  This is a time for commencements, graduations, and the completion of cycles. On Saturday we celebrated the annual graduation of our students at Johnson & Wales University and I loved watching our 1,100 grads confirm their educational experience by marching up to proudly accept their diplomas, going through the formal, ritual ceremony that marks such a significant transition into adulthood. It was indeed a confirmation service, like a bar…Read More…

We’re about to visit with Chef Jensen Lorenzen and his wife Grace in a small coastal town in Central California with a series of upcoming webisode segments.  I was recently watching one of the pizza making sessions where Jensen and Peter used some unique local ingredients and created a wonderful pizza.  I felt compelled to give it a shot.

I knew pizza was a hot subject but we recently received a note from the folks at the California Culinary Schools website telling us about their top 50 pizza blogs.
