International Symposium on Bread is This Week

Hi All,

This is a crazy week for me so I won’t be posting anything new, other than to let you know that on Wednesday I will be hosting about 100 people at the third annual Johnson & Wales University International Symposium on Bread (also known as On the Rise). Since it hasn’t happened yet I don’t have any photos to post, but I’ll put up one from the first event, back in 2017. Then, after it ends, I’ll be back next week with a short recap and some photos of the incredible breads I foresee emerging from the workshops. Till then, please keep checking back  for a recap.

I’ll end today with what I call the “Baker’s Blessing.”  May your crust be crisp and your bread always rise!”


Note:  This bread sculpture, made from 100% edible dough products, depicts the story of the Wright Brothers, from conception in their small bicycle shop to their first flight on Kitty Hawk, NC. This sculpture, created by my JWU colleague, Chef Harry Peemoeller, served as the emblem and centerpiece of the initial Symposium in 2017

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.
