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!

  • Back on my feet and baking

    I'll admit it, between a two week school break and getting a bug I hadn't baked for a while -- and I missed by own bread. Is it OK to say that? :-)

    This is 40% KA GP and 60% whole wheat with 20% whole rye. It's a little underproofed and undersprung, but I guess that's OK. Ahhhh.

    Looks like you did pretty good for a "rusty" baker!

    Your oven spring looks pretty good for the high whole wheat and rye content. Did you use sourdough or commercial yeast?

    Be well!

      Thanks Jay,
      For now, I am doing all of my hearth bread with the sourdough I got from CJ. I'm only using yeast for pizza dough and focaccia. The weather is getting better, and I'm thinking of doing more videos.

          The list is pretty long:

          1. Ciabatta with poolish dough
          2. Pizza dough
          3. Sourdough whole wheat bread
          4. Tuscan grilling
          5. Coq a vin al forno
          6. Focaccia dough and baking

          More?

            Hi James!

            You are on the same "program" I am. Sourdough for all bread and yeast for pizza and foccacio (though I do occasionaly cross both bounds). After I return from defending my dissertation in April, our local top pizza place, Dough, and I are going to be experimenting together on sourdough pizza. Should be fun.

            The videos sound good! Keep'em coming!

              That's an interesting thought. I wonder how many people make sourdough pizza. I'm going to post something.

              Good luck with your defense Jay.

                Thank you!

                It is truly intimidating to be a 60+year old doctoral candidate. Cramming all this stuff in my head is PAINFUL! But...rewarding in some form, I guess.
