Hi Everyone,

I just got back from an amazing weekend at the Forno Bravo Expo, in Salinas, California (near Monterey) where we did demo’s, filmed hours of new material for Pizza Quest, and met a lot of great people, many who already own WFO’s (Wood-Fired Ovens), and even Fire Within ovens on wheels.  I’m still unpacking, so will write a longer post, with photos, in a few days after I have a chance to gather my thoughts and make a list of all the people I want to thank for making it an extraordinary gathering of serious “fire-freaks,” pizza lovers, and much more.

We’ll also soon be posting Part Three of the Peppe Miele series as well as our usual fun columns.  Just wanted to let you know that I’m back and there’s lots more to come.

I had so much fun at Pizza Expo with four chefs demonstrating pizza dough recipes, topping combinations and whole fish and chicken baking in Forno Bravo’s various wood burning ovens. I didn’t want to leave. Talbott wines were so good we had to buy some.

    We did too. We had a great group of chefs in a great setting with great people attending the Expo. Thanks for coming. See you next year…

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.
