Pizza Quest Globe

Coming Attractions, week of May 16th

Welcome back! This week we will be posting Part Two of the journal of Chef Jensen Lorenzen from his trip to Terra Madre in Turin. Look for it in my Peter’s Blog section on Tuesday, along with an update on my recent trip to Boulder, where we filmed some new material for our webisode and instructional sections. I’ll tell you all about it on Tuesday.

On Wednesday, we’ll be posting another in a series of Brad English pictorials (in-house we call these pictorials, “If Brad Can Do It So Can You”). This time, he’ll be creating at home an exciting pizza he learned from Kelly Whitaker of Pizzeria Basta–it promises to be a lot of fun, as always.

On Friday we have another controversial Guest Column from our pizzaiolo “iconoclast” John Arena, once again challenging some long held, sacred truisms. This week it’s all about whether the good old days of pizza were really as good as we think they were. Would love to get your thoughts on this one in the comments section.

Next week we’ll head back to Tartine for Part Two of our visit there, so keep checking back because there’s always something new here at Pizza Quest.

Pizza Quest Info


Vision Statement

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.
