Coming Attractions, Week of March 28th
This week we travel to San Francisco to meet James Beard award winning chef Craig Stoll, owner of Pizzeria Delfina (right next door to his wonderful, award winning osteria, Delfina). We’ll also meet Pizzeria Delfina’s head pizzaiolo Anthony Strong, as passionate a pizza freak as I’ve ever met. In this week’s webisode segment Anthony will show us how he makes Delfina’s distinctive Margherita pizza. Over the next few weeks we’ll continue to explore the many aspects of their Mission District neighborhood, known as The Gastro, with Craig, Anthony and a few other residents of the Gastro. You’ll love this series, which begins on Thursday!
I’ll be posting another Peter’s Blog entry on Tuesday and, on Friday, a short explanation and instructional on the stretch and fold method that has been revolutionizing bread baking these past few years.
We’ll be taking a week off from Guest Columns to give you a chance to catch up with the many thoughtful pieces already posted from our contributors. If you have posted comments in the past and did not see them on the site, we think we solved this technical issue and all viewers should now be able to post comments. If you still don’t see them, write to us at firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know.
Hope to see some of you at this Saturday’s Seventh Annual Asheville Bread Festival.
Have a great week!

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.
