    Reuters February 26, 2021 0 Comments U.S. President Joe Biden met with volunteers at a food bank, toured a health center and visited an emergency operations facility on Friday to assess recovery efforts from a severe Texas winter storm while an aide blamed state government for being unprepared. Biden and his wife Jill Biden landed in Houston where he met Republican Governor Greg Abbott and Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner to discuss the recovery from last week’s storm, which caused serious damage to homes and businesses, left millions without power or clean water for days, and killed at least two dozen. At the food bank, Biden saw rows and rows of packaged food, from pasta to applesauce, stacked in a large warehouse and watched conveyors move slowly as volunteers pulled food out of boxes and put them in containers for delivery. Biden, a Democrat, has sought to bring consolation and...

    Two Connecticut legislators think the state has the best pizza and are even proposing legislation making it the official state food. But other states, and plenty of people, say hang on a minute, what about New York, Chicago, and New Jersey. The two legislators, State Rep. Patricia Dillon, who represents New Haven, and State Senator Gary Winfield, who represents New Haven and West Haven, are ready to push for their favorite food, but so far they have only received about 255 votes on a Change.org petition. New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, said: "We all know who's number one!" While New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy told Connecticut's own Gov. Ned Lamont to "stay in his own lane because New Jersey has the best pizza." New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo is putting on the gloves when it comes to who has the best pizza in the country.Andrew Cuomo/TwitterRegular folks and New Haven locals...
    Connecticut should stick to lobster rolls and leave pizza to New Yorkers — or at least that's what out-of-state critics are saying after Constitution State lawmakers made a saucy claim about proposing pizza as its official state food. When it comes to which state makes the best pizza, New York City-based restaurant consultant Jason Kaplan, owner of JK Consulting, tells Fox News that "it’s definitely not Connecticut," in response to New Haven-based Rep. Patricia Dillon and Sen. Gary Winfield’s bill to make it the pie state. PATRICK STEWART SAYS HE ATE THE 'BEST' PIZZA OF HIS LIFE IN CONNECTICUT "New York is the pizza capital," Kaplan claimed, citing Lombardi’s coal-fired, thin-crust, Neapolitan pizza said to be America’s first pizzeria. He’s not alone. Rep. Patricia Dillon and Sen. Gary Winfield, both from New Haven, introduced a bill to make the food’s status in the state official. (iStock).  "The only...

    Lawmakers want to make pizza Connecticut’s official state food — cheesing off slice lovers in New York and New Jersey, who say the state needs to “sit down.” Rep. Patricia Dillon and Sen. Gary Winfield, both Democrats from New Haven, have proposed a bill to recognize Connecticut as a hotspot for tasty pizza joints, Dillon told The Post. “Pizza is great in Connecticut —  it’s super! — and we don’t really have chains. It’s more family-owned restaurants, and it’s a community thing. You don’t eat pizza alone,” she said, adding that she’s a fan of Sally’s Apizza in New Haven. “I ate my first slice ever in Times Square. I don’t pretend to be an expert on New York or New Jersey pizza — but there’s no question in my mind that Connecticut’s pizza is better. It has more flavor,” she insisted. After news of the bill emerged, New Yorkers took to...
    Apparently, Connecticut really likes its pizza. Two lawmakers from the state are proposing to make pizza the official state food of Connecticut. While many people may assume that New York is the state most famous for its pizza in that area of the country, Connecticut’s residents are arguing that their pizza is also pretty great. Rep. Patricia Dillon and Sen. Gary Winfield, both from New Haven, introduced a bill to make the food’s status in the state official, the Hartford Courant reports. Dillon explained to the news outlet, “For one thing, our pizza is great. For another, when you go to some states, you can get pizza in chain restaurants, but the pizza in Connecticut tends to be family-founding, family-owned, they have their own identity, their own following and they’re small businesses that really have a big footprint in their communities.” She continued to describe the experiences he had eating at a pizza place...
