I'm about to head out for Texas (7 cities in 8 days!!) but wanted to post one more time before hitting the road.
Big news: If you live in the Charlotte area keep Saturday February 6th in mind for a very special night at Pie Town. We'll be doing a fixed price "Dinner with Peter" night in which we'll be introducing four brand new pizzas--and everyone who comes will get all four. Here they are: Shrimp Scampi Pizza with Lemon Aioli Sauce; Barbecued Pizza with my own "Holy Smoke" BBQ Sauce (maybe some of you remember this sauce from our days at Brother Juniper's Cafe in Forestville, California 20 years ago--yes we're bringing it back and I just made a big batch tonight for the occassion); Short Rib Pizza with Garlic Potatoes and "Secret Sauce;" and finally, by popular request, the ultimate Pepperoni Supreme featuring Giacamo's pepperoni. The price is $28.00 (exclusive of gratuity and alcohol) and includes salad, beverage, and gelato. I'll be leading a discussion after we taste each pizza to get your thoughts and suggestions, but I think you're going to flip for all four of these--we've had fun creating them with our pizzaiolo team. Call Pie Town to make a reservation (704) 379-7555, or write to email@example.com . I'll be doing a book signing at 6 PM and we'll move into the dining room at 6:30.
Just got word that Artisan Breads Everyday is going in for a second printing. That's huge news, so thanks to all who already bought a copy and for spreading the word.
Speaking of spreading the word, if any readers of this blog also participate in other bread blogs or discussion groups please feel free to let them know about my upcoming classes, especially in California, which is coming up in about a month (all of the dates are on previous postings). If any of you are coming to these classes please let me know so we can meet up. Who knows, maybe there will even be a pizza hunt after the class.
I'll try to check e-mails from the road (firstname.lastname@example.org) but, if you don't hear back from me it means I'm trying to keep my head above water during this tour. Sooner or later I'll get back to you. Thanks in advance for your patience. I'll file a report when I get back. Till then,
May your bread always rise!
