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!

  • Christmas pizza party suggestions

    My wife and I are going to have a few close friends over for a Christmas WFO Pizza Party. We are trying to come up with a few appetizer/finger food things to serve along with the pizza. We like to have a casual non sit down style event but are having trouble coming up with a few other items to serve. They do not have to be WFO recipes.

    Any input would be great.

    I always make devilled eggs because they can be made the day before and filled shortly before guests arrive. I have also done some lamb chops, cooked as a rack in the WFO as you are bringing it up to temp. 12 minutes, turning regularly, let rest, then cut into individual servings. Anyway, other folks have done stuffed mushrooms (again, make ahead and stick in the wfo right before serving), stuffed jalapeno peppers, and baked brie (too much cheese if serving with pizza). Good luck, I know you will think of just the right thing.

      We have a pretty good collection of appetizer recipes on FB.com; I think I have made most (or all) of them. Check it out here; these are also on the FB CD ROM. A hot brick oven with coals (cooler than pizza heat) is the perfect appetizer machine:

      This is a partial list:

      Grilled Shrimp on Rosemary Skewers

      Grilled Mushrooms

      Grilled Eggplant

      Seared Prawns

      Toasted Almonds

      Tomato, Basil, and Goat Cheese Tapas

      Albondigas (Spanish Meatballs)

      Cold Grilled Eggplant

      Gambas Pil-Pil (Sizzling Prawns)
      Pizza Ovens
      Outdoor Fireplaces

        Also, roasted garlic is always good - alone or with WFO bread. Cut the tops off the garlic, place in aluminum foil with 1Tbs of water. Heat at ~350 degrees F for +/- 30 minutes.

          are Dave's mushrooms in there? Dead easy and the garlic and oil leftover might be the best part!
