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!

    I was forwarded a reference for Eatwild.com, a web site that specializes in promoting grass fed livestock and local ranches. I hope to find others in this forum that might have additional conections for quality local farm foods.

    Here's an organization that promotes organic gardening and resource conservation here in Seattle:

      Thanks Papavino!
      I guess I should have started this in "ingredients". Web admin please feel free to move this thread if you desire.

        I'm always looking for local ingredients. Tilth gives tips on growing your own produce organically. Wooly pigs are available around the country. They supply neutered pigs, if anyone wants to raise their own. They are some of the more flavorful and fatty pigs that you can get here in the US. Delicious. They are full of fat.

          woohoo! One of my favorite subjects!
          The most comprehensive site I know about is localharvest.org
          They've got listings for every category of food and lots of other interesting stuff besides.
          While you're there, take a look at the CSA listings for your area and get yourself hooked up with a farmshare. I can't say enough about the awesomeness that is community supported agriculture, and it's one of the easiest ways to get the best possible local produce. I can't imagine life without it.
