Pizzeria Lola's Ann Kim shines on 'Diners, Drive-Ins & Dives' [VIDEO]
In case you missed it, Minneapolis's own Pizzeria Lola was featured on an episode of the Food Network's Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives last night. Host Guy Fieri paid a visit to the south Minneapolis pizzeria along with local food celebrity Andrew Zimmern to get a peek at the kitchen and chef Ann Kim's tricks of the trade.
The episode shows Kim crafting Lola's signature marinara sauce, the kimchi recipe she learned from her mother, pizza dough (the product of a 48-hour process), and the restaurant's house-made fennel sausage. Kim is knowledgeable, charming, and fun, and holds her own next to Fieri's sometimes overbearing presence. Local theatergoers may also recognize acclaimed actress of stage and screen Tracey Maloney, who makes an appearance and rhapsodizes about Lola's pizza.
