It’s On! EMW Pizza Week 2021

Bbq Sauce. Chocolate Ganache. Beer Cheese. Chicken Tenders. Sliced Pickles. Thin-Sliced Radishes. Corn Kernels. Alfredo Sauce. What do these foods have in common, you ask?

We’ll give you a hint. They go on baked, flaky crust. The finished products are “feed-your-whole-family,” friendly. Some (interesting) characters prefer the finished product cold. They are being used to support local businesses by satisfying residents all week beginning Monday, January 25, 2021.

The answer, of course, is Pizza!

EMW Pizza Week, running next Monday, January 25th-Friday the 30th, is the winter successor of the mouth-watering, smashing success of Fall 2020 Burger Week in Morden-Winkler. Pizza Week will showcase local restaurants that have put their chefs to the test, coming up with their version of the most intriguing, best-tasting slices of ‘za to rally the community in support of food, small business, and creativity.

Is this about pizza? Certainly! But it is also about supporting small and local businesses that have been serving us well for decades. We are thankful for their employees, their food, and the gumption that got them through the last several months.

A Long Winter

There is no doubt that this has been a year of difference. Many families are missing their loved ones. Businesses are missing their guests. Neighbors are missing the casual chat on the sidewalk. We are all missing more toothy smiles.

We are thankful to have a community that, despite it all, continues to rally around comradery, food, and each other, even if from afar.

So, let’s dig in, lay down our “pineapple on pizza?!” argument, and rally around the taste test that is EMW Pizza Week 2021!

Get eating, all!
