Pizza Quest, with guest Ed Zimmerman on The Real California Pizza Contest Results
Welcome back to Pizza Quest!
Ed Zimmerman is a name not many people outside the pizza and food service industry know (though those of in the pizza world all know him), but all of us, whether in or outside of the profession, are impacted by the creative work he does. His company, The Food Connector, organizes the annual Real California Pizza Competition, on behalf of their client, The California Milk Advisory Board (the CMAB). This has turned into a major event for professional pizza makers, with serious prize money, and a great way for home chefs to also find inspiration for new ways to make pizza by tracking the results and the recipes. Ed fills us in on this year’s contest results and on the many other creative things he and his team do to help promote the pizza industry and its many products. He is a human bundle of creative ferment, as you will see during this stimulating conversation.
