When did pizza first make its way across the pond to the U.S.? Who of us had a part in Mr. Holland’s Opus? How do pizza and jazz mesh together in the Portland music/food scene?

These are questions that will most certainly have answers this week on Sound Tasting Episode 3.

Join host Marti Mendenhall in the kitchen with co-owners of The 1905, Aaron Barnes and Holly Resnick, as they whip up a Portland take on a classic: pizza(pictured below). They use the freshest ingredients, and even the vegetables come from the local farmer’s markets in the area. Homemade sauce is also made daily along with the pizza pie crust.

Join us to find out Aaron and Holly’s favorite pizza combinations, as well as stories connecting the Portland jazz scene to the world of pizza.

The 1905 Biography

The idea behind The 1905 is to provide a culturally inclusive venue so the community can connect through experience, atmosphere, food, and drink. This is not only significant because of our food fare, but because it’s symbolic of the melding of culture — what was once an Italian import is now a quintessential part of the American experience. As such, The 1905 celebrates the Portland community as a whole and wants to maintain a safe and inclusive environment for all.

Owner and pizza visionary Aaron Barnes pays homage to the roots of Italian pizza through his mastery of classic technique, while infusing modern technique and creativity into the recipes. Our pizza is created with fresh ingredients, and even the vegetables come from the local farmer’s markets in the area. Homemade sauce is made daily along with the pizza pie crust. Similarly, our bar staff uses the mastery of classic cocktails to inspire our signature program. The focus of both elements is geared toward providing a unique and high quality experience while maintaining the accessibility and modesty necessary to continually expand on their work; engaging with the clientele as a means of inspiration. The 1905 fully embraces our Portland roots.

Sound Tasting with Host Marti Mendenhall, features interviews with chefs, musicians and foodies about music, food, behind-the scenes info and a how-to recipe on every show.
