Peter’s Blog, Feb. 28th, 2013
This will just be a quickie, as I’m working on a deadline for a project, but I wanted to give everyone a heads up that in the coming days I will be posting a report on my recent mini-pizza quest around Charlotte, where I had a chance to visit with the Executive Chef of Wolfgang Puck’s new “Pizza Bar.” For some unknown but beneficial reason for me, Wolfgang chose Charlotte as the place to launch this new concept, which has been open now for about 8 months and has been very well received. The pizzas are superb so, more on this, plus my visits to Mellow Mushroom, Luisa’s, and, of course, Pure Pizza.
In addition, I will post photos and stories from this Saturday’s Beer Dinner at Pure which, thanks to some of you, is now sold out. So, lots of news to report and, as soon as I can get my photos up and my words on the page, it’s all coming your way.
In addition, Brad is on fire with his new “pepperoni” concepts, so he will be posting another piece on his latest passion. I really think he’s onto something here. And John Arena has promised at least one more, and maybe more, in his series on what it takes to go pro. And we’re also just days from posting the next video in the Basta Pizza/Beer Challenge, so lots of good things coming your way. Keep checking back, as there’s always something new here on Pizza Quest.
