Give Back Tuesday: Microfinancing Partners in Africa

Microfinancing in AfricaLast month our customers raised more than $2,000 for local, nonprofit Friends of Wings. Talk about awesome customers with big hearts!! Let’s keep the good vibes going!

 

This month we partner with Microfinancing Partners in Africa (MPA). This charity provides grants to help strengthen and expand microfinancing programs in Africa. The organization works to assist those living in extreme poverty to help themselves, their families, and community by providing them with access to services and education. Simply put: MPA helps set the stage to help individuals rediscover their innate dignity.

 

Please join us Tuesday, September 23 to help benefit this deserving organization. One-hundred percent of our profits from the entire day, 11 a.m. to 11 p.m., including carry-outs, will be donated. To learn more about MPA, please visit: http://www.microfinancingafrica.org/

Giving Back Tuesdays Was Super Successful!

Holy fundraising, Batman! Our first ever Giving Back Tuesdays was a HUGE success. Thanks to our awesome customers, we were able to donate $2,900 to Operation Food Search. As you know, Operation Food Search is the area’s largest distributor of free food to those in need. So grateful we could help them out! Our next Giving Back Tuesday will be August 26th, and as before, will be all day and all items, including lunch, dinner, and carry out.

 

Up next - Friends of Wings! They are a fantastic non-profit that provides clinical, emotional, spiritual, social, and practical support and services to children, newborn through 21 years, who have life-threatening or life-limiting illnesses or conditions, regardless of their ability to pay.

And the Award Goes To…

Burrata platesOur new burrata mozzarella plates are making a splash! On Wednesday, June 20 we were presented (via limousine no less) with the 2014 St. Louis Magazine A-List Award for New Menu Category. Each year these awards are given to the best of the best in the St. Louis region, and we couldn’t be more excited to have received one!

 

The star of our new menu category is, you guessed it, burrata mozzarella. Burrata is an Italian cheese with a solid outer shell and a creamy center. Each of these dishes features pure-white of burrata, as well other fresh ingredients like figs and prosciutto.

 

The creamy richness of burrata sets it apart from other cheeses. It has a sweet, milky flavor perfect for eating alone or paired with other foods. Come by and try one of our new burrata mozzarella plates or any of our other dishes made fresh in-house daily!

Katie’s Cause

The fourth Tuesday of every month Katie’s Pizza & Pasta Osteria will donate 100% of its proceeds to a local charity. We want to spread the love, so a different charity will receive the donation each month. This applies to everything – food, drinks, dine-in, or carry out for lunch and dinner!

 

Up this month is Operation Food Search! This organization provides food to more than 150,000 in the bi-state area of which one-third are children. Bring your family and friends to Katie’s on Tuesday, July 22 for delicious food, refreshing drinks, and a wonderful cause!

 

Ingredient of the Month: Morels

The hunt is on for morels! The mushroom with a honeycomb-like cap is prized by chefs worldwide. They are delicious and practically a delicacy. While the mushroom itself is quite elusive and mysterious, its name is not. It derives from the Latin word maurus, meaning “brown.”

For a limited time, we will be featuring morel specials. Try our morel pizza with fennel sausage and taleggio cheese for a classic with a twist. Or if you are looking for a more unique flavor, taste our morel pasta with beet tagliatelle and asparagus. Come in and enjoy these dishes while they last!
