Peter’s Blog, Aug. 1, 2014
I’m about to head out with my wife SUsan for some long-awaited R&R, so will just post a quick one today and do a more substantial posting when I get back. I want to tell you then all about The Kneading Conference that I just attended in Skowhegan, Maine, a true fantasy camp for serious bread-heads, but still need to gather my photos and collect my thoughts. I learned new things about sourdough starters worth sharing, and had some pretty righteous wood-fired pizza and, of course, breads, breads, breads (including my own demo, featuring sprouted wheat flour). Still to come….
Also, wanted to suggest that you check out my friend Dede Wilson’s terrific website, www.Bakepedia.com where she recently did a pizza posting featuring me, and also posted my “How to Re-Heat Cold Pizza” trick. This should get you there but if it doesn’t just go to the website and type my name in the search box: http://www.bakepedia.com/?s=peter+reinhart&submit.x=0&submit.y=0 . But there’s a lot more there than pizza there — a great resource for all aspects of baking. Enjoy!
More when II get back….
