Chef John Montenegro of Supreme Pizza in Seattle talks about finding a love for and exploring the world of artisan bread making.
We get into what draws us to baking & John shares what he loves about good cook books. We also talk about the appeal of adventure and following a calling. At some point we completely derail by discussing candy bars in perhaps too much depth.
Follow John on Instagram @jpmonten & if you live in Seattle, check out Supreme in either West Seattle or University District.
The books John chose were Artisan Baking Across America: The Breads, the Bakers, the Best Recipes by Maggie Glezer & Ben Fink, and The Three Musketeers by Alexandre Dumas. Other books discussed were Team of Rivals and No Ordinary Time by Doris Kearns Goodwin, Five Billion Years of Solitude: The Search for Life Among the Stars by Lee Billings, & Say Nothing by Patrick Radden Keefe.
Food places referenced were Acme in San Francisco; Chez Panisse Restaurant; The Bread Farm in Edison, WA; Dahlia Bakery, Le Panier, Columbia City Bakery, & Macrina in Seattle.
