Coming Attractions, Week of May 9th
Welcome back to Pizza Quest.com! This week we will be posting a new webisode, shot at the world famous Tartine Bakery (right next door to Pizzeria Delfina in San Francisco’s “Gastro District”). This is the bakery that I wrote about in Artisan Breads Everyday that makes my current favorote loaf of bread in the world. Join us on Thursday when we post Part One of Tartine.
On Tuesday, I’ll be sharing a blog entry from our friend Jensen Lorenzen, chef and co-owner of The Cass House Inn in Cayucos, California. Jensen and his wife Grace attended this year’s Terra Madre event in Turin, Italy, and Jensen’s blog about it exemplify what we’re trying to promote here on PizzaQuest.com: the celebration of artisans and artisanship. You’ll see what I mean when you log on and read his entry, and then follow the link to see his beautiful photos of artisan foods taken in Italy.
I’m off for parts unknown to film some new Pizza Quest footage with our producers and a few special guest. I’ll tell you more when I return, so keep checking back. In the meantime, enjoy Tartine on Thursday, and Italy through the eyes of Chef Jensen on Tuesday. I’ll be back soon with news about our “secret” pizza shoot….
Pizza Quest Info
Pizza Quest is a site dedicated to the exploration of artisanship in all forms, wherever we find it, but especially through the literal and metaphorical image of pizza. As we share our own quest for the perfect pizza we invite all of you to join us and share your journeys too. We have discovered that you never know what engaging roads and side paths will reveal themselves on this quest, but we do know that there are many kindred spirits out there, passionate artisans, doing all sorts of amazing things. These are the stories we want to discover, and we invite you to jump on the proverbial bus and join us on this, our never ending pizza quest.
