Default 1. Worldwide Pizza Party: report of the Swiss Chapter

Dusty, guys,

as promised I fired up my oven today. We had beautiful weather for it, like the first day of Spring, so we carried the table outside and ate beside the oven .

I told everyone (i.e. my family, my bother, and a friend with her small son - admittedly not much of a turnout, but I'm sure it'll improve over the years as the event becomes better known) what a historic event they were participating in, and we imagined a picture of the world with little fires lighting up wherever a fellow pizza oven builder was firing his/her oven ...

With so many children around and it being lunch time and all, the party didn't get very raucous, nor have we got many embarassing pictures. I hope you lot will do better. I can't wait for summer when I can cook pizzas untill well into the night, aided by many glasses of red wine...

Still, we had a lovely relaxing afternoon together, and many great pizzas, so all in all I feel the Swiss chapter made a worthy contribution to the first Worldwide pizza party.

Over to you now, go forth and do likewise - can't wait to read what you're getting up to...!


.... pics to follow - my brother took them on his camera, and they're too big. Hmm, now where did I read something about this...???

8.20PM in Turkey..............fire has been on for an hour and a half. Trying to coordinate times so a late start. I expect there is much activity over Sacramento way right now. We don't have children to worry about so just chillin' out and having a few liveners.

Great job in Switzerland Frances.

Just had the weirdest flashback. Belgium null points. Eurovision song contest.

Never mind ...........onward and upward.

More later.

Frances,

Nice to put a face to the posts. Looks like a lot of fun with good WFO food. Wish my weather here was as good. Seems February will never end. Didn't plan to announce this till a bit later on but your post put me in mind. My annual Bread Bash at Mary G's Artisan Breads will be held on May 24th here in Ontario. Couldn't handle all 3500+ members, but any members nearby or farby(sic) are welcome. This year's theme will be Italian, with pizza, calzone, ciabatta, etc.

A like the image of all those bright fire spots lighting up the map.

Jim
