Coming Attractions, Week of July 4th
Happy Independence Day week!!! I hope some of you are making grilled pizzas this year — let us know if you do.
This week, on Thursday, we’ll be posting the next in our webisode series filmed in Cayucos, California. Chef Jensen Lorenzen and his wife Grace, owners of the Cass House Inn, took me to the nearby Ruddell’s Smokehouse, where we had a great visit with Jim Ruddell and learned some of his secrets for smoking albacore and other fish, some of which will show up on top of a pizza in next week’s segment.
On Tuesday, I’ll be back with another Peter’s Blog, pondering the virtues of the many varieties of flour now available to home and professional pizzaiolo’s. It’s a golden age for pizza freaks, for sure!
In the coming weeks we’ll be exploring sourdough pizza, as well as more on fish tacos and the beer/pizza connection. Keep coming back since there’s always something new here at Pizza Quest!
