Big Nods for Two Local Chefs

Local Chefs Nominated for Prestigious Awards

On a national food stage, Omaha gets little credit for our vast culinary scene and impact on the food world.

Like My Grandma Makes It - Zurlo’s Bistro Italiano

Sgt. Peffer’s Cafe Italiano an Omaha Staple

Over the years, pizza shops have pushed the limits of what a pizza can hold; from savory to sweet, the imagination for pizza toppings is seemingly endless.  There are those of us who are traditionalists and require few items on a pizza to make us happy.  A good crust, basic sauce and properly seasoned ingredients are all you need sometimes; and just because it has loads of cheese on top, does not necessarily make it a better pizza.

Sgt. Peffer’s Café Italiano in particular, has stood the test of time, and continues to convert loyal pizza enthusiasts to fans, year after year. Sgt Peffer’s has a long, rich history in the community and so I decided I wanted to know more about the early...
