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!

  • No Yeast Sourdough Bread

    Would someone have a recipe for a sourdough bread that is made with no yeast? The Italian Community in Griffith NSW Australia bakes this kind of bread but I can't seem to find a recipe. From what I can gather it is simply flour, salt and water however I do not know quantities, length of time resting and baking times and temperatures. Can anyone help please?

    There are tons of books on the subject, but I started out with this thread and worked on from there:

      It's important to recognize that yeast is unavoidable. It's in the air around us, on the fruits and vegetables we eat, and, most importantly, in the flour we use to bake bread. Given time, a dough made with just flour and water will rise as a result.
