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!

  • Vaughn's Almond Biscotti

    An easy recipe.... but to be decadent dip them 1/2 way in melted chocolat!

    for a 350 degree oven (no fire)

    3 large eggs
    3/4 cup honey
    1 cup sugar
    3/4 t vanilla extract
    1/2 t almond extract
    pinch of salt
    10 ounces whole blanched almonds
    2 1/2 to 3 cups of unbleached flour

    whisk eggs in mixer with honey, sugar, salt and extracts until thoroughly blended, about 2 minutes

    stir in almonds with wooden spoon and gradually incorporate flour

    flour hands and divide the soft sticky dough into 4 pieces forming logs and placing on a non stick baking sheet. They are about 3 x 11 inch logs, but they flatten out a bit into the biscotti.

    Bake until dough is an even golden brown, about 20 to 30 minutes. Remove and cool for 10 minutes, then slice into 1/2 inch pieces. Stand upright on baking sheet and return to the oven until a deep golden brown, about 10 minutes longer.

    Cool and store (or freeze) in a tight container or zip-loc...... pull out a couple for an easy & tasty treat!

      Jim,

      You are now, officially, my hero.
      I pay a buck and a half at Starbucks for these things. I'll try your recipe this weekend after pizza.

        I tried the recipe. Here's what I got.

        Lot's of biscotti and most with some chocolate on them. Mmmm. The dough is wet and sticky, but tastes so good! Can't wait for the morning coffee to try one!
