Setting Bob Plunket straight on those "English muffins."
By Judi Gallagher
But this is the guy who wants to take me to a buffet in St. Pete in a not-so- posh neighborhood for lunch. So when Bob told me the little English muffin sandwiches at the new Bella Gente on South Osprey were wonderful, I had to hesitate. Wait a minute, I’m thinking, if Bella Gente is owned by the same people as Café Bologna (the tiny Italian restaurant that the famed Marcella Hazan first told us all about), why would they be serving English muffins?
The display at Bella Gente.
So Bob, while you may not always have the culinary details down correctly, I gotta say—great call on Bella Gente. I owe you a Mortadella sandwich.
I do gleefully remember Bob trying the olive oil sorbet.
