the perfect brick and mortar location in Baton Rouge, Dolce Vita is currently open on St. Charles Avenue in New Orleans. We were there recently to record an episode of the Bite and Booze Radio Show presented by Calandro's Supermarket with Blair Loup, Charles Pierce, Jeff Herman, and of course, the always quotable Chef Bogdan:
