@michjenkins - Playing pizzaiolo. Brunch 'za  - egg, speck, tomato & green onion.

I’m not exactly sure what in the blue blazes was going on yesterday, but of the first three entrants for Weekend Eats yesterday on Twitter, two were from Shanghai and one was from Colombia.

Twitter friend @ChefStops sent two entries, one of a brown and roast pork in a bamboo leaf and the other of roast pork hooves used for rice bundles. Within minutes, @TomBetz sent along his photo of trout on a plantain served in the “Coffee Country” of Perilla, Columbia

I love it when we go international.

Punching your passport, however, does not guarantee a Weekend Eats victory.

Which explains why Michelle Jenkins (@michjenkins) won thjis week with her pizzaiolo brunch with egg, speck, tomato and green onion as toppings. (pictured above)

I mean, look at that thing. That gives you a reason to get out of bed. Early.

For her efforts, she of course joins the pantheon of great eats in the Weekend Eats Hall of Fame on Pinterest.

She also gets a pretty nifty book to read and enjoy:
