Happy Easter and Passover!!
It's been a while as we've been working away on the new book and also trying to keep up with PizzaQuest.com. The good news is that book is moving ahead quite radidly and we're down to the final two months of recipe testing. Mark Witt, our intrepid webmaster on this, has ironed out most of the logistical challenges and informs me that we can add another group if there's anyone out there who missed the previous opportunities. If so, please read back through some of my earlier posts here and then contact him at [email protected] for next steps.
In other news, I recently attended the 7th Annual Asheville Bread Festival (hard to believe we've had seven already and I've been to every one!). For a report on that, check out the Peter's Blog section at www.pizzaquest.com The past two postings there were dedicated to the festival and, of course, you'll also find great recipes and instructional videos we've made, as well as quite a number of fun Pizza Quest webisodes.
For those who are wondering and have been asking, I won't be doing too much travel teaching for the next year, other than to festivals (there's a possible one in Minneapolis in September that is in the planning stages) and for some of my consulting clients. But I do hope to get back on the road next year around this time, after the book comes out. As always, I'll post my schedule and appearances here and also at PizzaQuest.com.
Hope to see some new names on the tester list, and thanks especially to Mark and all the testers (over 100) who have jumped in.
Till next time, may your bread always rise!
