Hi Everyone,

At last, we have now launched a YouTube Channel for the Johnson & Wales International Symposium on Bread, and you can watch all the talks by clicking here. If you want to watch just the 2 1/2 minute highlight reel, you can go here.

If you aren’t familiar with the Symposium, scroll down the Homepage to my earlier posts and recap of the event, which was held 2 months ago here in Charlotte, NC. Things are looking really good for a second year, and we should have the dates figured out within a couple of weeks so, if you’d like to be on the mailing list for the newsletter and save the date announcement write to me at .

So, lots of videos to watch if you’re a serious bread-head, as well as a chance to hear and see some of the great luminaries in the world of bread, such as Chad Robertson (Tartine), Glenn Roberts (Anson Mills), Nadezhda and Stefan Savova-Grigorova (who we interviewed here on Pizza Quest a few months ago about their Bakers Without Borders program), Tom Gumpel (Panera), Wolfgang Mock (the godfather of home milling), Stefan Cappelle (“The Future of Bread Lies in its Past”), Francisco Migoya (“Modernist Bread”), bread historian William Rubel (a very wild, salty, and memorable presentation), and many others.

Meanwhile, we’ll be back next week with a new interview and an update on my upcoming fall classes. Till then, enjoy the Symposium!!

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.
