Peter’s Blog, March 22nd, 2012
Anyway, the demo in Ashevlle will be the first of what we hope will be a nationwide tour of demos and classes, and I’ll post those dates as we have them. In the meantime, if there’s any chance of joining us this Saturday, the 24th, the festival will be held at A-B Tech, inside and outside of the Magnolia Building (their culinary program is top notch, located inside the Magnolia Building). A-B Tech is an amazing community technical college, sitting on some of the choicest land in Asheville. I’ve been told that this was the property the Vanderbilts actually wanted for their Biltmore House, but the owner, probably someone named Buncombe, I’m guessing, refused to sell it to them so they built it a couple of miles away; kind of a fall back Plan B, which turned out pretty good for them after all, and all of us who have visited what turned out to be the largest private home ever built in the USA — but that’s another story). Anyway, for more info on the bread festival, go to the official website: www.ashevillebreadfestival.com/
I hope to see some of you there and, if you do come, please let me know that you are a Pizza Quest follower. I’ll bring my camera and take some new photos for next week’s posting, including some of any fellow Questors. I’ve got to go now and gather my seed grinder, ingredients, baking pans, etc., and start packing up for the drive. Hope to see you there….

Pizza Quest Info
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.
