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!

  • Alpine maccaroni (Aelplermagrone)

    A new one for the baked pasta threads. This is one of the Swiss national dishes, and also a good way of using up left overs.

    500 g boiled potatoes cut into 1/2 inch cubes
    200 g pasta (penne, maccaroni or similar) - cooked
    200 g Swiss mountain cheese - I like Appenzeller best, but Gruyere or Raclette are also ok. It needs to be fairly strong tasting anyway.

    Mix them all together and put in the oven at anywhere between 150 and 210 C until everything is well warmed through and the cheese has melted.

    In the meantuime you put 2 tblsp of butter and two large sliced onions in a frying pan and fry until golden brown. Then add 50 g milk, 50 g of cream and salt to taste into the pan with the onions (or a bit more, I usually just splosh a some in) and pour it over the cheese/potatoe/pasta mix.

    Serve with apple sauce.

    As usual it tried to run away when I took the photo, but it tasted very good! There seems to be something about the combination of onion and apple that just appeals to me....

    Looks really great Frances! I'm going to try this one! Is it a sin to throw in some meat in the mix?

      You really had my tastebuds going there Frances until the applesauce....my brain went screeeeching to a halt! But I will give the idea time to settle in and try this sometime. Thanks for sharing and, as usual, your photos are wonderful.

        My Dad hates onions, so when he comes round and we're having this I make him a portion without onions. Seems a bit pointless, but he likes it that way...

        My point is this: Sure, add meat. Or leave out the apple sauce. Or add garlic. It won't be real Aelplermagrone anymore, but so what as long as it tastes good.

        Krosskraft, apple sauce goes with pork chops, doesn't it? Well, this is just the same only different

          Frances, is Emmental an acceptable variation for the cheese? This town also has medium cheddar, processed, and canned cheeses too

            Hmm, Emmental is a bit mild. Maybe mix it with some strong tasting cheddar.

            Are there really only three kinds of cheese on sale in your town?? ... I'll trade you some Appenzeller if you like

              No Frances. Just kidding - but we don't have those listed on the recipe.
