I'm Peter Reinhart! Ask Me Anything! Monday, February 15, 2016 7:00-8:00 pm EST

To kick off our AMA feature, we have invited author, chef and master bread maker and host of Pizza Quest, Peter Reinhart, to be our first host! Peter will be in the Forum on Monday, February 15th, from 7:00 - 8:00 pm EST. If you are unable to be online during the live session, you can post your questions in the sticky post. Peter will answer those questions during the live session on February 15th. You can view Peter's answers to your questions as well as what happened during the live session in the session thread.

Ask Me Anything New Forum Feature

You will notice a new forum at the top of the main page called, "Ask Me Anything". This forum will be used for live one hour "Ask Me Anything" (AMA) sessions hosted by people who are knowledgeable in different areas pertaining to wood fired ovens. How it works:
- Each AMA will have a "sticky" thread where the community can post questions they would like answered during the live session. This will allow everyone to participate even if you can't be online for the live session. These questions will not be answered by the host until the live AMA; if you need an answer quickly, you should post it in the appropriate Forum area for the community to respond.
- Another thread will be posted for the live AMA. Registered users who are logged in during the live session can interact with the host by asking questions and receiving responses.
- The live thread will remain in the AMA forum to view after the session.

We hope you enjoy this new feature! Please let us know if there is a topic that you'd like to have as an AMA and we'll look for a host!

  • Baked Cheese Appetizer

    We had a nice brick oven appetizer in restaurant this weekend. Baked cheese over slices of rustic hearth bread; topped with diced, sauted porcini mushrooms.

    The appetizer was served in a terracotta oval dish. It was 2-3 slice of hearth bread (Pane Toscana in this case), topped with slices of smoked scamorza, and a nice dollop of a porcini tapena. They had put it in the oven until the cheese was bubbly and brown, and placed the terracotta oval right on the table. It was called Formaggio al forno.

    We shared it, and some other appentizers across multiple families, and everyone like it. We cut pieces off, and served them around.

    You could do this with any cheese that melts nicely -- gruyere, munster, raclette, gouda, smoked gouda, etc.

    Give it a try.

      Sounds yummy. Somehow it reminds me of the Pan della Dia in Spain. All the bars have a very simple bread appetizer that they serve for a dollar or two, toasted and often topped with ham or cheeses. Very simple, very nice.
