Welcome and thanks for visiting. My name is Chad and I am a professional pastry baker. I have had over ten years of experience teaching the art of pizza and about a lifetime’s experience of enjoying pizza. If you have taken one of my classes before, then I hope this site will function as a useful supplement to the material you were given. What lays beyond these doors is a collection that has resulted from far too many years of pizza obsession on my part. If anything I have learned can help you along in your quest for the perfect pie than please help yourself to any tips or techniques you may come across.
The best advice I can give you is this : relax. We all want everything we cook to come out perfectly but it just doesn’t always work out that way. So enjoy what you do, let the food be what it is and brace for all of your mistakes. I promise that everything will taste better if you find joy in the process. You should never let cooking be a source of stress in your life. If things don’t work out the way you were planning then try changing your plan. Take what you know and do the best you can. It’s all anyone can reasonably ask of you.
Put, more simply, in another man’s words:
“Empty your mind. Be formless, shapeless – like water. Now you put water into a cup, it becomes the cup. You put water into a bottle, it becomes the bottle. You put water into a teapot, it becomes the teapot. Now water can flow, or it can crash. Be water my friend.”
