-- Double Dave's Leon Springs
adopts the philosophy that local, fresh ingredients are crucial when perfecting the art of pizza-making, which is why the staff promotes a recent article
featured in St. Louis Today. The report spotlights Kate Chadha, a chef who enjoys making summer desserts out of fresh ingredients.
"I remember my grandmother's tortes were so hard they would shatter," she said. "She'd make them on a dry day, in her summer kitchen, and leave them in the oven all day once they'd baked. 'Don't even peek; never open the oven door,' she would say. Next to corn, bought just after it's picked, grilled and slathered in butter, and beer brats, there's nothing better in a Wisconsin summer than Schaum Tortes."
Chadha attributes her love for fresh foods to her upbringing in the farm country; an approach to cooking that has served her well in the vibrant food culture of farmers markets in St. Louis. The staff at Double Dave's Leon Springs also believes fresh, local ingredients deeply enrich a meal, no matter the cuisine. "The restaurant's mission is to provide nutritious, yet delicious meals for guests," said a staff person.
"Double Dave's tomato sauce and dough are two sought-after items that have received praise at the pizzeria. The honey whole wheat dough used for the pizza's crust is rich with healthy benefits and the chefs pick the best tomato sauce for its pizza. The sauce is provided by Escalon, a manufacturer in California that creates the best tomato products. Escalon Their tomatoes are packed directly after they are picked from the vine to preserve their freshness. All tomatoes are, then carefully inspected by hand and steam-peeled, avoiding the use of chemicals. To further preserve the natural aspects of the tomatoes, no additives are included."
The report mentions that Chadha plans her meals ahead of time and buys local foods at the peak of quality, in small quantities, to maximize the health benefits and minimize food waste. "We rarely use convenience items because we want the health benefits of foods cooked without additives, hormones and preservatives. Since we buy just enough foods to cook the meals we've planned, we don't have many leftovers. Chadha and the team at Double Dave's Leon Springs believe that fresh, local ingredients make the dish richer in flavor and nutrients.
"It's what sets us apart as a pizza place," said a staff person at Double Dave's. "People aren't always expecting healthy, delectable and authentic pizzas, but that's exactly what they get. It's a very pleasant surprise and refreshing approach to Italian cuisine." The staff at Double Dave's Leon Springs admires Chadha's determination to promote local, fresh ingredients in everything she makes, encouraging others to do the same.
