Okay, so I fly out of Charlotte on Thursday (tomorrow), headed for Portland, Oregon and three days of intensive pizza hunting. If anyone is in the vicinity, I will be at Tastebuds on Saturday morning (Feb. 28) at 11 AM to taste their Montreal-style bagels and wood-fired pizzas. Feel free to join me if you can. It's at 3220 SE Milwaukie in Portland. It would be great to meet you in person.
Then, I head to SF for the big, week-long photo shoot. I probably won't post here again till I get back on March 9th.
I am also supposed to be a guest on Gene Burns Radio Show on KGO on Saturday morning, March 7th--don't know the time and still haven't heard back if it's a definite, but I think it will happen. More definite is on Sunday, the 8th, a book signing and reading at 3 PM at Omnivore Books in Noe Valley, at 3885A Cesar Chavez St. Call the store for more details, (415) 282-4712. I plan on bringing some of the breads from the photo shoot for you to sample.
Don't forget the Asheville Bread Festival on Saturday, March 28th at Green Life Market, beginning at 10 AM. I will be giving a talk later that day at A-B Tech as part of the festival, all about the new book and the "delayed fermentation" method we've been working on together (me and our 350 recipe testers!). The link for details is on our Forum site.
Finally, another round of thanks to Mark Witt for his incredible support in setting up and managing the forum and the photo gallery (see previous post for the links and details), and to all of you who have registered and are participating in our new "bread-head" community. Who knows how it will develop and what interesting things will come out of it. Thanks to all!!
May your bread always rise!
