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!

    We layered the raw shrimp with chopped garlic, EVOO, and herbs. This was devoured about 30 seconds after I took this picture.

    Yum! How long did it take to cook? Two minutes or so? Did you keep it in the entrance, or slide it in all the way? I have got to get some dishes like that!

      Not long at all - I didn't time it, but just a few minutes. The pictured shrimp had their shells removed - makes them pretty, but I did a batch a week later with their shells still on and they turned out even better.

      My brother in law got me those dishes. They are called cazuelas.

              I love shrimp! What did you cook those in? Ceramic dish? Ditto on the question about where you placed them.

                Re: Shrimp

                Here's my take on the dish - but sorry, no prawns/shrimps at this stage!

                This is my cast iron skillet, and it took but five minutes in the oven (800f) to reach VERY hot, and I put the prawns in. The prawns were jumbo size North Atlantic ones (from Sainsbury's if you're in the uk). There were about 100 of them, and they all went.

                In the skillet are garlic, chopped chillies, whole chillies and a sprinkling of 'Pimenton'.

                In practice, the prawns were heated just right (they were pre-cooked, frozen and defrosted on the day), but were not very hot (spice) at all, although some tender palettes reported that they were .

                I just love the colours here, and in fact, the food experience is almost as much about what the food looks like as it is the taste.

                    Tim,

                    I got our jumbo prawns from Salisbury's too! I cooked them in a cast skillet without the chillies though! Once cooked we had them and then surf n turf.

                      HA! Such an old thread, but the food looks SO fresh!

                      Thanks Graham... I no longer have a WFO, sadly...

                      Still, I do have the skillet. It's brilliant.

                        My favorite way is right out of the water.

                        Pull your pots.



                        Have your better half inspect



                        After heading the buggers pop them in a bag with some lemon or lime juice, garlic and some spices



                        Cook them up in a cast iron skillet in hot olive oil and enjoy as tacos or by themselves.

                              Season opens April 14th! But I probably won't get the boat out until the end of May at the soonest.
