Peter Reinhart asks the question: What would you craft into perfection?

On Friday, June 1 at The Fillmore Charlotte, 400+ creative Charlotteans gathered to hear Johnson & Wales University “Chef on Assignment” and multiple Beard Award-winning baker and author, Peter Reinhart, speak to us on our global theme of “Craft.” Peter used the theme to bring us along on his story-filled journey for the perfect pizza – a quest documented in his ongoing project, Pizza Quest. The tour included stops from childhood to present day, and while our hearts and minds were greatly fed this morning, we all left hungry!
