HOWIE please get a dictionary

Right spankin across the street from STANFORD U. Where some of the most brilliant minds come together, a pizza joint screws it all up. OK Howie you are the Artisan and your pizza is Artisnal. Dumb ass now if you are gonna use a hot button food word in the title of your joint . GET IT RIGHT. I kept drivin no use spending money to see if "right outta the can" means ARTISAN in Howies world. Sigh. Come on people wake up and hold your purveyors of "todays food" to a standard we all can be proud of. Kind of like Dominos trying to fool you into thinking they get all their cheese from that SMALL farm in the commercial. Read the fine print. Kinda like saying "we use organic when possible" WTF? Off the hook is what that is. March on I'm hungry and Howie is off the list.............xoxoxo T

T, you crack me up!! To be fair, just because they can't get the proper buzz word put up on the sign, does that mean it's not worthy of trying? Are those the rules? ;)

ok - since sooooo many folks have been using this word to describe food, I had to look it up! Here is the Wiki:

An artisan (from Italian: artigiano) is a skilled manual worker who makes items that may be functional or strictly decorative, including furniture, clothing, jewellery, household items, and tools.
The term can also be used as an adjective to refer to the craft of hand making food products, such as bread, beverages and cheese.

So let's give poor Howie a break - I mean, he has to go through life being called "Howie".
